comment Stubborn oil drain plug caused by hot oil?
The ice trick didn't help. I have a feeling that the repair shop I took my car in for the service over torqued it. I think I'll take my car in to a shop to get it removed and also have them install a fumoto oil drain valve to avoid this situation in the future.

No it isn't. I've done it before but it is being particularly stubborn this time. I was wondering if I heated it up too much and causing the stubbornness.

I'm using an adjustable wrench and it is stripping the plug. I've also tried using a hex socket with no luck. I'll give your suggestion about cooling the plug a try - just place some ice next to the plug?
