New to this forum and looks like this topic is pretty much dead I must give praise where it is due. Wanted to say many a thanks to all in this thread and BlueBee for relaying his fix for the snapped oil drain plug. Just did the same thing today, I wasn't even using a torque wrench, just clicked the ratchet one too many times. I thought I was going to have to tow to a shop to get it removed, but the #4 spiral got it right out... thank goodness. Might have to check this forum out a little more.

Much appreciated again!
