The car fell off of the ramps

I cant find half of my ratchet set

and I cant get the damn drain plug off and I'm the only one who changes the oil !

not to mention I'm still hurting from my injury at work and I have to go back to work on friday wh ich will make it worse ( not that working under the car helps though)

chris, use vise grips to get the plug off if its rounded off. pick up a new plug at autozone, and a socket to fit that plug.

So, how did it fall off the ramps, did they collapse, it what happened? I use ramps for all my cars if possible (for oil changes, and anything that doesn't require the wheels to come off) and I am a fan of them over jackstands when possible.

stupid me wasnt paying attention all my fault on the ramp thing i drove up too far - duh

The bolt is rounded off, and the vise grips didnt help or any other wrench ...

Its wierd cause I always change the oil myself

cool beans thanks

Here's the latest just got back from the shop they charged me $20 to get the plug out and change the oil and filter and grease the front end

the said the car needs the upper ball joints and a serpentine belt soon but every thing else looks good

I didnt know the car has a plastic gas tank? or so the doofus said

what a pain glad it s all done

I figure I got the oil and filter for free (giftcard)

and the oil change and for them to remove the plug was $20

so I guess I sort of broke even



I still cant believe I had to go through that much stress
