"Righty Tighty, Lefty Loosey" You are talking about the oil pan drain plug, right? Was the plug to tight to start with, normally a impact gun is NOT used on that plug as it is to easy to strip out. If that happens, you'll need to get an oversized oil pan plug.

Get socket on it perfectly, and give a sharp rap on the socket handle. I've had it hard to free sometimes, too. You have to "crack" it.

Does everybody talk that differently in Alaska? I could understand Sarah Palin when she was on the tube.

If the bolt was that tight, you didn't strip it. The moron that put it on did. Probably had arms like an ape. Hooligan is right; you'll probably need an oversized plug or worse, you'll have to drill a new bigger hole.

The first time I changed the oil in my wife's Cruiser I ran into a stuck bolt. I eventually got it off with enough swearing but the head of the bolt twisted and bent a little bit and is, to this day, still stuck on the socket head. I replaced it with an aftermarket bolt that had a larger head and haven't had a problem since.

I LOL'ed.

Things are perty down here in Georgia too man... I remember when I moved down here from NY and visited my first Waffle House...

I was like "What's this over here?"

The guy says "You've never heard of grits?"

I was like "Sure, I've heard of grits, I've just never actually seen a grit before."

I'm pretty sure he talks like that cause he's a Satanist Hillbilly. Or should I call it a Snowbilly.
The only reason I say that is cause he lives in Alaska, hence the snow part
The billy part comes from the fact that in his picture he is holding what looks like a fully-automatic AK-47. Illegal in the United States.
He looks like he's sitting in a lawn chair and he is using a milk crate as a table.
The satanist part comes from just the fact that his name is demon. (Devil) and the 666 obviously a satanist. lol

I'm just kidding.

First mistake is using a socket. You should use a rachet wrench. They never slip and work well.
