For the first time ever I’ve managed to shear off a bolt in its hole. Specifically the top right valve cover bolt. I bought an extractor but because of the way it sheared I cant get it to bite, or any other drill bit for that matter. Any tips on removing this thing?

are there any threads sticking out on the under side of the threads that you can grab maybe with vice grips to turn?

Post some pics.
If it's small enough that you can't extract it then you'll probably have to suck it up and drill the sucker out then re-tap the hole.
Seems like a nice excuse to get a half-decent tap-and-die set to me ?
