Hi there. The engine and transmission needs to be removed from the engine to access the oil pan. You should try to have an oil plug oversize kit installed or re-thread the pan and put in new threads if it is stripped out. If you would like to have the whole thing replaced, a certified technician from YourMechanic can replace your vehicle’s oil pan at the car’s location.
