Default Re: Oil Drain Plug WON'T TIGHTEN

The guy almost shit a brick when he saw the plug and pan pictures, lol. He gave me a free pan which will be mailed from ford, plug and a bunch of complimentary ford merchandise. He offered to install it and do the oil change for free. But I said I already spent money to repair the old pan and will just take the new one in case it leaks down the road. I got a feeling someone is getting fired today.
There is a big difference between a parts changer, ie the guy getting fired, and a mechanic, ie the guy that does the job right, and does the job well.
