    I have been using the impact wrench but the main problem is that I can't keep the crankshaft from turning.

    I've had similar scenarios on multiple occasions. repeated applications of WD-40 and the impact wrench. always got it.. good luck...

You will have to brace the crankshaft somehow, either by way of the flywheel, or the pulley. The trick to getting the bolt to break is "heat". Propane will sometimes work, but it's generally not hot enough. You want to get that bolt glowing if you can, and hit it with air impact then. Be careful not to burn yourself!

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

This is a simple problem to solve.
To replace the timing belt the mark on the camshaft pulley should be aligned with the engine block/valve cover and the mark on the crankshaft pulley should be aligned with the mark on the engine block.
The marks may be a white mark or an indentation.

When this is done one of the cylinders will be at TDC (Top Dead Center). In this position the ALL THE INTAKE AND EXHAUST VALVES IN THAT CYLINDER WILL BE CLOSED (compression stroke). Get the correct cylinder. Remove the spark plug in that cylinder. Back off the piston slightly and pack a length of a small diameter rope into the spark plug hole until full. Leave one end out for removal! Now when you turn the crankshaft nut the piston will push against the rope and the engine will not turn. You can get a manual from the library, auto supply shops or internet.

Some books suggests compressed air with a sparkplug adapter. That's elaborate and too noisy.

Make sure those marks are aligned on final assembly ! The valves will hit the pistons if not.

For my '92 Mazda, a tool supposedly exists for holding the crankshaft by the pulley bolts while you use a breaker bar on the crankshaft bolt. Mazda could not find it in their parts system, probably because it was too long ago. I finally went back to the starter method with the braced breaker bar on the crankshaft bolt. I had to charge the battery to make sure I had maximum power to the starter. I bumped it a few times, checked the socket to make sure it wasn't slipping off, bump a few more times, took the socket and breaker bar off and turned the engine to a new position and repeated all that in 3 or 4 crankshaft positions, so I wouldn't be hitting the same spot on the flywheel every time. After about 40 bumps with the starter, the bolt finally came loose.

You need a "Crankshaft hold" tool which screws into the pulley using the same screws that hold the larger pulley on while giving room to still get an impact socket on the crank bolt. As the 91-94 Mercury Capri use a Mazda 1.6 Engine (which are much more popular than the Capri) you can use a Mazda Miata crankshaft hold tool. Can make your own from scrap steel and a oxy torch if you have - or buy one from flyinmiata.com or the ebay store "mazdamecca. Some good videos on Youtube if you search for Mazda Miata Crankshaft keyway.

Don't recommend you torch the bolt as some other folks have suggested as there is a seal behind it as well as the chance the bolt would lose its temper.

Also don't recommend the technique of putting the breaker bar on the bolt and running the starter (50/50 shot the starter gear will break before the bolt breaks lose).

Once the proper pulley hold tool is in place you can really bear down on a breaker bar - giving it a few sharp wraps with a small sledge hammer helps break it lose. Impact should work as well if you have a strong enough compressor to supply enough torque.

I understand. and i have found ways to get around it.... but i'm sorry, i cannot tell you. they are horribly unsafe, and i'm not having that on my consience. all i'll say, is that if there is anything attached to the pulley (the timing belt) or anything that is indirectly attached to the pulley (the crankshaft and inherently the flywheel) holding any of those still with a well placed screwdriver will help. please be careful...

Can I get a diagram for a removal of a alternator on a 1991 Mercury Capri XR 2 turbo


Disconnect the Red battery terminal first and then loosen the serpentine belt by moving the tensioner pulley with the correct socket to permit slack enough to dislodge the serpentine belt from any pulley such as the idler pulley or other pulley. Pay close attention of how the belt is routed prior to removing. Remove electrical connections to the alternator. Remove all alternator mounting bolts to remove the alternator. I would recommend a Haynes manual from the parts store on your vehicle. I will help you now and well into the future with all problems that may occur. Be sure you have a fully charged battery at all times as a low battery will cause the internal voltage regulator to over heat and burn up due to the need for more amperage than the alternator can generate.

4cyl 2000 honda accord engine stalls while idling, recently died and will only start for short periods... possible problems/solutions?


check for spark and fuel after it dies.

If there is spark but no fuel, then the fuel pump may be bad or a clogged fuel filter.

If there is fuel but not spark, then the ignition control module or the ignition coil could be bad.

Also, check that the timing belt is timing the engine correctly.

Disconnect main wiring harness from upper front cover (timing belt) cover, then remove eight upper timing belt cover bolts, then the upper cover, Fig. 20. Raise and support vehicle. Remove right front wheel and tire assembly and splash shield. Use strap wrench tool No. D85L-6000-A, or equivalent, to hold water pump pulley while removing water pump pulley bolts. Remove water pump pulley from water pump. Remove crankshaft pulley. Remove five lower timing belt cover attaching bolts and the cover. Rotate crankshaft in a clockwise direction to align crankshaft and camshaft sprocket timing marks, Fig. 21. If timing belt is to be reused, mark direction of rotation. Loosen timing belt tensioner nut, then remove timing belt. CAUTION: With timing belt removed, avoid turning camshaft or crankshaft. If movement is required, exercise extreme caution to avoid valve damage caused by piston contact.

On my 91 capri non turbo, the alternator is sqealing


Could be the belt or tensioner(if so equipped) was too tight and then it may have warped the pulley or ruined the alternator. The belt smoking could definately be overtensioned or the bearings are shot in the alternator and creating the friction in your belt. Check the tension specs for most vehicles is usually between 1-1/2 to 2 inches of play. Thats how far your belt can be moved up and down by hand after tensioned. Too tight and you risk burning up bearings in other places or too loose and you hear squeeking and the vehicle may not charge properly or even overheat from water pump not turning well enough.
