Sump plug problem

Well i went to change my oil yesterday, and the sump plug is just spinning in the sump.
Im thinking that the Captive nut has come loose.
Any idea's?

Im also thinking its going to be exspensive.

Re: Sump plug problem

E) tie sump plug to pole and hit reverse

If the nut has come off on the inside you'll have to drop the sump anyway
that will make it a lot easier to get out

Re: Sump plug problem

I read somewhere the factory programming of the vct sump plug is no good...

Might aswell do the serpentine conversion if you've got to drop the sump anyhow Kerry.

Re: Sump plug problem

Damn buddy.... AFAIK its a nut welded to the inside of the pan, whilst your taking the sump off, prolly a very good opportunity to clean that engine bay..
