    Sump plug shouldn't be an issue. Just crack it loose with a ratchet handle and then undo it by hand when you can. I use one of these....



    ....to catch and store the oil until next time I go to the local waste disposal site.

    If your sump plug points backwards then obviously you have to position the oil pan relative to where the oil is going to arc out to. Also best to warm the engine up a bit first so that the oil flows out quicker/smoother and you get as much of it out as you can.

    A piece of advice which stood me in good stead for 20 odd years,before you do anything else don,t forget to REPLACE THE SUMP PLUG LOL as its been known by some,me included to forget to screw it back,result a big pool of oil on the garage floor and 20 quid down the drain.
