Pro-Tip: Ditch the PB Blaster and get some of this.

So I've been wrenching and knuckle busting for around 5 years now and have always been using PB Blaster to help lubricate and break bolts loose.

Its never seemed to work that well at least in my opinion. The past couple years, I've been using something else that works PHENOMENALLY better.

Its called "Kano Kroil", this one being a non-spraying can. Aero Kroil is the aerosol one that sprays. The only downsides are how hard to find, and how expensive it is.

But this stuff is seriously ridiculous. Supposedly this is what most professional shops use. Leave this on a stuck bolt for 15 minutes and its like you never tightened it down in the first place. I've used it for exhaust manifold bolts, engine mounts, O2 sensors...it really works. I'd definitely recommend trying it out.

The big puddle under the diff is Kroil lol. Not a single bolt gave me trouble when I was pulling the diff.

Anyone else ever heard of or used it?

Thanks and happy wrenching,

I like PB blaster though...


I haven't been in too much of hurry lately so all of my difficult nuts and bolts have been getting plenty of soak time.
I've used better products in the past, but they were also difficult to find and slightly more expensive.

Where do you find Kroil?

I sell that where I work. Best stuff ever. The only bad thing is the lingering smell that it leaves. I used it when I put headers on and could smell that stuff for over a month every time I got in the car.

Lol I don't really mind the smell but it definitely lingers. You can order it direct from them or you can get it on Amazon surprisingly. It's really hard to find locally.

In my opinion its worth it though. I'd rather smell that for a month than break my exhaust manifold bolts lol

Never tried that stuff, but WD40 makes a newer product that works pretty well. Better than PB Blaster IMHO.

My dad swears by Kroil and has been using it for years. I think it's great, and definitely more effective than WD-40. Kano also makes a SiliKroil, that leaves behind a silicone lubricant, so parts aren't left "dry" like when using AeroKroil (which is just a penetrating oil).

I've demoted WD-40 to degreasing my tools...LOL.

My dad swears by it as well. Applied it to my exhaust manifold bolts that hadn't been removed for probably the life of the car, and after 15 minutes it was like they were never tightened...I'll have to try the silicone kind sounds like a good idea

Aerokroil does work really good. I would use WD40 over PB Blaster though. PB Blaster hasn't impressed

Funny to see all the posts about Dad's using Kroll.
My Dad was a Hydraulics Technician and Aircraft Maintenance Supervisor in the Air Force, and he swore by the stuff.
It's all we ever used working on cars and other projects together growing up, and what I use now too.
Really does work great

If people are looking for Aerokeoil the HVAC suppliers in most areas carry it or smaller hardware stores such as your local ACE hardware or Tru-Valu

Yup I use it all the time. But make sure you use it in a well ventilated area. It's bad to breathe.
