Default I havent changed my oil in a year.

I tried to get my oil screw off and rounded the bolt. I need help. Do I turn it left to get it off? I need to fix this quickly. Please don't flame, I am not in the mood for it. Dont have nothing nice to say, keep it to yourself.

Make sure the oils good and warm.. cuz theres going to be a lot of crap that needs to come out... Then make sure you have some good vice grips or ROBO grips... With vice grips you can get a box end wrench on the end for more leverage..

With a problem like yours, if you cant get it off, go to a jiffy lube 9.99 (includes oil/filter) and your out the door.

Easy for them, They have a lift, or a tunnel. They will just take an impact with a special reversed cutter thing in it...
