What kind of permanent fixes can I do for my oil leak.

I replaced my oil pan gasket on my 1990 jeep wrangler, and upon tightening one of the four 1/2 inch bolts, one broke. I now have a gaping gap about 3/4 inch in the middle by 2 in across tapering down on either side. It is fine idling, but now I cannot drive it because it gushes oil upon pressing the throttle. I cannot afford any more major repairs and I need a permanent fix.

Do you
have the same problem?

You have to remove the pan, remove the broken bolt to replace it and replace anything else that was damaged, including the gasket.
