STOCK OIL DRAIN BOLT

SO I DECIDED TO CHANGE THE OIL MYSELF THIS TIME, BUT FOR AS WE ALL KNOW, FOR EVERY SEEMINGLY THOUGHTLESS MECHANICAL CHORE THERE ARE ALWAYS LITTLE INSIGNICANT THINGS THAT ARE AN UTTER PAIN IN THE . IN MY CASE, IT'S THE OIL DRAIN BOLT THAT CANNOT BE LOOSENED. LAST OIL CHANGE WAS DONE BY A SHOP AND I FRANKLY DONT KNOW WHAT AMOUNT OF TORQUE THEY USED TO TIGHTEN IT UP... BUT IT WAS DEFINETELY TOO MUCH.
SO, WHAT DO YOU USE TO LOOSEN UP THE BOLT IN THIS CASE? IM STARTING TO GET SERIOUSLY FRUSTRATED.

clearly an oil change is over your head, take it back to the dealer.

and if you dont have the RIGHT tools then dont do it.

clearly, it is right now. I've ran out of patience! anyone knows some cheap shop where they can do it? I already bought the oil and filter.

I think I'll go borrow some tools first.

Too far, sorry. I'd come help but I got shizzle to take care of tonight.
Maybe there's a member who would like to help.
Good luck.
