    But trying to put more torque to it might/will break the bond. Old Air Force trick.

    Besides...when that 16 year old pit monkey spins it off without a problem, you'll have a great seat in the "Failed Hall Of Fame".

    I did that when I was a diesel mechanic. Using an impact, tighten it before loosening it. :) Worked a lot of the time.

    as a mechanic, I hate people like you..they knowingly come in with a problem, then make us do it, then what do ya know, were buying them an oil pan..dont be a jerkoff and have them be liable for YOUR fuckup, doing the last oil change.

    When was the last time you changed your oil?

    Sounds like you need some time at the gym to build up them muscles. :eek::p

    This is the main reason I decided to not be a mechanic. People that only bring their car in after they screw it up. I do all my work, unless I can't afford the tools to do it right (transmission, front end on my old bug, alignment, tires) If I'm bringing my truck in it's never because I screwed it up and I wanted to have the shop take the blame. I stripped the drain plug threads on my VW GTI (aluminum pan) and ended up replacing the $450 oil pan my self, wouldn't have even considered screwing over a shop. If I did have a problem where I needed a pro to fix it I would be straight forward with them.

    It's all in my head at the moment...
    It's your Mom's suggestion....Have your Mom take it to get the oil changed. Then you can blame 2 people.

    Take it to the dealer, the quick lube the service depts offer are about the same money as a jiffy type place. Explain to them the problem. Yours will not be the first stuck drain plug they have seen. If the jiffy place strips it out, they are going to band-aid without your knowledge just to get you the hell out of their shop and take that chance you'll be back.

    If it does strip out and you drive down the road and the oil "falls" out and you end up blowing the engine, think of the time wasted with your truck down, plus you may get them to replace the motor but it won't be with a shiney new crate motor.

    Maybe Mom is stronger, hand her the wrench. Are you using just a box end wrench, ratchet and socket, deep or shallow? It's all about leverage. You'll get more leverage standing on your feet with the truck on a lift than you (or Mom) on your/her back in the driveway.

    Don't set up and blame the poor unsuspecting slob. What if your Mom tags your truck in the driveway some night unbeknown to you. She clams up and you don't notice it till a day or two later. You approach her on this and she just shrugs her shoulders and shakes her head. Same thing.

    All actions have consequences. Think about it. I'm assuming you have something to do with the fire service looking at your name. Have any strapping lads at the firehouse to help? Any tools there? Think, Think, Think.

    Ditto... That's BS trying to F someone over because of your incompetence. Even Jiffy lube shouldn't get screwed like that. My moms Jeep's plug was put in by friggin Arnold Shwarzenegger the last time I changed it for her. I just put the breaker bar on it and cranked it off. Use some muscle. Get the wrench to hold on the bolt and use your foot to turn it. But trying to shove the problem off to someone else then make them be liable is F'ed up dude.......

    Karma will get you in the end if you do that.

    That's a general *rule of thumb* for your oil filter.

    Ok thisis real simple.

    Go down to the dealer and buy a new drain plug, because your gonna fawk up yours. No way around it.

    Then Lock a pair Visegrips [​IMG] to the drainplug. And I mean tight as all get out. If you cant break it loose hit it with a hammer for bit. Also you can tap the plug a little too, this will help break it loose.

    The Vise grips will screw up the plug but will get the old one out.

    The vise grip method is a good one. If a box wrench will still grip good, try that with a 3' length of pipe over it to improve leverage. That is how I remove calipers on my Taco and my dad's taco. Mot sure why but those bolts seem to tighten to ungodly tightness overtime. if that doesn't work. use a bigger hammer. I use a 10lb sledge. a slow heavy swing will apply force over a longer amount of time than a fast less heavy swing. Under your truck swinging a hammer will be a pain in the ass. Either way buy a new drain plug and replace the bad one.

    If all else fails take it stiffy lube with that new drain plug and crush washer and explain whats happened. They'll be able to get it off, and if you have a nice shiny plug for them they won't put the bad one back in.

    Only if you strip the threads would a new oil pan be a possible need.

    Remember...leverage
