How much should i budget to get a helicoil fitted?
As you probably guessed from the title, Yep, I ballsed up my oilchange. I have done about 8 oil changes on Alfa t-sparks and this is the first to go wrong. What irritated me the most though is that the thread (which was perfect) stripped immediately with no resistance. I simply turned it the wrong way and it span as freely as if i where undoing it.
I have a (very) temporary repair inplace using some PTFE tape but i will get it booked in asap. Can anyone advise how much i should budget for a helicoil to be fitted? And will i need to take any care in future when removing the sump-plug with a helicoil fitted?
Thanks in advance.
