Re: Favorite penetrating oil that DOESN'T STINK!

yep, be careful wiht penetrating oil- a little goes a long way. you don't need to immerse whatever you are attempting to unstick in a vat of the stuff. You don't want to get anywhere near transimmission seals- they don;'t like each other.

Penetrating oil doesn't like to work alone- to get the best results, give it some help. Brush all of the loose rust off the parts to be unstuck. Spray a shot, have a cup of coffee, come back, wrench on it. spray it with another shot. if it's still stuck, spray it with another shot, leave it overnight, spray it again in the morning, wrench it again in the afternoon.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
