get a socket that is slightly smaller than the one you are using. use a hammer and tap it on the plug as far as you can get it. then try to loosen it.be careful not to bend up your oil pan.

First, buy a new drain plug. Use a Vise-grip pliers to remove the old plug. Make sure you use a crush gasket on the new plug and only tighten to the correct amount. If you're unsure, have your oil changed by a mechanic.
