Tip & How-To about 1992 Mercury Grand Marquis
I was on vacation and really did not have any tools with me. My car was operated in the Rustbelt and I usually oil the wheel studs at rotation time. But this time the car sat in the garage all Winter and I put miles on my 4x4 instead.
I had a flat on my car during my Spring vacation and took off the lugnuts to change the tire and the wheel would not come off. I put several lugbolts back on and tried dropping the weight of the car on the tire. Still stuck. Then I put a Fixaflat solution into the tire and it still was too low to drive and leaking. I went over curbs, off curbs and then removed the lugnuts after jacking up the car again. Still stuck.
I looked in my trunk for good ole "WD". There was none. All I could find was a spray can of "Cutter Insect Repellant". I sprayed the insect repellant around the wheel and one tap and the wheel fell off. So not only is Cutter a decent insect repellant, but it also removes rusted parts.
