try soaking it in some lubricant like WD-40 or whatever u use then put a pipe over the wrench for extra leverage. thats about all you can do. i would not recommend using heat

I would heat the plug up with a propane torch and then let it cool for 10 minutes. Do it a couple more times. Then loosen it.
