there should be 4 bolts you should have 2 small oil pan bolts and 2 larger bolts that go into the front cover, no do not just cram it in there cause if you do crack it your gonna be kickin yourself in the ass! just go get a helicoil kit from an autoparts store and fix it right. very simple fix. unless your lucky enough that you can tap the threads, but if its stripped then you need to helicoil it.
