    Yes some people do spray penetrant on a bolt like even the day before or longer especially if we know it’s gonna be a bitch to get loose. Think exhaust bolts.

    I didn't know that you could use brake fluid in place of wd40

    Fluid film is an awesome product but it’s not a penetrating oil. If it’s all ya got then sure but it’s a much better rust preventer and a waterproofing coating for things

    Really like the drilled and tapped plexiglass! Shows what would be the better choices.

    Whoever suggested measuring amount used was being pedantic. Yeah it would be the more "scientific" approach but when we're working on loose parts we just do like in the first video and apply till coated. If the first test were redone using a dropper I'm sure there would be no difference. And as seen here one of the products was so thick it would need more just to spread around. Anyway, good work and yeah let's see that seafoam vs liquid wrench showdown!

    I love this but it does make me wonder how different the tests would have been had the products been sprayed on a nut/bolt as the manufacturer intended. Some of those had a foaming action that could have pushed it further down the threads

    every mechanic knows the best is a custom mix of acetone and transmission fluid 50/50 mix does the job on just about anything

    Here's one I never knew about - comes from an old mechanic who used to build hotrods in the 50's: Real Wintergreen Oil! I saved my engine block with it! Warm the item up, put the oil in the seam, let it sit for a hour or so and then see if it's still stuck.

    It seemed like several of these rely on the foaming action. (Fluid film, for instance)

    I'd like to see that with the standard wd-40 and with the prolab PL-100

    when the can of stuff goes above about 4 bucks , thats when I say; "time to use a grinder and/or sawzall. I don't see spending a ton of money for bolt looseners. Also you can invest in a serious impact wrench that will last a long time. That being said , I wonder how those new "freezy" bolt looseners work compared to liquid wrench and sea foam?

    I would have liked to see how P.B. Blaster compared to the rest.

    Might be an idea to rig up some sort of jig to keep the wrench perpendicular to the nut face as this firstly ensures the torque being applied is used exclusively to undo the nut instead of overcoming the inevitable side force the wrench induces when used. Secondly, having a jig standardises each test. I used to calibrate torque wrenches and it was incredible the difference in readings when altering the human applied force.

    Hi, I would definitely recommend wearing latex gloves or similar.

    We use a product for aviation called Aerokroil. Unbelievable product as well as ACF50.

    Hello, I have been a long time user of PB Blaster for rust bolts and nuts, and I 100% stand by my product. It has always helped. I'd like to see a show-down between PB Blaster and Sea Foam. Thanks!

    Who is lazy enough to not wait for something to do its job right? If you want something quicker, then buy something quicker. But don't crap on something cause it didn't work in 15 seconds. If you want 15 second results buy PB BLASTER. Notice he didn't do the best product on the market even though it's cheaper than half the crap he tested

    I very much dislike WD-40, but I find it hard to believe it didn't beat control.

    Should try this with honda pro white graphite chain lube. I know it sounds like it wouldn't be a good choice, but I bet it would out perform all. I'm surprised the CRC didn't do better honestly. They make good stuff too.
