My Ride: '02 325i
Drain plug turned too tight, now loose

Gents,

Yesterday marked my 2nd DIY for the oil change on my 325i, shes an 02 with 138,xxx miles on her, clean. however,I believe I may have turned oil drain plug w/copper ring too tight, as it won't stop turning now,and it drips oil. Mechanic on auto skills center on post thinks I may have stripped threading inside oil pan. I tried to unscrew the drain plug and replace copper crush ring, but it wont pull, only to turn in place. What are my options to resolve this problem? I would like to keep her for the long run? Please share your wisdom, thank you!
