Came to change the oil on my inlaws old lancer gl 1998 1.3 today.
Started turning the sump bolt and it just turned and turned, didn´t loosen at all or change torque/come out.
I thought omg not this again (happened on an old alfa romeo about 15 yrs ago where an oil change station had over tightened the bolt which has another holding nut inside, not a thread in the sump , they had bent the holding pins for that nut so the entire sump had to be removed).
Has this old engine sump got a nut inside held by a few clamps on the inside of the sump? This is why it just spins and does not come out?
If so then the last oil change idiot has over tightened it!! Which will require me to remove the sump!!
