SOURCE: 1991 honda civic timing belt

lock a pair of vise grips to your flywheel.then rotate the engine till the vise grips are snug against the block and tranny.if u dont have a high torque impact gun you can use a half inch breakover bar with about a 6ft cheater bar.apply steady pressure until bolt breaks lose.the reason why the crank bolt is so tight is that every time you start the car it tightens the bolt.

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: crankshaft bolt came off Montero sport.

Hey dave,

I just read this evening about a recall dealing with that very thing. Here is a description taken from intellichoice.com

ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE Manufacturer Recall Number00V311001
Model AffectedMONTERO SPORT
Units Affected210,000
DefectVEHICLE DESCRIPTION: PASSENGER VEHICLES: MIRAGE MODEL VEHICLESEQUIPPED WITH 1.5L ENGINES; MONTERO SPORT MODELS EQUIPPED WITH 3.0LENGINES; AND MONTERO MODELS EQUIPPED WITH 3.0L ENGINES. THE BOLTSECURING THE CRANKSHAFT PULLEY CAN BECOME LOOSE AND THE PULLEY COULDFALL OFF THE VEHICLE.
ConsequencesTHE CONDITION CAN RESULT IN A LOSS OF POWER STEERING ASSIST, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Corrective ActionON THE MIRAGE VEHICLES, THE DEALERS WILL INSTALL A NEW, IMPROVEDCRANKSHAFT PULLEY BOLT ON THE OLDER ENGINES. ON NEW ENGINES WHICHALREADY HAVE THE IMPROVED BOLT, THE DEALER WILL TIGHTEN THE CRANKSHAFTPULLEY BOLT TO THE CORRECT TORQUE SPECIFICATION. ON THE MONTERO MODELS,DEALERS WILL TIGHTEN THE CRANKSHAFT PULLEY BOLT TO THE CORRECT TORQUESPECIFICATIONS. IF THE BOLT IS DAMAGED, IT WILL BE REPLACED.
NotesOWNERS WHO DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT THE MANUFACTURER.


That being said, there is no reason the dealer should have needed to fiddle with the crank pulley to do the cam plug seals. I have to replace mine also, and from all the info I have read to prepair for it, its rather straight forword and simple to do as attested by this answer to FAQ's from this page about 3/4 the way near the bottom:

http://msport97.proboards6.com/index.cgi?board=faq&action=display&n=1&thread=6258&page=1#1069097737

Since you have had the truck since new, do you recall having this recall service performed? If it wasn't, hey, you might have a strong case to have Mitsubishi pick up the tab for repairs. It may even be possiblewell that the tech attempted to perform the recall and screwed up. In any case, I would be doing some Googling into this known issue, starting' with the Mitsubishi Montero Sport forum FAQ's referenced in the above link, and this owners forum as well:

Both have a great wealth of info about our babys. Hope my long rambling helps in some way. God bless, and good luck with your issue.

SOURCE: Crankshaft pulley bolt broke. How do i get it out????

You will have to drill the bolt out completely. You could first try an extractor set, it will have to be drilled to the size on the extractor set, use a product called PB Blaster and let it soak for a few days reapplying every 12 hours or so. If it broke off you may not be able to get it out with an extractor set but use the biggest extractor that will fit. If you have the head of the bolt and any threads showing you will have to fid a HSS Drill bit a little smaller than the outer diameter of the threads. then carefully drill the bolt out, it will take forever so take your time, I have set up drills with blocks and bungee cords so it will drill itself without you being in atendance, but the drill has to be positioned precisely as to not damage the inside diameter of the threads for when you install the new bolt. I even went so far at times at home to install a video camera to a small tv inside the house so I could monitor if the drill had changed position. I recently had to do exhaust bolts (6) and a spark plug that had rusted and broken off inside the motor, just the threaded portion of the spark plug was all that was there.

SOURCE: can't remove crankshaft timing belt pulley BOLT!

You will have to brace the crankshaft somehow, either by way of the flywheel, or the pulley. The trick to getting the bolt to break is "heat". Propane will sometimes work, but it's generally not hot enough. You want to get that bolt glowing if you can, and hit it with air impact then. Be careful not to burn yourself!

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

Where is crankshaft posing senser


These are usually right around the crankshaft pulley area. They pickup the signals from the front of the engine where the fanbelt goes around the lower pulley. The sensors are usually pointed towards the crankshaft right in that area of the crankshaft pulley.

Just need to know were the water pump on montero sport 1998 3.0 Ls engine????


It's under the timing cover on the front of the engine. I have pasted autozone.com instructions to replace the water pump below.


3.0L & 3.5L Engines

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. If necessary, properly release the fuel pressure.
  3. Drain the cooling system.
  4. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Negative battery cable
CAUTION Wait at least 90 seconds after the negative battery cable is disconnected to prevent possible deployment of the air bag.

Upper radiator shroud Accessory belts Air conditioning compressor tensioner pulley, if equipped Cooling fan and clutch assembly and the water pump pulley Thermostat and housing on 3.0L, 3.5L engines Water outlet, gasket and houses Radiator hoses from the water pump Crankshaft pulley(s) Timing belt covers. If the same timing belt will be reused, mark the direction of the timing belt's rotation, for installation in the same direction. Be sure the engine is positioned so the No. 1 cylinder is at the TDC of its compression stroke and the sprockets timing marks are aligned with the engine's timing mark indicators. Timing belt Water pump bolts are different lengths, note their positions before removing. Water pump from the block Water pipe connection and O-ring

To install:
  1. Clean and dry the mating surfaces of the block and water pump
  2. Install or connect the following:

    New O-ring on the water pipe connection, wet the new O-ring with water to aid in installation Water pump, with a new gasket, Torque the bolts to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm) on 3.0L and 3.5L engines Alternator bracket bolt to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm) Timing belt(s) and covers Crankshaft pulley(s) Thermostat and housing on 3.0L, 3.5L engines. Torque the bolts to 12-14 ft. lbs. (17-20 Nm). Radiator hose to the water pump Water outlet, new gasket and houses. Torque the bolts to 12-14 ft. lbs. (17-20 Nm). Water pump pulley Cooling fan and clutch assembly Air conditioning compressor tensioner pulley, if equipped Accessory belts Upper radiator shroud Thermostat and housing on 3.0L, 3.5L engines Negative battery cable
  3. Refill the radiator with coolant. This cooling system has a self-bleeding thermostat, so system bleeding is not required.
  4. Run the vehicle until the thermostat opens and fill the overflow tank. Check for leaks.
  5. Once the vehicle has cooled, recheck the coolant level.

How to torque down a crankshaft pulley so it doesn't turn


it shouldn't turn as they are usually on a key way which is in a groove on the crank and locates into a groove on the pulley. If you put some locktite on the thread of the pulley retaining bolt you should only need to pull the bolt down to around 60 to 80 ft/lbs but make sure the key way is in place or it will continue to turn

Crankshaft pulley (harmonic balancer) removal- disconnect neg battery cable, remove belts, it would be a good idea to soak the bolt w/ penetrating oil overnight, there is a special 'crankshaft pulley holding tool' available to secure the pulley while removing and installing the bolt. Some parts stores loan tools for free if u purchase parts from them, I don't know if this is available, but it would be worth checking out. Attach holding tool and remove bolt securing pulley. Carefully remove pulley from crankshaft, Do NOT pry off. Remove key from crankshaft sprocket,
Install: install key on crankshaft sprocket, slide pulley on, apply clean oil to bolt threads but NOT to washer contact surfaces, secure crankshaft w/ holding tool, tighten to 159 ft lbs (91-93 Accord), install belts, re-attach neg cable.
