You may need to get a special crank pulley tool for Honda/Acura. Or you can use an old crank pulley belt and hold it down with a small monkey wrench or something. Then crack the nut counter-clock wise.

remove the large bolt at the center of the crank pully and the bolts on the smaller pully and the warer pump pully put jack under oil pan, remove front upper engine mount and lower the jack this will allow you to remove the timing belt cover and then pry off the pully with a large screw driver

Need to change timming belt 1997 geo tracker

TIMING BELT CHANGE You should have some mechanical skills before attempting any engine maintenance! These are basic instructions, and you must knoe what you removed, when, and what order so you can reinstall them in order. First, you have to remove everything in the way! You need to remove the Fan, clutch, and shroud, pump pully & drive belts. Next, you need to remove the Crank Pully:

1. Crank Pully Bolt 2. Crank Pully 3. Center Bolt 4. 5mm Hex drive (used to remove pully bolts) Once the fan stuff, and pully(s) are removed, then you need to remove the Timing Belt cover:

Once the cover is removed, you will need to loosen the adjusting nut and pully bolt on the Belt Tensioner:
A. Adjust Nut B. Pully Bolt C. TENSIONER PULLY Once the the Adjust Nut, and Pully bolt are loose, move the pully as far towards the water pump as possible.
Then, you can slip the timing belt from the sprockets. Check the tensioner for roughness and excess play! DO NOT MOVE THE CAM OR CRANK SPROCKETS! IF you do, then you will have to line up the Crank and Cam for piston number one at Top Dead Center before placing the new timing belt on! Note the timing marks on the crank and camshaft sprockets. IF YOU MUST! Allign the Cam and Crank at piston#1, Top Dead Center before removing the belt. Each sprocket has a small hole, with a line through it, and there is a small groove or "V" it alligns with on the engine. Now, once the timing belt is off, look at your new timing belt. Older belts use the Squared off teeth, while new ones have the rounded teeth. Make sure you have the correct belt for your sprockets! Never reinstall a belt that is in questionable condition. BELT WEAR CONDITIONS
If there are Arrows on the belt, they must be pointing to the RIGHT when you put the new belt on the sprockets. If there isn't one, then paint one on, and place the belt back on the sprockets. The arrow will indicate to a mechanic, this is the way the belt must be put back on (if they replace any cam or crank oil seals). Slip the new belt onto the Crank sprocket. While maintaining tension on the side of the belt opposite the tensioner, slip the belt onto the Camshaft sprocket. Releace the Tensioner adjusting nut to allow spring tension against the belt. Temporarily reinstall the crank pully, taking care to align the notch in the pully with the raised area on the sprocket. Rotate the crank clockwise two complete revolutions. Recheck the alignment of the of the valve timing marks. If they do not align properly, loosen the tensioner, slip the belt off the crank pully, align the timing marks, reinstall the belt, and check alignment again. Tighten the tensioner nut, then the bolt. Reinstall all parts removed, in the opposite order, of course. Start the engine and allow to reach normal operating temp, then road test. THEORETICALLY, you should simply be able to replace the belt with the new one, and go, as long as you did not move any of the sprockets when removing or installing the belt. Most people do it this way, and do not test for alignment before replacing everything. When the belt wears, timing will be off, very little, and this is why you check alignment. The belt may have slipped a tooth, making the timing off. This is why the Cam and Crank sprockets must both align properly. An experienced person will do just that: Replace the belt, and go. It really isn't all that hard. It helps to have a second person around with some experience also.

V belt broke rapped around crank pully broke sencer wont crank

The crank balancer pulley needs to be removed so the crank sensor can be replaced. You will need an air impact wrench to remove the pulley bolt and a puller to remove the balancer.

Antifreeze drips from crank shaft pully area when running.

it's probably not dripping from the crankshaft... it would drip from the water pump just on top of it...

to check if it is done, take a flashlight and spot on top of the water pump. there should be a hole on top of it behind the pulley...

if it is damp, the pump is gone....

if not it might leak from the gasket...

They are usually in there pretty tight. If drivable, you can have someone loosen it up with a shop air gun.
Thread is not reverse.
There is a second way to remove it...Use a solid 1/2" breaker bar with the correct size impact socket. You need to support it and brace it against the floor. Then "bump" the engine over Don't crank, just bump. The engine crank will unscrew itself from the bolt. Be careful doing this if socket and bar get loose they can damage you and stuff around the area where you're working. I use a pipe driven into the ground with a pair of vise grips attached to the breaker bar to keep it at the right height. (bar goes inside the end of the pipe)

Help me please

Remove a spark plug, Stuff a long piece of rope into the hole. Stuff as much as you possibly can in the hole. The rope at this point is a piston stop. Now you can rotate the pulley counter-clockwise until the piston wedges the rope against the cyl. head. The lower bolt can now be removed because the rope is keeping the engine from turning. Once broke loose, turn crank forward again enough to remove the rope out of the plug hole. Now you should be able to remove the lower bolt.
