Transmission pan bolt stripped **help**

Fellas! Looking for some input, a quick fix or if leaving it be will be fine. Iím going on a year long deployment and of course Iím having this issue right right before Iím about to leave my wide with the truck!

Dropped the trans pan because Iím swapping a valve body. Of course as Iíve ready everywhere some of the 10mm bolts snapped. No big deal, I pulled them out no problem except this one. It is sooo beyond rusted and seized In there. I soaked in PB blaster for 3 days spraying it about 4 times a day, it still wonít move.

Can I just throw the pan back up and it wonít be a big deal? Maybe around that area on the gasket use some actual blue or black gasket maker and let it ride? I donít have the time to take this into a shop for them to charge me an arm and leg.

Any advice would be amazing guys!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I was thinking of both options. I was worried with the pan up that welding a nut might cause damage to the cheap metal trans pan that is in this truck in the first place.

Thank you for the advice!

ive had luck with drilling out the center. But when making the initial hole dont let it slip. I buy a piece of thin metal or a big washer will work to protect around the hole while drilling. Once its started its easy.

Transmission pan bolt screw substitute

Those screws (in other places on other Toyotas)- I've removed by drilling the center and teasing out the threads. And cleaning up to the point that another identical screw will thread in. But it is a stunt. Shortcut is to drill out and use strong twist on a big screwdriver to install a short pan head screw w/ deep sharp threads and a big head w/ a wide slot.

Isn't this a now a headless screw shaft stuck very tight in a casting? (Photo shows a sort of ghost image.)
Isn't the pan off? ("pan up?")
Weld a nut to what?
Those screws centers are soft enough to center drill by eye and hand drill w/ a sharp small drill. (Don't want to break off the drill in the screw.)

Edit: oops...didn't read thread back far enough to see you got it. Good job!

Yep, best way to repair is to drill/easy-out it. Or drill, then chip off the threads left and clean up.

It really sucks when an easy out breaks off in a broken bolt, that really really makes the day go to hell.
