I started ratcheting the first one in and it was half way in not even and it snapped I thought ahhhh tf is this what do I do now?? I thought and I thought maybe if I torque the second one down a little more it would maybe be drivable if I can rig the broken side too and then the other bolt went snap because I tightened it too much damn I have pictures of what it looks like any help negative or positive would be well appreciated.

Know what would help others help you? what/where bolt was broken

Depending on where it is will be a big factor on how you fix the situation

and if you have pictures as you say, why not post them? just saying you have them doesn't do/mean anything

Assuming your bolt broke under "normal conditions". Then, get yourself an "easy-out" and follow instructions to remove it.

Then, depending how badly you damage the treads, you have the following (2) options:

1. If you damage less than 1/3rd of the threads - use thread chaser (to clean threads) and a longer bolt (if allowed).
2. If you damage more than 1/3rd of the threads - use a heli-coil kit (read instructions) to re-thread the hole.

If its inside your engine the above method may contaminate your oil - NOT good.
