Heat the bung that the sensor screws into enough to remove the sensor without getting it red hot. A big wrench helps too.

Try a mixture of 30% acetone (nail polish remover) and vegetable oil. Keep it capped when not in use so the acetone doesn't evaporate. https://www.engineeringforchange.org/news/2012/08/14/how_to_make _penetrating_oil.html
