    Yes, it is 24mm.

    Yes, I have had them 'freeze' in there...

    The wonders of the blue wrench will never cease...

    Good luck!

    the key is to always use a 6 point socket not a 12point........that is once you get the old jiffy lube moron buggered up plug out and get a new one in(which ONLY you will remove.....right? ;)

    Nice trick to removing those stinkers is to weld a nut on there or grind a straight slot for one of those socket mount screw drivers or the hand held impact driver(motor cycle type). I ended up grinding my 6 point socket flat for a good bite.

    It is a 24 mm or a 15/16" also works. The thread is a 18x1.50mm.
    I weld a lugnut to the wasted plug. The tapered end of the lugnut makes for great weld penetration.
