The best way is with a thread insert.

This is the insert I was talking about, not helicoils, though they will work but not as well.

The oil drain bolt is 14x1.5mm.

Those look like TimeSerts. I've heard they are better than HeliCoils, but much more expensive.
Thanks, I couldn't remember the name of them. Yes they are, on both counts. Best to find a shop that has them and let them do the job rather than buying the kit.

In an emergency, I've used a bottle stopper, the kind that has the little lever you press down which causes the rubber to expand into the hole. It's not really under any pressure but just don't use it as a permanent fix.
