<SPAN class=cs_misspelled>==</SPAN> <SPAN class=cs_misspelled>==</SPAN> Use a good quality <SPAN class=cs_misspelled>pentrating</SPAN> lubricant and be patient. You may to spray some on and let it set it and then spray some more on. Use a flare nut wrench to avoid rounding off all of the corners of the nut. If that does not work, you can resort to the <SPAN class=cs_misspelled>vise-grips.</SPAN>

It has been my <SPAN style="POSITION: static" textContent="null">experience</SPAN> that if you start with <SPAN style="POSITION: static" textContent="null">vise-grips</SPAN> and apply enough pressure on each flat to dislodge the threads from wheel <SPAN style="POSITION: static" class=cs_misspelled>cylinder (do</SPAN> not attempt to turn fitting at this point) then when you clamp on the last flat and turn the <SPAN style="POSITION: static" textContent="null">fitting</SPAN> it will come out very <SPAN style="POSITION: static" textContent="null">easily.</SPAN>

Rusted connectors on a vehicle's battery could be the cause of a car that won't start. The process for cleaning these connectors can be detailed in full on wikiHow.

Could be from several sources such as master cylinder, wheel cylinders, calipers, brake hoses and rusted brake lines. All of which can be rebuilt or replaced. Have it looked at as soon as possible!
