Default Ratchet Size

Hello,

I'm about to pick up a couple rachet heads...(don't want the expense of
a full set)
What would be the size needed to remove the oil drain plug in a four
cylinder Camry 99' LE? Don't have any of the necessary documentation
around me unfortunately...

It's probably a 19mm (could be 17, also. Get one of each?)

I sent the last msg before I tought of a quick test. If you have a 3/4",
the tolerance is just about that of a 19mm. Try the 3/4 for fit only,
don't put a lot of pressure cause it may strip the nut. If it fits, you
need a 19, if not, then 17.

99% of the nuts and bolts on a Toyota are 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, 17mm, 19mm,
21mm, and 32mm.

I agree. The most critical ones are the 8mm, 10mm, 12mm and 14mm.

My 97 Camry LE 4 cyl is 14mm....
I think you mean sockets, not rachet heads....
Socket sets can be had very cheaply or
you can spend more and get some guaranteed
forever for more money... I still have a set of
tools from Sears Craftsman I bought almost
30 years ago.

Might want to pickup socket set with metric and sae sockets.
Should be able find one for around $20-30.
I will cost you more in long run to buy each size separately.
Or just buy a adjustable wrench.

Sockets will grip the head of a bolt or screw better than adjustable or
open-ended wrenches.
