Re: how to loosen a stuck bolt
Usually you either get a quality penetrating oil from an automotive supply not a penetrating lubricant. let it sit for a day or two. Or have an oxy acetylene set of tanks you don't need much oxygene but some will increase the temperature to break the rust

Did something seize up and break the belt? You might need to deal with a bigger problem before you just loosen up the tensioner bolt and put a new belt on. Loosen up the tensioner bolt, place the correct belt on, making sure you run it correctly around all the pulleys, then borrow (at OReillys or a similar) the long handled tool, you use to put tension back on the whole pulley system and tighten down the tension bolt. If it was me, I'd go to YouTube to look at a couple of DIY videos on the subject.
If the bolt is seized and u tried everything!
The last resort would be to torched the BOLT untill it loosen up!
Removing and torching it, might as well replace the CRANK OiL SEAL, carefull not to burn the CRANK PULLEY, some have a RUBBER insulation in the mid pulley!
You might be able to lubricate it with WD - 40 or other spray lubricant ( I prefer PB Blaster). As an alternative you can buy a replacement seat belt assembly from your local auto parts store that will bolt in place of your existing belt assembly - maybe. I have had to drill new mounting holes in vehicles in the past and the job required removal of the seat to have room for drilling. Then I used flat washers on the mounting bolt underside of car for strengthening the hold and I used blue Locktite to keep the nut on the bolt from loosening. Hope this helps and good luck!!
IF ENGINE SEIZED IT NEED TO BE REPLACED.IF ENGINE LOCKED WHERE YOU CANT TURN IT TO REMOVE IT FROM TRANSMISSION.YOU PROBABLY HAVE TO REMOVE OIL PAN LOOSEN ALL ROD AND BEARING CAPS BOLTS JUST ENOUGH TO WHERE THE ENGINE WILL TURN ENOUGH TO REMOVE FLY WHEEL BOLTS. FROM TRANSMISSION.
LOCATE LOOSEN THE LOW PRESSURE BLEED BOLT.THEN OPERATE THE RUBBER PUSH BUTTON PRIMER ON THE TRANSFER PUMP.DO THIS UNTIL THE FUEL EXISTING THE BLEED SCREW IS FREE OF AIR.IF PRIMER BUTTON FEELS AS IF IT IS NOT PUMPING ROTATE CRANK THE ENGINE APPROXIMATELY 90 DEGREES THEN CONTINUE PUMPING AS DESCRIBE.THEN TIGHTEN THE LOW PRESSURE BLEED SCREW TO 72 INCH POUNDS.
? you want to change the rotor? the rotors are on the front of the car and they dont have "shoes" they have pads. and a little tap or some heat would get the bolts off. or soak bolts in WD-40 for 10 mins.
The drain **** is on the lower right
"backside" of the radiator. You can't get to this or the lower hose
without removing the plastic shroud under the radiator.
This has 5 bolts holding this on. Then reach around the back of the
radiator and you will feel a wingnut. You can loosen the drain knob
with pliers, but a small crescent wrench on bolt attached to wingnut
will prevent any stripping. The knob will only need a turn or less to
loosen,,,,then you can use your fingers to adjust flow.
loosen these 2 bolts in this order
once the 1st one is loose, loosen the 2nd one until the belt is loose enough to remove the belt(if its still on). then spin the alternator pulley by hand to see if it is seized up. its a good idea to check the tensioner pulley too.
