It sounds like you may have stripped the threads on your crank bolt. You may be in a situation where the only fix is to either, re-tap the threads using the correct size tap or replace the crank shaft.

Is the big nut holding the fan to the clutch right hand, (right to tighten,left to loosen)? 1993 navajo


You mean standard or reverse thread?
Usually crank nuts are reverse thread in relation to the direction of the pulley.

So if the pulley\engine spins clockwise then the nut is probably going to loosen by spinning it counterclockwise.

Afterall it would do no good to go down the road and have the rotation of the engine spin the nut off of the crank pulley eh?

Fig. 1: The blower motor and fan assembly is mounted in the heater and A/C module, and is accessible from the engine compartment

GM Bonneville/Eighty Eight/LeSabre 1986-1999
Blower Motor - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figures 1 and 2)
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. If necessary, tag and disconnect the number 2, 4 and 6 spark plug wires from the ignition coil and move the coil out of the way.
  3. For 1993-99 vehicles, remove the nuts and cross brace bar.
  4. Detach the electrical connections from the blower motor.
  5. Disconnect the cooling tube from the blower motor.
  6. Unfasten the screws securing the blower motor to the blower module assembly.
  7. Remove the blower motor and fan assembly from the module.
  8. If necessary, unfasten the nut attaching the fan to the blower motor shaft, then pull the fan from the blower motor.

Fig. 2: You can disassemble the fan from the motor by removing the retaining nut


To install:
  1. If the fan was removed from the motor, position the fan on the shaft, then install the retaining nut. Tighten the nut to 12 inch lbs. (1.4 Nm).
  2. Position the blower motor and fan assembly to the module, then install the retaining screws. Tighten to 5 inch lbs. (0.6 Nm).
  3. Connect the cooling tube to the blower motor.
  4. Attach the electrical connector to the blower motor.
  5. On 1993-98 vehicles, install the cross brace bar and retaining nuts. Tighten the nuts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  6. If removed, install the coil and connect the spark plug wires, as tagged during removal.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable.

Hope this helped (remember rated and comment this).

Bike pedal arm keeps falling off as i pedal.


You need a new crank arm. If you ride with the nut loosened what happens is the square part of the bottom bracket shaft wears the hole out in the aluminum crank and it no longer fits snugly no matter how much you tighten it down.

Wrench support


impact wrenches are often misused by those who don’t know about their special needs. First of all, it is very important to be careful when tightening a nut or bolt with an impact wrench! Cross threading can occur very easily; a novice may also over-torque a bolt or a nut if they don’t know when to stop. To prevent such problems, always be sure to hand-tighten every nut or bolt before using the impact wrench; if you try to start the nut or bolt with the impact wrench, you won’t be able to feel if the threads are crossed. If the impact wrench is not torque controlled – meaning it will stop when the nut or bolt is tightened to a certain torque – you will need to go slowly, and periodically check the torque value of the nut or bolt to make sure you haven’t tightened it too far.

CLUNKING NOISE FROM REAR AXLE


Problem I found: Clunk when driving over even small bumps.

If Grand Cherokee is 1999-2004, then check this: Above the differential is a wishbone cross member control arm. The cross member attaches to the frame in front of the rear axle (bolts through rubber bushings), and directly above the differential, at the apex of the cross member, is a ball joint. The ball joint assembly is a flange bolted atop the differential, with three bolts, and the ball joint pin protrudes from the flange through the cross member apex, with a nut atop the pin. Raise the frame slightly, and with a pry bar, pry above the flange, and below the cross member, very near the ball joint. If any motion is detected, then the ball joint is worn from the ball joint socket, or the nut is loose on the ball joint pin. If the nut is tight, then replace the ball joint. 2000 GC part number is 52088808AB, and is available from online sources or dealers. To replace this part, you'll probably need to remove the cross member, as the ball joint pin through the cross member is in a tight location, is tightly wedged into the cross member, and requires a special v-shaped puller to remove the pin from the cross member. If you don't have access to the puller tool, then remove the cross member for this operation. Raise vehicle slightly, under frame, in front of rear wheels. Unbolt the brake line and brake cable retainers from the cross member, then unbolt the flange from atop the differential. Then remove the two frame bolts and manipulate the cross member out of the vehicle, from above the differential.

With the cross member before you, support on blocks, loosen the ball joint nut somewhat, or remove it, and with a beater protective block, sledge out the pin from the cross member. Inspect the rubber bushings at this time. These bushings require an arbor press to remove/install, and the arbor press to install requires a spider so as to not rip the rubber bushing from either the bushing shell or center spool. The press spider is a 4-point tool you can make up from a piece of aluminum.

Bolt the new ball joint flange atop the differential, using blue thread locker, and torque the bolts to 100 ft-lb, cheater pipe useful here.

Replace the cross member to the frame, and install the two frame bolts, finger tight. Pull the member apex down onto the ball joint pin, and run the nut down. Using a box end wrench, hold the pin from rotation while tightening down the nut. Torque the nut to 100 ft-lb. Tighten the frame attachment bolts to 100 ft-lb, and reinstall the brake cable and brake line retainers. Do not over tighten these retainer bolts, as they are passing only through the sheet steel side of the cross member. Take care to not strip the sheet metal threadings. Lower vehicle and remove jack.
