SOURCE: The crank shaft front pulley

If the bolt is seized and u tried everything!
The last resort would be to torched the BOLT untill it loosen up!
Removing and torching it, might as well replace the CRANK OiL SEAL, carefull not to burn the CRANK PULLEY, some have a RUBBER insulation in the mid pulley!

Took out all the starter bolt but cannot get it to break free from the motor

Have you tried turning the crank back a few inches ?
You should be able to turn it by using the alternator or the water pump pulley.

My 2004 chevy malibu will not start. we have replaced the starter and the starter relay fuse. we have taken the battery to be tested and it is cranking exactly what it should be. the lights and radio come...

Is the motor locked up??? If the starter is engaging the flywheel (Loud "click" when key is turned) and the engine is not cranking, the engine may be locked up. Try to turn the engine by hand ny placing a socket on the crankshaft pulley bolt and using a ratchet to try to turn the pully in a clockwise direction. If it does not turn, try taking all the spark plugs out and try it again. If it turns with the spark plugs out, look for antifreeze coming out of the spark plug holes when you turn it....if anyifreeze comes out, your problem is caused by a a blown head gasket. Also pull the oil dipstick out of the tube and look at the condition of the oil. If it looks like a chocolate milkshake, your engine has probably locked up due to antifreeze getting into the oil from a blown intake manifold gasket.

No crank

shorting to start motor will allow the motor to turn but the ignition system is still off.
try with key turned to ignition position.
suspect starter solenoid on starter motor.
suspect fuses maybe there is a fuse which has blown.
suspect ignition key switch maybe defective.

04 chevy 2500HD start relay /Circuit braker turns off @ key crank

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Any fuses in the diagram, test for voltage, some are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on.
Use a digital multimeter across battery posts, everything off, the generic spec for a full charge is around 12.6 volts. Leave the leads hooked up to battery, have a helper turn key to crank, how far does it drop? In my opinion it shouldn't drop much under 10 volts, I wouldn't argue with 9.6 volts.

Toyota previa 1993 startup problems

Does it spin at all? If not either the starter is bad or the engine is seized. Try to turn engine with a socket wrench on the crank pulley bolt. Anything happen to the truck just before you had starting problems (drive through a deep puddle, overheat the engine, lose oil pressure, blown head gasket)? If it was deep water the engine could have hydraulic lock from water in the cylinder(s), remove the spark plugs and try to turn it over with the starter. If it turns over clean, dry and re-install the plugs. If it overheated, ran with low oil pressure, or the oil was contaminated with coolant the engine is probably seized.
