OK, so long story short, my mom took her 2002 Mazda Tribute V6 to the dealer for a normal oil change and they tell her that they stripped the threads on the oil drain plug. To fix it temporarily they put a "larger size" drain plug in it's place, but they said that because Mazda puts "cheap aluminum oil pans" on there, that she'll have to pay $250+ for a new oil pan.
Of course I told her to go b**** them out and demand they replace the oil pan they wrecked for free. But she's not like that, so I said if she orders the oil pan I'll do the work.
So I'm wondering how difficult it is to change out an oil pan on a 2002 Tribute V6. Seems pretty straight forward to me, but I thought I'd make sure there aren't any gotchas.
