I have a Focus Wagon (2003 2.3L) that I haven't changed the oil on myself yet. I can't find the proper size wrench in my kit. Anyone know offhand?

wrench size for oil drain plug 2002 Ford Focus zetek

the wrench size of the oil pain drain plug on my Ford Focus 2002 station
wagon is 17mm. I did three things wrong in changing the oil that
you might learn from: 1) get a fresh gasket (washer) for the oil pan drain plug:
auto zone has copper gaskets (and others) in packets of three 2) don't
over-torque the oil pan drain plug 3) put in four quarts of oil: I
put in five quarts and it was 3/4 quarts too much (I had to drain
the excess as it read way high on the dipstick) 4) don't overtighten the oil filter
