Q: So had a mechanic work in my vehicle and the threads in the crankshaft was stripped, would i need a new crankshaft or can someone

asked by on

Just had my vehicle looked at and the mechanic said my threads in my crankshaft was stripped. Would i have to get a new crankshaft? Or can a helicoil be installed? And how much would the dealer charge.

My car has 116000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi There, Depending on how badly the threads are stripped, they may be repairable with a Heli Coil, however this would have to be evaluated on a case by case basis as this does not wok for all situations and a new crankshaft may be the only way to correct the problem. I would suggest have an independent professional from YourMechanic come to your location to take a look at your vehicle to determine the proper way to repair.
