Default Oil Change Problems

I just went to change the oil in my 2000 Ford Ranger 3.0L and wouldn't you know it the oil plug on the drain pan won't loosen at all, even with a cheater bar. I am willing to bet dollars to doughnuts that it was torqued on at the dealership with an impact wrench. After an hour of frustration and cursing in the Carolina heat I gave up. I will find a shop and let them do his first oil change and I will make sure they don't use an impact wrench to re-tighten it.
