On the fill plug- talk to Jerry at Burt Toyota and get an allen plug. You'll never strip it again. Use 'em all over the 4Runner, for drain and fill, tranny and diff. Wunnerful. I think they came stock on a Corolla or something.

On removing the old one: weld on a nut. Really. WFLLT.

Yeah, guess I never mentioned that

Alls' well though I still have the boogered diff plug. Emily passed the freeway test, no vibration (of significance) at 90 mph.

Haven't taken it off-road yet

Had to interupt my cruiser work last week to come to Maui for my son's wedding today

Step by step knuckle rebuild and axle maintenance. Sorry I didn't notice this thread sooner, was out of town that week and am still catching up.

Next time I'll try Nitryl, went through a lot of latex gloves but my hands still took a beating.

I'll be dealing with that damned plug upon my return from vacation.

That's another write-up I missed, nice to see so many good ones. They helped me a lot...

Fill Plug Tech: Cruel and Sadistic Method of Removal.

When I was 16, I couldn't get a socket type plug out of my VW transaxle. I too used the jack trick, but all I did was jack up the CAR! Had to be at least 1000 ft/lbs. 5 minutes later with a hammer and chisel, It was out.

I faced a similar challenge on a Volvo. screwed around with a fill plug for hours, then 5 minutes with a hammer and chisel.

As you noticed, the material is soft and brittle. With the chisel, it is OK if you pound off a piece or two of the plug. It is the FLANGE that is stuck, not the threads. By breaking off some of the problem, the impact vibrating things loose, and the rotational force you are applying, the thing will move a little, then 2 hits later will spin easily leaving you grinning all the way to the parts store for a new plug.

I too replaced all (I think) of my fill/drain plugs with allen head plugs.
