Question about 2003 Chevrolet Malibu
No i dont think so but what i used to do was use the starter motor with my big snap on bar wedged in but do not do this as the crank may not have a keyway and its only held tight by the pulley and if you attempt it the old way you will crunch the valves ,now there is a special tool that fits to a starter motor bolt after taking it out and it looks like a ringear in reverse .Now if you dont have one of these then what i do is look for a hole in the bellhousing showing the timing mark and then i jam it up with a big old screwdriver in the ringear if i cannot get into the ring gear then i drill a 3/8th hole in the bellhousing to line up with the ring gear and then put my screwdriver in their and get willing assistant on the big bar with a tube on the end ,same as tighteneing it up i put a jack on the end of the extension bar then assistant can pull it up to at least 120lbs and the jack takes the strain of the turning motion ,failure to di it this tight will result in it coming loose on the motorway and the valves going bang and maybe a piston as well
