My oil pan is stripped. I now have a small leak. I've already added about a whole quart of oil over the course of a month. I am tight on cash at the moment and was wondering what the cheapest replacement would be. I've heard of heli coils, retapping it, buying a new one. Suggestions?

Drain the oil. Try to retap the threads. Flush it out and see if it leaks. Other than that I would just replace the pan.

Pans are cheap as hell you could just got to an auto zone and get one for under 50$ I would imagine.
