SOURCE: Cannot crack the center bolt

Hi,
This bolt is notorious for being tight. They seem to get tighter as the engine runs.

An old Mechanics trick is to get a long half inch drive breaker bar [ a tool] and place the socket that fits the bolt onto the engine, spin the wrench handle until it sits on the pavement below the car. Then with the wrench FIRMLY and securely in this position - turn the car over just for a second until the bolt loosens.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND this as - actually as it is very dangerous if not done properly. I am just sharing this for your education. I have tried this and it does work if done right.
Another way is to rent an electric half inch drive impact wrench. It can be difficult to get to the bolt - you may have to loosen the motor mounts and jack the engine up or down until you see the bolt.


Best of it

How to remove harmonic balancer on my 2000 toyota celica gt 1.8l


you need to loosen the alternator to get the belt off then undo the bolt on the harmonic balancer. If you can't remove the harmonic balancer with a few prys you'll need a puller. When putting it back on you'll need to line up the key with the groove in the crank. Once that's done put the belt back on push the alternator back and do up the bolts

Removing harmonic balancer


First, you have to loosen the crank pulley center bolt. Best way is with an impact gun-bolt is very tight. If you have to use a breaker bar to loosen the bolt, you will have to devise a way to hold the crankshaft from turning backward while loosening it. One method is to remove the starter and wedge a piece of wood against the flywheel, preventing it from turning, while you are loosening the center bolt.
From the beginning: raise and block the side of car that the front of engine is towards. Remove the wheel and the inner fender splash shield. Remove the belts. Remove negative battery terminal, remove starter. Wedge the flywheel so it won't turn backward. Loosen and remove the center bolt. Some harmonic balancers will slide right off the crankshaft now, some are on very tight, if you can't wiggle it, tap it, and get it to move, then buy an inexpensive harmonic balancer removal puller, just a few bucks, easy to use, will save balancer from trying to hammer it off. All you need is enough room to mount up the puller to the balancer, and get the balancer moving off the crank.
Some engine lay outs there isn't enough room: then you really have to get creative, either lowering engine enough to get to pulley, or raising engine out. But most engines are positioned where the crank pulley can come off easily, with enough room to get the puller on.
The pulley may have a woodruff key in a slot on the crankshaft, and a corresponding notch on the pulley, for proper positioning of the pulley to crank. Don't lose the woodruff key.

How to change crankshaft sensor on 1999 grand price gt


To get to the sensor, the harmonic balancer pulley on the crankshaft has to be removed. The center bolt on the harmonic balancer is on very tight. To loosen without an impact wrench, remove starter motor and wedge a piece of wood against the flywheel, or use a pry bar and hold the ring gear on the flywheel rigid, while loosening the crank bolt. The engine will try to turn backward when you loosen the crank bolt, so you have to hold the flywheel rigid. Once the bolt is removed, see if you can get the harmonic balancer pulley off without a gear puller. Just try tapping it to see if it slides off, or use two screwdrivers on each side behind the pulley and see if you can start it sliding off. If it is on very tight, as many are, you will have to get hold of a harmonic balancer removal tool-a simple, inexpensive puller that bolts onto pulley and can be drawn off. You might be able to rent the tool too.
BTW, you will need to have the wheel removed from passenger side, and the inner fender cover removed to get to the crankshaft. Once the pulley is off you can unbolt the sensor and put the new one on. GM recommends using a sensor alignment tool to install, because the thin vanes on the back of the harmonic balancer pass through the sensor, and if not aligned right could damage one or the other. If you don't have the tool, put the sensor on loosely mounted, just snugged up finger tight, then test the pulley will slide through the sensor slots without touching either side of sensor. If it looks right, tighten down the sensor in place, install the harmonic balancer pulley and tighten the center crank bolt to about 105 foot pounds.
Wedge the flywheel again so the engine won't turn when tightening the crankshaft bolt.
Good luck, and hope you get it.

Harmonic balancer seems to be out of alighnment with other pulleys ,Keeps throwing off the belt HELP


check the balancer to see if outer ring has started to walk off the center hub...(common on these) Fix is to replace the balancer. You will need to remove anything in your way and get a balancer puller. You can usually have a repair shop loosen the center crank bolt to make it easier to remove, as long as you dont need to drive far to get it home. (i've got another way but its a little dangerous) Also, check that bolt before you begin. If it loosened up then just tighten it.
