Easy to do firstly find the timing marks and paint them with white paint ,gear wheel and back plate then socket and big bar for bottom pulley ,put socket and bar on pulley and make sure that as it turns clockwise the bar has a bit of movement before it hits the suspension then crank engine and as bar hits suspension it will undo teh bottom pulley bolt ,now on reflection make sure the front of the engine points to left of engine compartment ,if it points to teh right then you cannot use my patented way of doing it ,if it points to the right then its special tools to get the bottom pulley bolt undone which means its a dealer only job

    You cannot use alicantecolis' "patented" method for removing the crank bolt as the Honda engine cranks over in the direction that will only tighten the bolt more!

Honda crankshaft bolts are always extremely tight. You will need an impact gun to get it off. You may want to take the car to a local shop and just have them remove the crank bolt for you and then hand tighten it with a ratchet wrench so you can get the car home to do the rest of the work. You can get at the bolt through the wheel well with the impact gun and a 17mm deep socket, it doesn't take much effort, it's just that the shop may not want to help as they're not getting the job. A box of doughnuts or beer may help here.

Set timing on a 98 honda civic dx


"The crankshaft timing pointer must be perfectly aligned with the white mark on the flywheel or flex-plate; the camshaft pulley must be aligned so that the word UP is at the top of the pulley and the marks on the edge of the pulley are aligned with the surfaces of the head.
Install the timing belt over the pulleys and tensioners.
Loosen the bolt used to lock the timing belt tensioner. Loosen, then tighten the timing belt adjusting nut.
Turn the crankshaft counterclockwise until the cam pulley has moved 3 teeth; this creates tension on the timing belt. Loosen, then tighten the adjusting nut and tighten it to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm). Tighten the bolt used to lock the timing belt tensioner.
Realign the timing belt marks, then install the balancer belt drive sprocket on the crankshaft.
Align the front balancer pulley; the face of the front timing balancer pulley has a mark, which must be aligned with the notch on the oil pump body. This pulley is the one at 10 o'clock to the crank pulley when viewed from the pulley end.
Align the rear timing balancer pulley (2 o'clock from the crank pulley) using a 6 x 100mm bolt or rod. Mark the bolt or rod at a point 2.9 in. (74mm) from the end. Remove the bolt from the maintenance hole on the side of the block; insert the bolt or rod into the hole. Align the 2.9 in. (74mm) mark with the face of the hole. This pin will hold the shaft in place during installation.
Install the balancer belt. Once the belts are in place, be sure that all the engine alignment marks are still correct. If not, remove the belts, realign the engine and reinstall the belts. Once the belts are properly installed, slowly loosen the adjusting nut, allowing the tensioner to move against the belt. Remove the pin from the maintenance hole and reinstall the bolt and washer.
Turn the crankshaft 1 full turn, then tighten the adjuster nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm). Remove the bolt used to lock the timing belt tensioner."

Just wondering if it is hard to rplace the crank shaft postion sensor on a 2000 honda civic. and were can i find this part on my car.


It is at the bottom of the front of the engine. You have to take the timing belt cover off to get to it. The crankshaft pulley bolt is the hardest thing to remove as it has LOTS of torque holding it on. If you don't have the special tool to hold the crankshaft pulley in place or a powerful air impact gun, you won't be able to take the pulley off to get the timing cover off.

How to put my 85 honda civic on TDC so i can remove the water pump


the crank has a mark for TDC. (white) and the cam gear should have UP marked on it. You want the UP mark UP at the 12 oclock position.(as you are looking at the top pulley) there will be marks at the 3 and 9 oclock positions and these marks line up the the flat portion of the head that the valve cover sits on. While its apart ......replace the timing belt, and replace the pulley, and replace the cam and crank shaft seals, adjust the valves.

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.

Which way do you turn the crankshaft pulley bolt to loosen it?


It turns left (counterclockwise) to remove. An impact wrench is best if you can get one on it.

If you don't use an impact wrench, you may need to somehow keep the crank from turning when you loosen the bolt.

One way is to pull the belt tighter to put more tension on the crank pulley.

There are other creative ways I've used. If you have any trouble let me know.

How do I loosen the bolt on crank shaft?


Hi Manuel

The bolt comes off, in an anti clockwise direction.

I normally put a socket on an extension bar, with metal tube, to extend the length, on to the crank pulley bolt.

Secure under the vehicle with wooden block, and spin he starter, this will loosen it off no problem.

But this procedure must be carried out, before the cam belt timing is disturbed.

Airgun can be used to replace the bolt.

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be Nice......Thank you ! John.
