Stripping it? Do you mean your rounding the head of the plug? If that is the case, you'll need to use vise-grips or channel loc pliers to remove it.

Take a hammer and pound the plug as if you were pounding it into the drain hole, that will help to loosen the crud that is prevent its removal. Use good judgment when hammering the plug, don't cave in the oil pan.

Once you get it out, buy a new plug to put back in

Testimonial: "Thanks. I finally got the vise-grips set hard enough to withstand the force of a hammer, and finally got 'er off."

Do I need a mechnic for changing oil in my chevi


No. The oil is very easy to change. All you need is a filter wrench and a 15 mm. socket, and a drain pan. Get under the truck and the oil filter is right there and the drain plug is in the oil pan. Drain the oil first, then remove the oil filter with the filter wrench. Take your finger and dip it in the oil and put a film of oil on the new oil filter gasket. Then install the new oil filter. Once you install the new oil filter, put the drain plug back in. Then put 5 quarts of new oil in the oil fill.

Can't locate reserve oil drain plug on 1994 Ford E350


It only has 1 oil pan which is call a dual resreve. One oil plug is a the bottom of the pan the other is at the front of the oil pan. Look at the front of the oil pan for the other drain plug. Make sure on how many quarts of oil it takes. ( I know 5.0 take 5 quarts including oil filter. But then again its a van double check)
