Stripped drain plug on Tiptronic

Recommended Posts

How to fix a stripped drain plug on the Tiptronic transmission?

I was trying to find a solution when I realized "do I really need a drain plug?"

If the Tiptronic was intended to never have an oil change why there is a drain plug?

Anyway... yes, we do need to change the oil and the filter! at least very 80K-90K miles!

Just a couple tips... 1) the drain plug will easily strip, 2) Use the Toyota type IV OIL @ 7$ per quarter

The tranny speak Japanese so don't waste your money at the Porsche dealer..

And finally, you need to change the filter so the oil pan will be removed anyway and the oil with it

That's why I decided to not spend 180$ for a new oil pan.

I'm sorry, but that is just plain crude.  If I had the car in for a PPI, I would warn the potential buyer to be very circumspect about the condition of the transmission as we service them every 40-50K, not at the factory 90K, and you have no idea what else is wrong with it as well as having to absorb the cost of fixing your "repair" before it could be serviced.


Your welder could have also drilled out the damaged drain bung and welded in a new one, hit it with a dab of spray paint and it would have been like new for a couple of bucks.
