Why are you spending $125 to put new threads in a old pan when you can buy a new one for $60?
Hell it is a 03. Good chance you could find a good used one out of a junk yard for $20 if you call around.

Ok, thanks for the replies...I will edit my post to delete the "beware" part, as I do not want to give them a bad rap seeing that this can happen over time. This is the first Honda that anyone in my family has ever owned so I didn't know they are known for this.

They already pulled the plug, so my mom paid the $$ for them to tap a new plug in.
The car has 119,00 miles.

Certain things can wear out after time. But the fact they already discounted it sounds to me the tech stripped it out.

your dozens of cars is sure a statistically valid sample

like it or not, but this shit happens to "American junk" too.

as for sucking used oil out of the dipstick tube, honestly can't say I've heard of that ever being done, let alone experienced it. (I mentioned it to a friend that owns two quicky changes and a couple of car washes as well - and he snortled at the idea (laughed with a snort) )

you mean like any exhaust/header bolts?
or a head bolt?
or a wheel stud?
or a control arm bolt?

or any of the various and sundry other bolts that can/do get stripped or corroded to fukc and back after 10 years on the roads in the midwest?

Shit wears out.

I'm guessing aluminum pan.

I doubt a dealership would use one of the self tapper bolts for a repair, give them credit for at least suggesting a proper repair.

Replacing the pan might be more expensive than the repair if the pan cannot be removed without lifting the engine.

For some reason, this thread is making me think of the car wash thread- i.e. I don't want to do the job myself, and the people I trusted to do it made things worse.

Shit happens.

I've spent the last 8 years wrenching on Honda's. The drain pug does require a aluminum crush washer and needs to be torqued at 29 to 31 lbs. The drain plugs threads will not strip if the proper torque is followed. Sometimes we see higher mileage vehicles with stretched threads, however, those will still tighten. Stripped threads are the fault of the person with the wrench. (and by higher mileage I mean 300 To 400k). Btw Accords have been built in Ohio for the last 30 years. The only exception were the hybrid Accords in 05-06
