Even with a 18" breaker bar and 230lbs against it, it ain't budging....

May buy some freeze spray and try that immediately after it's been driven.

At least the drain plug will come right out.

Crap. I've been on this fill plug with an 18" pry bar a few times, and even with an impact. Both hot and cold. NOTHING.

Today I picked-up some stuff called Wurth Rost Off Ice. It is a freeze spray that can drop items to -40. I sprayed the plug, let it set for about 45 seconds. And then damned-near broke my face and leg because it broke-loose so easily. I braced to give it the shit and instead I can't tell you how amazingly easily it came out.

Sweet. Fresh fill of Redline D4 going in tomorrow. Along with a bit more anti-seize then I used last time.....

Nice to hear that something actually does what it is suppose to. Sounds like a good product, is there a shelf life listed on it?

Ok, stupid question, but couldn't you have just left the plug and filled through the dipstick (probably less satisfying, but is there any reason you can't)?
