Get a vice grip on there and try to loosen it if you can.

If not Sears or any hardware store sells extractors and bolt removers which usually work with any drill.

By chance are you working on a VW?

Try cutting into the bolt with a cold chisel.This will make a groove to get a grip on by tapping the bolt to the your way around tapping left until loose enoughthe grooves only need to be shallow,and of course dont miss the cold chisel and belt the timing cover.fixed the same problem last week this way.

squirt a bit of Kroil on it and tap away.
That stuff is the bee's knees!
