they make an expansion plug that is made of rubber with a nut or bolt in the center. get the size that is a snug fit in the oil drain hole. when inserted tightenthe nutor bolt which will expand the rubber plug. just don,t go hogwild and over tighten it. next oil change reverse procedure and plug should slid right out. if not unscrew the rubber plug same way as a regular plug.

as long as its not aluminum, you can sometimes find kits for it they'll sell the rethreading tool and the new plug together.
