Hello everyone, I have a 03 Kia Rio base model with a 5 speed manual transmission, the first time I changed the gear oil I stripped the threads in the transmission case. I can still use the plug but can't get it as tight as I would like. Does anyone know where to find a slightly oversized replacement plug or how to recondition the existing threads. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

ouch... that sucks.

you could cleanup the threads with a pick tool and then put that badboy in there with some oil safe teflon tape.
