I have never seen a left-hand thread on a Ford pan plug So going on that, counter-clockwise to loosen. Looking up from under, still righty-tighty - lefty - loosey. Or think peanut-butter jar, all the idioms

If you can't get the plug out, go to Auto-Zone , O'Rielly's or wherever and buy a kit you can stick a small tube down dipstick and hand pump the oil out

FordNut is correct.....Ford drain plugs are standard right hand threads. Turn it counter clock wise while looking at the hex head of the plug. Be careful, if you strip the threads you won't be happy.
