Question about 1995 Mitsubishi 3000GT
I think that's a 130lb bolt that's propbably going to take even more torque to loosen it. you need a breaker bar on the rright size socket to fit the nut in the middle of the crank. remove the driver tire and all the plastic trim. With the front of the car safely up on jack stands and the hand break applied you should have easy access. Air tools often work best to loosen the nut. but if you need to stop the crank turning to put some serious force on a breaker bar, have a friend put the car in 1st and hold the foot break down as you push the breaker bar towards the back of the car with your foot. you need to lay in front of the car with your legs under it to push against the breaker bar.
If that fails you can wedge the breaker bar against the frame member and do a quick blip on the ignition key to turn the crank. watch out for flying breaker bars though.
putting it back on is just as hard as you need to get up to 130lbs torque to keep in on safely..

Using a long 1/2in breaker bar or ratchet of good quality and a socket, place socket on bolt and position ratchet or breaker bar so that the end rests on the frame or the ground on the DRIVER side . Make sure you have the ratchet in the "off" position and turn the ignition to the start position for a split second while someone else holds the rathet or bar on the bolt. This will break the bolt loose, and if the engine starts when turning ignition to start for a split second it will simply unscrew the bolt all the way. If the starter isn't strong enough to break it loose the first time move the ratchet or breaker bar away from it's resting point just a little bit so that it has to travel slightly before hitting the frame or the ground and this WILL break the bolt loose. "VERY IMPORTANT" make sure end of ratchet or breaker bar is is on TOP of the frame or on the ground on the DRIVER side. Glad to help.
