Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
If it's turning the crank and not allowing you to loosen. It's torqued down pretty tight as well. If you have access to an air impact wrench (1/2') and a large socket, it should solve your problem. If you don't have access or enough room to put one in, take a socket and ratchet handle and "shock" it by hitting it with a mallet or hammer. Here's the kicker: it's most likely left-hand thread so it's righty loosey, lefty tighty... let me know how it goes...

Sometimes you have to heat the head of the bolt with a torch the use an impact wrench to break it loose.
If you don't have access to the above, you can remove the starter motor and jam the flywheel with a screwdriver or something and use a long breaker bar on the crankshaft bolt. (Kind-of the hard way, but it can work)
If you are replacing the water pump, it is recommended that you also replace the timing belt and the belt tensioner pulley while you are in there. I also personally recommend replacing the camshaft, crankshaft, and oil pump shaft seals. This can keep you from having to go back in there because of an oil leak. If this is all done at the same time, there will be no need to go back in there for another 60,000 miles.
