Hi,

From what i understand from the past, you can fix an oil drain plug with an oversized plug but that's only when the threads strip. If the pan is actually ripped apart that means there are giant areas that have to be plugged up. Maybe welding? I never tried that though and dont know if it would work or not. Of course pan has to come off first.
Good luck whatever you decide to do.
I’ve been driving a Volvo long before anyone ever paid me to drive one.
