Oh yes . ATF is a great product for releasing stuff .
Didn't know the acetone helped , certainly will give it a try .
Thx for sharing !
Another trick with ATF is to add it to the engine oil before the oil is
drained when servicing a car .
With the oil level at minimum , top it off to maximum with atf and then take
the car for
a half hour drive . No heavy loads or high revs , just to get it warm and
make the oil circulate .
Then drain the oil and you'll be surprised of all the stuff pouring out of
that drain plug .
Don't forget to also change the oil filter .
Merry r x-mas to everyone
