    I am in the process of trying to get the O2 sensor nuts off. They are beyond rusted. I can get an 11mm on and really torque it, but it is SO rusted. I have been hitting the nuts with PB Blaster everyday, for the last week. I am not sure of what my options are for getting the nuts off, b/c it looks like I can't destroy the stud. Any real time help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Get a nut splitter. You may also try some heat.

    Dan,

    Thanks for the help. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your help in overnighting those 02 sensors. We leave for the midwest tomorrow morn at 5am, so hopefully heat and/or a nutsplitter will work.

    THANKS AGAIN, DAN.
