You have to use a high torque impact wrench or you need a special tool to hold the pulley.
Care must be taken to get the timing belts markings correct before removing them.

Hi..
You read all the step possibles to remove the timing belt and reinstall.
But you still can remove the crankshaft Bolt.
OK. Maybe you 275 ft. impact gun. don't work for remove.
A high torqued bolt.
The way that always work for me in all my same cases is.
1--Remove the Negative Battery terminal.
2--Remove the Starter motor to get acces to the fly wheel dents.
With a Pry bar or Big plain Screw driver Lock the Engine
By the Dents of the Flywheel.
And loose the Crank bolt With a Breaker Bar and the repective socket.
Be patient. I'm sure this work. It's worked for me a lots of times.

Thank you I hope this work for you too.........

    If yo don'n have a breaker bar of 1/2 in.

    Use a 1/2 Ratchet with the 3/4 socket.

    And use a Metal tube to make more force.

    If is nessesary use an other gay to hold the pry barr on the fly weel.

  • Juan Guillen Jul 13, 2008

I would like to add to VOTIT's solution. You should also replace the timing belt along with the water pump if it has not been replaced recently

Use locking hole that is in the block use a dowel pin to push into the locking hole and this will hold the crankshaft while you use a socket wrench to loosen the center bolt while the socket and ratchet is on the bolt use a hammer to strike the ratchet hard in the counterclockwise direction to loosen the bolt if ths doesnt work you will need to use an impact air rachet to loosen bolt ok work with care this is a vunurable area that cannot be damaged

    hi there you were not happy with the last response so if that doesnt work for you then remove sparkplug from cylinder no# 1 then get some 1/2 rope then rotate motor so piston in cylinder number 1 is halfway down then feed lots of rope into cylinder and then bring piston up to clamp down on rope now you can loosen crank pulley bolt good luck i hope this makes things easier

Click the pdf document;
This question shows up in the newsgroup quite regularly. The bolt holding the pulley to the crankshaft is on there TIGHT. Some folks have had so much trouble getting it started they've posted plaintive enquiries wondering if it's a left-hand threaded bolt! No, it unscrews the regular way, but don't kid yourself that you're going to undo it with a short-handled wrench. Having the car up on jackstands probably won't give enough room to swing the handle of the wrench you're going to need.

Why is it so darn tight? It's a well-known phenomenon called "embedment", where the surface textures of a bolt's threads and those of its receiving hole mesh together. Honda warned its dealership technicians about it years ago, in this PDF document.

Also, 4-cylinder Honda engines have a special quirk that very few other engines do: They turn counter-clockwise, backwards from the industry norm (Honda's V6 engines turn clockwise). With clockwise engines, you can place a wrench on the bolt, position the handle against the frame just so, then blip the starter. This will break the bolt loose. You CANNOT do this with Honda's 4-cylinder engines.

    hello sir



    there is a hole on the rear of the block on the drivers side located just behind the rear balance shaft so you can lock your engine #1 cylinder @ TDC with a 6mmX100mm bolt or screwdriver. there is a hole machined into the balance shaft that holds everything still so you can get done....I would also recommend the use of an impact

    thank u

  • Harrish Mugundhan Jul 13, 2008

    Hello sir

    this is regarding ur pulley bolt



    it is "counterclockwise", if the engine is still in the car, you can try putting the car in gear,

    block the wheels for extra safety, and lock the pulley with a bar, then,

    spray the bolt with penetrating oil or simillar before attempting to undo, (let it "soak" for a while), If this fails, through lack of pulling power/strength, (no insult intended) try using the socket and bar in the lower position and assist it's lift with a jack under the bar,(not too much though or you'll end up lifting the car), then push downward on the car to cause a vibration type motion, again, be very carefull if trying the latter. The latter is not very authodox, but it may do the trick.

    good luck. take care

The bolt is torqued at 150 ft/lbs, normal thread.

Either you have a high torque impact wrench or you need a special tool to hold the pulley.

Make sure you get the timing belts markings correct before removing them. The balancer shaft belt can cause a lot of problem if not correctly installed.

Thank for using Fixya.

    chk this too....





    Step 1 is to remove all the drive belts, the water pump pulley, and all the other little stuff that's hanging off the front of the engine, which is always the end with the belts on it no matter which direction the engine is mounted in the car. Also drain the cooling system.
    Step 2 is to use your 400-lb-ft electric impact wrench to break the crank pulley bolt loose. Remove the pulley, then all the plastic covers and the valve cover.
    Step 3 is to put the pulley back on the engine after you've removed the valve cover, and get the timing mark on the cam pulley pointing up.
    Step 4 is to remove the timing belt.
    Step 5 is to change the water pump. It's held on by three 10mm-headed bolts. Unscrew bolts, remove pump, scrape all the old gasket off the block, put the new pump and gasket on and bolt it down.
    Step 6 is to hang a new timing belt on the engine.
    Step 7 is to put the car back together, including refilling the cooling system.
    If you do it this way you'll spend about two hours and it will go right in. If you leave the crank pulley on, you'll spend about two days trying to pry the cover over the water pump.

Trying to replace waterpump on a 96 suzuki swift but cant get the bottom pully off to remove the timing cover to get at the waterpump off. we cannot get a good angle to crack the nut. the frame is in the...


  1. Remove air filter to give you more room to play
  2. Loosen alternator and alternator tensioner. Alternator tensioner bolts to water pump so that bolt will need to come out.
  3. With the alternator loose, the main drive belt should be loose and be able to be removed, do this.
  4. Loosen the tensioner bolt for the air conditioner, on the underside of the engine. Losen the nut on the air conditioner tension wheel. The tensioner wheel should now slide up and down freely, allowing removal of the air conditioner belt.
  5. Remove the 4 x 10mm bolts on the water pump pulley. Remove the water pump pulley.
  6. Remove the 4 x 10mm bolts on the camshaft pulley. This is the main pulley that all the belts connect to. There is a large 17mm bolt in the middle of this pulley that does not need to be removed. (Crankshaft Bolt).
  7. The camshaft pulley should slide off, however you will probably have no clearance (because of the crankshaft bolt) to remove the pulley. The pulley has to be removed.
  8. Place a jack under the sump, use a piece of wood to protect the sump. Jack the sump up 1/2 inch. Undo the two 14mm bolts in the engine mounts. When the two left hand engine mount bolts are out, lower the jack slowly until you can slide the camshaft pulley out.
  9. Remove the plastic timing belt cover.
  10. You should now see the timing belt, remove the timing belt tensioner pulley, being careful not to move the timing belt wheels.
  11. Undo the bolts holding the water pump.
  12. Water pump should come off, water will come out if you haven't drained it.
  13. Scrape off gasket.
  14. Install new water pump.
  15. Reassemble in reverse order.

4cyl 2000 honda accord engine stalls while idling, recently died and will only start for short periods... possible problems/solutions?


check for spark and fuel after it dies.

If there is spark but no fuel, then the fuel pump may be bad or a clogged fuel filter.

If there is fuel but not spark, then the ignition control module or the ignition coil could be bad.

Also, check that the timing belt is timing the engine correctly.

Yes,but only if you want to remove the complete water pump including the thermostat housing. If you only want to replace the water pump(front section only) the part that leaks water from the small hole in the housing behind the pulley you only have to remove the 10mm bolts running in a circle!!

Leak from the water pump


  • first of all you are probably going to need a torque wrench for the crank shaft pulley bolt it has 225lbs.of torque or more.I just did one on my 1991 honda accord dx .you have to take off a/c belt ,alternator etc. on the crank pulley.(I took it to a shop and they heated the 3/4 in. bolt and used torque wrench. I broke a half inch breaker bar trying to get it offf) next use puller to take off crankshaft pulley.support motor and remove motor mount bracket. take off upper and lower timing belt covers.take off timing belt and other belt using the tensioners.take off and replace water pump CHECK ALL TIMING MARKS with #1 piston@TDC. There are about 6.

Water pump leaking


Unless your mechanically inclined, this is a tough fix if you need to replace your water pump. Your water pump is located underneath your timing belt cover (4cyl models) and basically have to have skills to get to it. These skills include removing motor mount bolt and jacking up the engine to get access to bolts that need to be removed. Unless you have decent mechanical skills, you're better off leaving it to the pros. I own a 96 Accord 4cyl 2.2L VTEC and I've done it, only because I needed to replace my timing belt.
