FORD RANGER AUTO PARTS PROBLEM

1994 Ford Ranger • 64,000 miles

4 cyl std shift no a/c no 4wd
truck sitting for 6-7 yrs. Getting it ready for son to drive. Oil-pan drain plug not loosening normally. Plug is a little bunged-up due to trying to remove. (I filed bungs off)
so-far. Using 6-point 1/2 drive w/breaker-bar gives no help.
question: need suggestions on how to remove. More torque? Air-gun? Judicious application of heat? PB breaker?

Use a chiesel and a hammer to loosen then replace it when you get it out.

Try penetrating oil first then maybe some heat from a propane torch but not a lot if you heat with propane try taping around drain plug with a small hammer all around it. Then try a 6 point socket it should come off. You can get anew plug when you get the old oneoff at a ford dealer don't use the ones that auto parts sell. Also get the gasket as you'll need that as well.
