      Drain the engine oil.
      Go fishing with your telescopic magnet through the drain plug hole, chances are good the stud is just laying there on the bottom of the pan.

      The "WD" in WD-40 stands for "Water Displacement".
      WD-40 is NOT a lubricant, it's a solvent, somewhat of a penetrant.

      For the insides of switches, use electrical contact cleaner/lubricant.
