Question about 2004 Honda Accord
The bolt is really tight and we can't break it loose is it a reverse thread or something
No engine stated, so any help will be wrong, !!!!!!
V6? we cant open hood and look, so we are blind as bats. here.
bad input nets bad output , just like a computer.
i dont think its LHT. left hand treads.
its either rusty,
or last guy used red loctite and needs 300F heat to get IT, soft.
or your not trying up to 150fl-lbs of reverse torque.
my damper is at 100/ft/lbs
and will take way more to break free (no locktite)
my guess 2 is this is a slush pump car, a A/T tranny?
and as such , you cant lock the M/t in 5th gear?
sure, and the FSM shows what to do , to get it off for A/Ts
some engines, have special tool.
and or a pulley locking device. (home made works, made many)
some guys just use impact gun and strip the treads out of the crank
and the new FSMs all say, (DONT DO THAT, exactly)
in a shop the dork that does that , just calls you and say, hey buddy
your crankshaft is wrecked, (dont let them touch your engine)
btw l, read the fsm.
and all words for the UNSAID actions you are taking.
here is one , just to scare you.
Reprogram the crankshaft position (CKP) pattern. Run the engine until the operating temperature reaches 176 degree. With the engine stopped clear the CKP pattern. Turn the ignition switch OFF. Turn the ignition switch ON and wait thirty seconds.
Check PULSAR F/B LEARN in the data list with the HDS. If not complete repeat the procedure. If complete, road test the vehicle on a level surface. Decelerate the engine speed of 5000 rpm to 3000 rpm. If equipped with automatic transaxle use two Drive positions. If equipped with manual transaxle use first gear.
see, may be the stuck bolt is a blessing,
here i will quote the pulley page for the 3.0L
just to show what a pain A/T cars are. (unsaid tranny )
Install the crankshaft pulley, and tighten the bolt, as follows. Do not use an impact wrench.
note carefully this bolt is not set to a final torque,
it uses base plus angle.
id use a new bolt. (im savvy and hate buying new crank shafts)

i can answer part of that... have someone put pressure hard on the serpentine belt while you turn the bolt.... likewise if you have access to the timing belt tho i would be careful with that so the timing does not shift. after you get the bolt out you will need a puller for it too. carefull as well when you install the new one to match up the groove on the crankshaft with the pully or you'll never have the timing right.

it is just tight , it is best to use a impact wrench to remove if you do not have honda special to tool to hold the crank

Make sure you check timing and the belt. if it spun don't risk putting it back on. Hope you got a new key. TIMING is important so you don't stick a valve through the top of your piston

Bolt on the pulley is NOT reverse thread, but you will need to apply heat with a torch kit (oxy/acetlyene), and an impact gun to get the bolt off. If you plan on doing a job like this, I would highly recommend a good repair manual to aid you during this reapir. Even I use repair manuals when ever I perform a big job like this, ya can't remember it all.

1. Almost every bolt on the end of any shaft has left-handed threads. You turn it RIGHT to loosen.
2. I have used a chain wrench whenever I have replaced a water pump. It looks like a vise grip with a bicycle chain connected to it.
But if you use this, be sure to cushion the chain so as to prevent direct contact with precision surfaces. For this I have used rags or rubber hose sections.
