Exclamation Seized Spark Plugs help......

I was changing the plugs in my 03 sentra today and #2 and #3 are seized. I tried wd-40 and let it penetrate for hr and still wouldn't budge. I tried driving around for a while but was warned not to try removing seized plugs froman aluminum engine because it will ri the threads out.

Any suggestions, tricks?

That is ture. You can destroy the sparkplug threads. but you can try using a product called PB Blaster. It's like WD-40 but about 100 times stronger. Also you can heating the area up CAREFULLY so not to damage the aluminum. You can remove any seized bolt if you just think about what you're doing and dont try to strongarm it. Prime example, I have a customer come in last week with a 2008 loaded to the hills WRX STI who decided to use grunt force to remove the remove the head bolts and snapped THREE of them because he wasn't thinking and had the ratchet goining the wrong way know he has a 2500 dollar service bill!!

Update

I won the battle finally!

The problems was that the dome cover was leaking and caused the plugs to seize. I suggest if you have oil on your plugs to take care of it ASAP by doing the gaskets and spark plug tube seals.
