15 mm and get a GOOD wrench like a box end SNAP ON brand. Trust me on this. My snap on removed a stripped drain plug on my neighbors truck. Yes, they ARE that good.

Exactly- I tried my first ever oil change with an adjustable wrench, and it wouldn't budge. I bought a good quality, 12-point 15 mm socket, and it works every time.
