Can you use an EZ-out and remove the rest of the bolt? (get em at local hardware stores)

That's what I would do. Hard to say if it will leak or not, depends on how well the seal it with the gasket goo stuff.

I would rather be safe than sorry when it comes to oil.

If you're referring to a bolt that holds the oil pan to the block, you need to do this:

1.) Remove the oil pan
2.) Remove the broken bolt, there's tools that you can drill into them to give you something to hold on to and twist out. Worst case scenario you have to drill out the hole and re-tap some threads.
3.) Clean up all FIPG (gray stuff) on the oil pan and block
4.) Use new FIPG (gray permatrex, or stuff from Toyota) in a small constant beaded line around the oil pan mating surface and around all the bolt holes
5.) Bolt the new oil pan on using proper TORQUE SPECS, I think it's 15 ft. lbs or something, not sure



It's annoying, but something you'll have to learn when working on cars. Taking the extra time to use a torque wrench beats the extra couple hours +/- of removing a bolt with a broken head.

--

It may not leak right away, maybe never since the FIPG probably has it glued on and it's only 1 bolt. Over time though, the seal may break free since the bolt isn't holding it or crack and you may experience leakage.

calm down, are you leaking right now? probably not. all you have to do is drill out the old bolt. the easy out is pretty easy to use. once you get the old bolt out, just put a new one in. you are not going to break the seal of FIPG thats in there.

I'm surprised you broke the bolt head and not strip the thread first.
