I had the same problem,and by mistake happen to put my impact wrench in forward instead of reverse. After pulling the trigger and realizing what I had done switched back to reverse pulled the trigger once again and it backed out. Could have been luck or simply broke loose the tight fit,not sure but it's worth a try if all else fail's

I have had luck using a 3 foot breaker bar with a 1/2 in. drive. fit correct size socket on bar and place onto crank bolt with handle on side of crank rotation, then bump the starter. although not good for starter gear, this has worked as last resort on a number of occassions. be careful around bar as backlash can be hazardous.

I cant get the crankshaft bolt off

They are sometimes installed with threadlock compound which makes it very difficult. How big and powerful was the impact wrench? Is there scope yet to hire a really huge one?

The bump method is a last resort because it puts the flywheel ring gear teeth at some risk. Break one of those and you are up for expense.

I am trying to replace the timing belt on a 95 camry. and cant seem to get the bolt out of the crank pully. Is it a lefthand thread bolt. Or is ther a trick to getting it loose. thanks

If you dont have a impact gun,heres a trick,first,see if the crank goes clock wise direction,if it does,put the socket whit a long brackerbar in a way that will hold it self,then crank the engine whit the starter,whit the ignition key.

1995 toyota camry leaking oil from behind the timing belt cover. Isn't this a major repair? Is the leak more than likely a camshaft seal?

If you haven't had the timing belt replace (60,000 miles is the suggested service intervale) this is an overlap of having the timing belt replaced.
If the timing belt is not due for replacement and its the cam shaft seal that is leaking. Its a pretty easy fix. Remove the top timing belt cover , and the crankshaft sensor wiring you may have to remove the front engine mount . Set #1 piston at TDC, Loosen tensioner w/ spring slip off belt. **Remove sprocket pull out old seal with a sharp pick. Greese and install new seal make sure its flush with its bore . Reistall sprocket. Slide belt over Cam sprocket tighten tensioner. Install cover and mount (if applicable) Check timing marks by turning crank two revolutions.
** If CamSprocket Bolt is difficult to remove then remove valve cover and use a 21mm wrench to hold the Camshaft while you crack off Cam Sprocket Bolt.
You will see the groves on the Camshaft where you can place a wrench to hold the shaft.
After you replaced the seal replace the valve cover gasket ONLY IF YOU HAD TO REMOVE THE COVER TO HOLD THE CAM WHILE REMOVING ITS BOLT.

This is about as major as it gets.

Replacing the timing belt and water pump on a 1995 toyota camry le 4 cyl. need to get the drive shaft pulley off. 1st, right or left hand thread on the pulley bolt? 2nd any easy way to get the bolt loose?

Threads are standard. I use a 1/2" drive breaker bar on the bolt. Position the bar so that if you turn it clockwise it will hit the ground or the car frame. Then I turn the ignition to start for just a moment, cranking the engine over with the starter which will loosen the bolt. DO NOT let anyone hold the bar or stand anywhere near it if you try this technique. I have done it many times with no problems.

How do u fix a timing belt and water pump on 95 camry

You have to remove from the front of the engine the serpentine belts, crankshaft dampner ,timing belt covers and drain the coolant.
Install the dampner bolt back on --( may have to use a spacer so as not to bottom out the bolt in the crankshaft ) then turn the engine till the the timing marks are lined up-- that's is crankshaft to mark on the oil pump housing and the camshaft marks to the head.
Then loosen the Timing belt tensioner,remove the belt and then the water pump.
Re-install in back order.
You can get a shop manual for your car from your local library,
Good Luck.
PS: if the old timing belt is striped or torn ,then you have to turn the crankshaft and camshaft individually to line them up the timing marks before you slip on the new belt..

Hi need to know what timing marks to use when replacing cams

The timing marks to use are spot-drilled on the faces of the timing gears.
The timing marks on the camshaft gears must align side-by-side, and as closest as possible on the Toyota,Camry 2.2 engine.

How to get a crankshaft pulley off to change timing belt

if you have the bolt out already you can use two short pry bars one each side of pulley and pry
evenly. it should slide off. If not you can use a big 2 jar puller. If you don't have the bolt out you can use a air impact or use a change wrench to hold pulley while you loosen the bolt with a long 1/2 inch ratchet. It is a 19 mm head bolt.

I have a problem removing the bolt of the damper

you usually need an impact gun,but....with the right amount or extension to clear the fender,you can use 1/2 drive breaker bar and a piece of pipe for leverage this bolt is torqued tight for a reason so even if you get it off, after the job is done it would be a good idea to take it to a mechanic and ask the nicely to tighten the crank bolt with a impact gun.have a good day DB
