Oil Change Help Needed

So I bought a 2007 GC and went in to do an oil change on it and found this...Postimage.org / gallery - 20141108 172739, 20141108 172749, 20141108 172756
No issues with the filter but wow, I don't even know where to start with this drain plug. I don't have any fancy tools (welder, air compressor, etc), is there anything I can do to get that thing out of there or should I take it somewhere?


Thanks.

Re: Oil Change Help Needed

So you're saying there is no way to get that plug out of there?

Re: Oil Change Help Needed

I had something similar with a diff plug once. I went to an exhaust shop (was closest by) and he welded a bolt to the plug. I would get a new plug first, so you can install that one afterwards.

I ended up taking it to the mechanic. He welded on a bolt and loosened it for me for $10. Thanks for the help!
