Usually you would replace the gasket just so you don't get leaks. Especially since the old one is pretty old by now. Gasket is only 14 bucks I think.

Find the nearest metric or standard size socket and hammer it over the bolt so it'll have a force fit. Turn it with a breaker bar. Jiffy Lube should do it or pay for it since they were the last ones to work on it.

Iono, I keep my receipts. I had g00dyear crossthread two lug nuts on separate occasions. The first time they were really nice about it, but the second time they gave me some crap about how they torque (or crossthread in this case) all their stuff to the manufacturer's spec.

lol i thought someone would say that he had a recipt, which means nothing...sure it says they changed the oil, but thats it. even if dave says well they were the last ones to touch it! still no proof... how does jiffy lube know they touched it last?

It's below or at the oil change interval with dirty oil in there. That being said, ya gotta fight, fer yer right, to get yer moneyz back. Enough complaining/filing with the BBB will get most large companies to come around.

Another option, a muffler shop can weld a bolt to the drain bolt, then crank it out. Muffler shop probably won't want to do the actual removal though, since they usually don't have the facilities for an oil change. Might be able to get them to break it loose with an impact wrench without actually removing the plug, then go home and fix it. And, don't let those teenagers under your car again! All their claim of tightening to manu specs means is they have a book with the specs they can refer to when someone complains. In reality, they crank on it till it won't turn anymore, then they put the wrong oil in and leave the oil cap off.
