Angry Rusty and Sticky Bolts

All the bolts on my exhaust manifold are SUPER rusty, and it seems to be impossible to unscrew them. And if the rusty isn't bad enough it seems all of the hard to reach blots behind the engine are properly stuck and it's getting really frustrating trying to get them out. Does somebody have any tips and tricks they could share with me on how to remedy these problems?

Spray WD-40 on the bolts/nuts and let them soak for an hour or so, then try again. The WD-40 should break up the rust a little.

That too ^^ .. The reason I said WD-40, is cos chances are better that a household has WD-40, than anything else. In that case it would be readily available.

A small blow torch if you have one. Just be very careful of any fuel lines. Shouldn't have any that are in the way, just something to be cautious of.
