It sounds wrong, but the best solution is to take it to a dealer for an oil change. The cost isn't that much (often, cheaper than the oil change stores out there), and they'll get that plug out. They will then put a new plug in if needed; yes, you'd have to pay for it, but you'd have to buy one anyway if the old one was destroyed.


Try something like this. They've worked for me. (


You have three options; work on the bolt to remove it (possibly drilling it out, etc), remove the entire sump and order a replacement (they are surprisingly inexpensive) or change the oil with a pela style suction pump that extracts the old oil without removing the sump plug.
