This afternoon i broke one of the bolts of while putting my oil pan back on. What can i do about this? i dont think i could get the broken part out myself. Should i take it to a shop and get them to fix it, Or should i just not worry about it and check for leaks very often? :talon: :cry:

I can do that i just dont have time to do it right now, i was just wondering if it would be safe to drive as long as i checked for leaks.

I've broken about 2 or 3 around the bottom of the block. Not side by side though of course. I just used some silicone when putting the pan on and never sprouted a leak at all. You should be just fine.
