Yes you can fix it in one of two ways. You can retap the pan with new threads and get an oversized plug, or the easier way, a "Pan Saver Plug". The pan saver has a rubber plug that pushes through the drain hole and then a wing nut that when you tighten it, compresses the rubber in the pan against the pan itself so it doesn't leak. It is a very easy fix with one of these.
Call your local parts store and ask if they have them. The brand we have are actually called "Pan Saver" and your parts store may not recognize that name, so you may have to describe it to them.
Let me know if you get one and if it works for you. If you have a problem finding one, let me know and I'll find out where our shop orders them from for you.
