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

How replace a/c belt


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.

The crank shaft front pulley bolt on a Toyota Camry 94 (5S-FE motor) is seized. How can I stop the motor from turning to get the bolt undone? Its an auto.


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!

My front passenger seat belt doesn't work. it won't move at all. stuck with a little bit of slack. can i fix this seat belt issue myself?


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!!

Changing the rotor on my 2002 hyundai accent


? 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.

How do you drain the coolant system on 2003 Impala 3.4 ?


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.

Broken bolt


Spray with penetrate oil. Let sit. Bolt probably broke b/c of seized threads. And make sure you loosening it the right way!

If there's any of the bolt sticking out, grasp with a GOOD pair of vise grips, try to ease it out.

If that doesn't work, you have to invest in a drill bit and Easy-Outs to get the bolt out.

Work slowly and hopefully she'll come out.

1996 jeep grand cherokee limited v8


With the water pump removed, you have to heat the body of the water pump. There is a O-Ring that seizes the tube into the water pump. Sometimes you can just loosen the bolt and heat the pump with it still bolted up the engine. Use some pliers to wiggle the tube while pulling the tube. When you put it back together replace the o-ring and add some rtv sealant around the o-ring too. This helps the seizing problem. Hope this helps

Fto fitting alternator belt


loosen these 2 bolts in this order 8a9e629.jpg 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.
