I don't know how they all compare in terms if effectiveness, but the PB Blaster is some NASTY smelling stuff. AND in turn when you use it, YOU become some nasty smelling stuff. Use at your own risk. :-)

For the homemade concoction what would be a good ATF to use? I don't think they're all the same.
I've had good luck using Liquid wrench penetrating spray lubricant which has worked very good in various applications, including some EGR valve bolts which are purported to be difficult to remove. I did try acetone + Ford ATF on some exhaust manifold heat shield bolts but can't really say if it was any better or worse than LW.

Replying to Martin's DIY penetrant, I have been told WD is just kerosene, or diesel fuel.

As far as brand name penetrants, I usually use WD, but prefer Seafoam brand "Deep Creep" (not in video) but it is ~$11.00 for a spray can, where as WD is ~6 bucks for a can.

I don't care much for the WD squirter nozzle either since after it gets tossed around in my tool bucket a few thousand times, it becomes pretty much usable on a half full can. (service tech work).

When you say wd, do you mean regular wd-40 or one of their new wd40 penetrating oils? Because regular wd40 isn't really a penetrant. : )

WD-40 is a petrochemical cleaner/carrier along with light oil. The MSDS can be found online.

Based on a recommendation from a very experienced engineer friend of mine I use Kano Kroil. Over the past couple decades I've used it on some extremely stubborn bolts & screws and it has always worked extremely well. I let them soak for 2 or 3 days and Kroil breaks the bond. Here's the flavor I use. Ed
