If you can get your hand back there you can try removing with a flat ratchet.Or, try using a very long extension with a swivel socket from underneath. Otherwise, sometimes it's easier to remove trans (separated from transfer case) with the engine (easier to get converter in properly when re-installing) Be aware that if crank bearings have spun, chances are there is metal throughout all oil passages in the engine and that cam bearings may have been affected...Block should be boiled out and have new cam bearings installed or you may be spending a lot of money for a short term repair.

My jeep grand cherokee engine wont start only cranking

If you have no check engine light on the dash, before cranking, then your ecu is bad and needs to be repaired or replaced. If the check engine light is on and the jeep still won't start, might be your crank sensor is bad. Have you had the trouble codes read from the ecu? It would tell exactly what's bad.

The crankshaft position sensor was seriously problematic in those old jeeps. It's located towards the top of the bell housing slightly to the driver's side I think.
