broken oil cover bolt...

so im an idiot and decided to change my oil while drinking, a lot. I wasnt paying attention and snapped the long bolt off, the one on the right side. the cover is still sealed and no oil appears to be leaking, but i need the broke off bolt out. anyone ever dealt with this problem before? should i attempt it myself or just take it to the shop.

Someone CAN do this themselves... IF they have the skills and the right tools to handle the work. This being said, I'd take it to the shop for them to do it because then, they'd be responsible for doing the job and dealing with any other variables that this could involve... Is there a nub of the broken bolt sticking out after the cover has been removed? Is the nub enough to get a bite on? Will you have to end up using an "easy out"?

So the question(s) are... Do you have the skills? Do you have ALL the tools that might be necessary? Or would you rather pay someone else to have the headache?

And would you be doing this drunk or sober? haha. j/k. If you don't have to tools, and there is no end sticking out, I would definately take it to the shop, and not trying to knock ya, but with you asking, I am assuming you have never used an easy out or tap set or anything, so I think you'd be better off take it to the shop. The hard thing will be because it is such a small diameter bolt, and where you broke it off at.

Just remember if you try to fix it yourself and make it worse they will charge you even more.

I did the same thing the first time I changed my oil. There was a long thread here on it. If you broke off the long bolt you are looking at some work. The clutch housing has to come off to access it. and you cant get the bolt out without jacking the engine up because the frame is in the way. So the engine mounts have to be taken loose. I took mine into the shop. It was about a $300.00 fix. I am replacing all of my bolts because I over-torqued all of them and a short one broke off recently as well. That one I got out with a small screwdriver. These bolts are soft as hell, and it is pretty easy to break them if you are the kind of guy that tend to tighten the hell out of everything like I do. I absolutely hate tightening these bolts when I change my oil because of what happened!
