One thing is that it does not sound stripped. It could be damaged, which can be repaired usually. Have you tried a 1/4" drive wrench? I say this because they are usually longer and will give your more leverage. If that is not enough then find a metal tube that will fit over the wratchet and use that. How ever you do it try to me smooth with the application of pressure so you only use what you need. I hope you have already started soaking it in wd-40 or something like that. I also find it handy to grab ahold of a jack stand, or something, and use both arms for force. The best of luck to you!nasriaz said:I tried it both ways, what I mean by that is: This afternoon I drove about 12 miles round trip to get the oil and filter. So the car was hot when I initially tried to remove the plug. Its now 5 hrs later and cold and still can't get the bloody thing off.
Did you fish around in the opening for damage? How easily did the bolt go back in after this?nasriaz said:Finally got the ba$tard guy off!!! I tried damaged bolt removers to no avail. Finally was down to the chizzel but then I was really worried about damaging the oil pan. I was at sears buying the tools when I went to the automotive dept and talked one of the techs to help me get it open. They put it on the lifter and it took 3 guys huddled around trying to figure out how to get it open. They used a pipe wrench and some other bolt breaking device and it finally came out. Thanks to all that helped.
