Question about 1997 Mazda Protege
The nut that you unscrew to drain the oil, for oil changing. It is stripped to hell, and i have tried "Gator Grip", fairly large plyer, and typical wrench,
Is it stripped in the hole? or is just the head is stripped? If it is stripped in the hole then you should put a srewdriver or prybar under and work it out. If just the head is stripped and you can not get it with vise grips then you should take it to a shop where they could weld a good nut onto the head of yours. After it is welded AND cool just undo it with the proper size wrench.

Use vice grips they lock on tight or a pipe wrench [plumbers] as the harder you pull the tighter they grip!
Remember its anti clockwise to undo the plug!
& somtimes its a good trick to tighten the nut just to break the toque seal! then it can be undone!
