Question about 1994 Buick Park Avenue

1 Answer

I have a 1994 Buick Park Ave. I was recently changing my crankshaft pulley, I didn't torque the pulley correctly and it sheared off the woodruff key. It's stuck in there pretty bad. I've had three mechanics come by to check it out and no one could get it out. I've bought chisels, punches, picks and even a drimmel to try to get it out. No luck! My car has been sitting up for a month now. There's not enough room to tap at it head on, it must be at an angle which is making it harder. Is there another way to get the key out?

Oops. chisels, punches, picks and drimmel and still couldn't get it out.

I would think about pulling the engine out and putting it on a stand to work on.

Sorry this had to happen to you.

Are you sure you didn't bend valves when the keyway sheared off ? Do a compression test and get back to me with the results.

Crankshaft Woodruff Key Removal


You are correct, this key does drive both. While I have never tried to remove the keway with out both pulley and lower sprocket you may be able to (my gut says no but anything is worth trying once) I'd position the keyway at the 12 o'clock postion and with a good pair of needle nose pliers see if the key will roll out as you pull up and away with it. If it will not you'll of course have to remove the front of the engine and pull the timing belt, if over 60K miles on belt go ahead and replace with new.

I hope this may have assited and good luck!
