Question about 2004 Nissan XTerra
Im changing the starter and can not get it to break free from the engine what do i need to do to get it off
Starter gear is probably stuck in flywheel. 1. disconnect battery 2. use correct size socket w/ratchet and turn the crankshaft on front of motor. the bolt is inside crankshaft pulley.

Run a jumper cable from your positive side of battery. to your starter incomming large post...be careful....It will spark big time. If the started ingages your selenoid is cooked and needs to be replaced. Be real careful or you can cause harm to yourself as well as your car

are you saying will not thread back into the hole.If so,get a tap for the bolt size and retap the hole and reinstall with a new bolt.Take your time starting the bolt.
