Andy, WD40 (Water Displacement formula 40) never works for rusted bolts and 
nuts.  PBblaster is good and GM sells a product in their parts dept. that is 
used for loosening oxy sensors that I've had good luck with as it is a 
and contains an acid.  The only fool proof way is to heat the fastner to red 
hot with a propane torch.  If its in wood, then it must be cut off, drilled 
out or grind.  Nut crackers and easy outs don't work and easy outs will some 
times break leaving you with an even greater problem..........
