2003 Infiniti I35
My oil pan had a slight leak so, with this most recent oil change, I pulled off the pan and resealed it with ultra black to the upper oil pan. When I went to torque the bolts after waiting an hour, one of the bolts sheered prior to reaching the torque rating. All other bolts were able to get to the specified torque rating.
For reference, it is bolt number 3 in this image (the arrow pointing to
Engine Front is actually pointing to the passenger side):
Will it be a problem after the ultra black has cured to fill the oil and drive the car until the next oil change? or when it starts leaking? At that point I would drill out the sheared bolt and redo the seal. I did use a 1/4" bead of ultra black around the entire pan so the gasket should hold.
I only got the pan put back on this morning so I can't put oil in till tomorrow anyway.
