as you know, walmart messed up the threads on the pan.

i tried putting something behind it to pry it foward as i use a rachet, i can't get a knife or screwdriver behind there.

tomorrow im going to try vise grips,

do you guys have any suggestions?

breaker bar and a can of wd 40 also recomend leaving the car on the ground to loosen the thing because mine fell off one of the jack stands while my neighbor and i were attempting to loosen it...its a bitch to get off but dont give up

So is it just spining and not comming out? If you you could try a thin putty knife.
If you still cant get it out, remove the oil pan. You might have to replace it anyway. So I would have a junk yard pan waiting to be put in just incase.

im thinking about dropping the pan, but theres too much junk in the way :(

its not stuck, it moves freely clockwise and counter clockwise, so the break bar and wd40 wouldn't do it. thanks though!

any other suggestions?

Good move.

Even if you get that old plug out, you'll definitely need a new pan.

Learn your lesson about letting [email protected]$$ shops do your oil changes? ;)

Sorry I missed out on your original thread.
