Oil Pan Both Threads?

EDIT: Title should be: Oil Pan Bolt Threads?

Alright. So I went to change my oil. Last time, I really tightened the bolt due to a light oil leak through the plug. I used a larger socket than I should've to get it off just now. Needless to say, the bolt it messed up. Since this is my only ride, I can't take it out and drive to Ace Hardware for comparison.

My question: What is the threading on the oil pan bolt?

Thanks, guys.

Those bolts are only supposed to be tightened to about 20 or 30lbs which is not very tight at all, over torquing them will only strip out the threads in the block. If the pan is leaking you probably need a new gasket. It could be the rear main seal or the oil filter housing o-rings (not the filter gasket) as well these are common causes of leaks for jeep engines too.

Check my site - I list stuff like this...

Use the 1996-up oil sump gasket, the one-piece moulded rubber is easier.

The small screws down the sides are 1/4"-20x1/2". Torque to 84 pound-inches/7 pound-feet. The large ones in the corners are 5/16"-18x3/4", torque to 132 pound-inches/11 pound-feet. A bit of light-duty LocTite (#222 or equivalent, or clear nail polish. Even silicone will work) won't go amiss. Check and retorque after a week's service.
