i searched but didnt get any good results

i changed the oil in my car just now
and when i screwed in the bolt it goes in perfect but when it gets in the middle it gets hard and i have to use a wrench to tighten it

the bolt is now touching the oil pan but when i tighten it it keeps spinning and barely leaks oil

Could the oil pan be stripped or just get another factory bolt

Doesn't sound good man, if the bolt is in good condition, then one must assume the pan is stripped. a new bolt is only like a dollar, might be worth giving it a try next oil change.

If your oil pan is stripped, you might have to have it tapped to the next size bigger and find a larger oil plug.
