This is kinda tricky. For one you don't really want to go tapping threads on a pan on the engine for risk of shavings, then again it seems extreme to go through an oil pan swap for a strippped drain plug. I honestly would try to *flamesuit on* put silicone on the threads *suit off*. Just makes for timely oil changes.
