Sounds like a real personal problem. Are you sure you're in the right forum?

Okay try the good ol' Liquid Wrench. Let it penetrate a while then tap it a few times to lossen things (hopefully). A little heat could help too but not right after the LW a fire would be much worse than any frozen bolts.

I always found that giving them a liberal spray of penetrating oil and, if that hasn't loosened them up, use a breaker bar and a 6 pt. socket and give it a couple of shots w/ a hammer... If by then a bolt hasn't come off for me I get mad and break out the Dremel tool or the nut cracker... Bye bye bolt!

Don't shoot me, but GM markets a penetrating lube called "Heat Valve" in the parts dept which works really awesome. I also am partial to CRC Breakaway too.

Impact wrench and 6 point sockets. Can we say more power? If you know how to use it heat from a torch is good too! (propane isn't hot enough).

The Navy here in San Diego uses generic "oil of wintergreen" (available at your local pharmacy) as a penetrant on bolts and nuts that are corroded by sea water. Try it. I have, and it really works. Give it time to soak thru and use multiple applications. Then the tap, tap, tap method really helps. A lot of taps works better than a few bangs. Good Luck.
