Thanks for the input everyone. I kinda got more stubborn over this. There's gotta be something out there that will fix this. But then I shouldn't spend more money on temp fixes. Maybe a pan is the best solution.

Hytekazn, that's a funny story. LOL

I would get a new pan.

I would rather pay a bit more and know some quick fix will not leave me stranded somewhere with no oil in the engine.

I was thinking of JB welding a Fumoto drain valve into the drain hole. This should plug up the leak and i won't need to remove it going forward. What do you guys think?

Risky.

Are you prepared if it decides to break free while you are driving down the highway or on aroad trip?

That's a good point. Luckily, my car is only needed for 8 miles per way to and from work. So i can keep an eye on it regularly. Is oil pan replacement on the Accord labor intensive? I don't have the $200+ to spend on it right now, if I were to take it to the shop.
