Question about Chevrolet Tahoe
Broken flywheel bolt to crankshaft. A mechanic says should be fine but need a second opinion. 2002 chevy tahoe
I would say you shold be ok, but if you have it apart, why not drill it out and get an easy out and fix it correctly. I would think the balance issue would be minimal that close to the center line of the crank, but there is a reason the GM engineers put 6 bolts. Remember, parts left out cost nothing.

SOURCE: broken crankshaft pulley bolt on
The only possibility I can suggest is that which is called and 'Easyout.' These are available at parts stores and come (normally) with a sized drill and a special bit with left-hand threads.
First a hole is drilled with the provided drill bit, then the removal bit is screwed into the new hole and turned counter-clockwise which further inserts the removal bit and, if the removal bit does not snap, the broken threaded shank should back out.
I would suggest soaking the broken part with penetrating lubricant first and allowing it time to seep into the threads of the broken bolt.

SOURCE: pcv valve location
can't help you with a bad head gasket, however if the car had under 100,000 miles on it the dealer should have done the repair. It was still under warranty. the car came with a 100,000 mile drive train warranty that is transferrable from owner to owner. as for the location of the pcv valve, that's easy the car does not have one

Wow it sounds like that they are not shiming the starter. On general motors products a new starter has to be shimmed, so that it lines up correctly with the flywheel. This is what is causing the flywheel/starter bolts to break and the noise you are hearing. Its not a hard process, just time consuming probably why it has not been done.
Sorry. Good luck! Dont forget to rate. Thanks, James

Once you get the nut off of the shaft use a pair of plyers or channel locks and wiggle the base back and forth it iwll come off and then you can replace the wiper assembly without taking anything else off.
