Question about 1992 Honda Accord
Need to know the direction to loosen crank shaft bolt.
Sound like you have the typical "frozen" crank bolt. To remove it, it's counter clockwise. What you do to remove it when it's frozen, pull #1 spark plug out, rotate crank so #1 piston is at the bottom of the cylinder. Now take a long piece of rope and stuff it into the spark plug hole as much as you can. Use a screwdriver to keep stuffing rope into cylinder. The rope is now a piston stop. When turning the crank counter clockwise to remove it, you'll feel the crank stop. Now you can crank on the wrench to break the bolt loose. I use a long 1/2" drive breaker bar, long 1/2" extension, and a jack stand to support the extension and with a jack handle over the breaker bar, pull hard and you'll hear a loud pop. At this point the bolt will break loose for you. Don't worry you will not break the crank bolt doing this. After the bolt breaks loose, rotate the crank clockwise again just enough the remove the rope.
