You might be able to get away with just riding it.

But, if you started to pull the threads out of the case, it is only a matter of time before it leaks. I would take the 10 minutes and fix it right.

A time-sert will work perfectly in that location and give you a permanent repair.

If it's an '06 or later, nobody's going to fix it in 10 minutes.
