    Yes it's supposed to work far better than penetrating oils, as I don't think you have to let it soak. Heat it up, get the wax in there, and go to town.

    I may try to get an instructional video made next time I have a rusted bolt that breaks.

    Yes, he said melting just any regular candle should be good, or just the straight wax.

    i think the dealer is blowing smoke up your keister (sp)... have another shop look at the truck. as others have said, you will need a bank loan to get all that work done. i highly doubt the truck needs all that work...

    they don't call them stealerships for nothing...

    most dealerships will give u a worst case cinario price, but it seems that it would have been useful to give u the other end of the spectrum price also ($450 for broken bolt replacement and $1000 if we have to send it to a machine shop) either way it sounds a little pricy on all items u listed. You should ask the service manager if new underwear comes with all this work, because if i had to pay that bill, i would probably crap myself.
