    It is 14mm socket or wrench any parts store or Sears will have it. Be sure to replace the oil drain plug sal as well. The part number is 9043012028 .

    The 14mm socket will work on removing the nuts holding the pan, but the drain plug appears to require a hex type wrench. I can't locate any other plug under the pan that would use a socket or wrench.
