Thanks MTS. Found a solution to my problem - time-sert. I actually stripped my oil pan plug hole threads early Saturday morning. It turns out my torque wrench has a weakness and its the operator. I guess I use a drill too often, because I thought it was going to slip, clutch-style, when it got to 22 ft/lbs. Oh the horror when I looked and saw that the crush washer was in fact annihilated.
I'll be sure to post when I get the time-sert installed.
