There's an easy solution for someone who has the equipment and know-how...but it would be difficult for someone lacking one of the above.
There are two techniques that will work.

One is to use an oxy-acetylene or plasma torch to burn/melt the bolt out. A new nut assembly will have to be used. This is a job for an expert because of the fuel tank, plastic wiring, etc.
Second technique is to use a welder to weld a nut onto the broken bolt. The heat will tend to break the bolt loose, and when it cools a bit, the welded nut can be used with a socket to remove the broken bolt. Again, usually a job for a specialist who takes the time to disconnect your battery, and protect necessary components.

Here's the best way to remove any stubborn bolts:

1.) Use a propane torch. You can get one at Wal-Mart for about $20. Just heat up bolt and it should come off. You have have to heat and let it cool a couple of times.

2.) You can spray PB Blaster on the bolt. You can get PB Blaster at Wal-Mart or almost any auto parts store.

Thanks,
Andrew

Broke off 2 bolts in the manifold where the thermostate goes


You will need to use a tool called and easyout to remove the broken bolts. This requires drilling a hole thru the center of each broken bolt. Thread the easyout into the drilled hole in a counterclockwise fashion as tight as possible. Using a socket or wrench, turn the easyout tool counterclockwise, it should lock up in the frilled hole and unscrew the broken bolt. The hardest part will be trying to drill a hole in the center of the broken bolts. You didn't say, but did you break the bolts while tightening them down or removing them?. Not that it makes any difference, just curious. Good luck to you.

If it is with the 3.3 liter V6 you'll have to discoonect the ehaust from the backside of the engine. Yes those bolts will break so be certain to have new nuts/bolts at the ready. Oh yes exhaust gasket too. To remove/install the pulley you will need a special tool.

I hope this may have assisted you!

I can only see one of the starter bolts...


There shouldn't be any hardware to remove to get to the starter bolts. You should try removing the bolt you can see and see if the starter comes off. There is a small chance the other bolt is broken. It may be in a spot you can't see as well. You may have to try to feel around the starter in places you can't see and feel for a bolt.

The only thing would do for the stripped bolts is to retap them with a tap & die set using the next larger size. As for the one that's broken off you can use what's called an "Easyout". You drill a hole into the broken off part of the bolt and then insert the Easyout. The Easyout has left hand threads and as you turn it , it bites into the broken bolt and usually will take it right out.

Hope this helps.

Good luck Loringh
