SOURCE: How can I stop the crankshaft from turning so I

The easiest way is to remove the inspection cover at the rear of the engine where the transmission bolts on and slide a screw driver or chisel in the teeth of the ring gear and let it come up on the block. You may need a helper to hold it unless you can find a way to keep it in place while you torque. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: harmonic balancer pully bolt will not loosen

Hi,Try some pb-blaster bolt remover(you can get it at any automotive parts store,auto-zone and will have to sit awhile) but if it will still not break loose you will have to either use a impact wrench or heat it up with a plumbers propane bottle torch and remove it that way...good luck

SOURCE: 92 Park Avenue, I need help replacing the harmonic

About all you can do is brace your ratchet and socket against the frame of the car, or even against a block of wood, and turn the key just a touch, to turn the engine over. You'll have to be careful of the engine rotation direction.

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

You'll probably need to use a large gear puller - the balancer may be forced onto the crankshaft by the center bolt.

How do you replace the harmonic balancer pulley on the 2000 oldsmobile intrigue


The short answer to your question is:

1. Raise the car on the passenger side and remove the front wheel.
2. Remove the belts on the harmonic balancer.
3. Remove the retaining bolt.
4. With a puller, jack the harmonic balancer off of the crank shaft. You can rent a puller at your local auto parts store. It is easiest to access the harmonic balancer through the fender, hence the need to remove the wheel.
5. You should also consider replacing the seal around the harmonic balancer to minimize the possibility of a leak later.
6. Install the new harmonic balancer and tighten the retaining bolt to the specified torque (I don't know this off the top of my head).
7. Replace the belts and wheel, and voila...mission accomplished.

This was a short answer to your question. You may wish to consult a repair manual for illustrations, torque specifications, additional instructions, etc. This job is not for the faint of heart. Good luck!

Tighten the puller bolt and make sure the harmonice balancer bolt does not turn. The balancer should come off at this point.
