The throw out bearing finally went out in my '03 Mach 1. I'm in the process of pulling off the mid-pipe and trans crossbar. I tried the trans crossbar first and the bolts absolutely will not budge. I applied WD-40 and used a cheater bar. The socket extension I was using actually bent. I moved on to the forward exhaust bolts. Again, I sprayed WD-40 and used a cheater bar. The Husky socket cracked. I'm hoping they're simply stubborn bolts, but here is my concern... I bought the car from a dealer, but the previous owner did not take care of it. I had to get the engine rebuilt after having it a few months to start with. (125k miles) When I started with today's project, I noticed the driveshaft bolts weren't even finger tight. The list goes on. My point in mentioning this is since the engine was recently pulled for the rebuild, these bolts were loosened as recently as 2 months ago. I'm wondering if someone could have used some type of thread lock liquid, or maybe impacted the hell out of these bolts. I'm trying to avoid renting an impact wrench. I'm not sure I could reach the exhaust bolts with it if I did. I'm going to the store now to get some liquid wrench. Anyone have any suggestions?
