    i need to change my timing belt and am having trouble pulling off the crank pulley. i tried putting the car in gear and it still just spins. is there some special trick to keep it from spinning?

    Try getting a buddy to hold down the brakes while you do it. Use a breaker bar and a pipe.

    The easiest way would be to get your hands on an impact gun.

    i didnt think of that. when i tried, i didnt notice if the rotor was spinning. will this work even if the timing belt is off?

    Sometimes you just can't do it. I had my dad hold the flywheel with a crow bar and I still couldn't get mine off.

    what year car and how long since the pulley bolt was last broken ? i tried removing a 90 integ that had never been removed and couldnt brought it to a shop who said it was screwed and the motor might as well get a new fucking crank! but thats my over toned story try a bigger impact or last resort use a breaker bar place it in the correct postion on the engine bay , crank ur car and use the engines own for to break it free only car for a second

    That is the STUPIDEST thing that I have EVER heard. Kid, stop typing. Uou aren't helping anything. If anything, you're going to contribute to someone's arm getting ripped off.

    1. Your friend is an idiot, and I'm gonna go ahead and say that if he gave you advice like that, he is NOT an ASE certified mechanic.

    2. You did not do that. You said earlier that you took it to a shop, and they told you it was screwed.

    3. I'll leave you the hell alone when you stop posting stupid/wrong/dangerous advice.

    4. I know my shit.

    5. I haven't tried stupid shit like that because I use something called 'the right way' to do stuff like that.

    Keep personal comments out of the tech forums.

    If you DID try this, obviously it didn't work, because as you said you took it to a shop and they told you it was screwed.

    You are not helping AT ALL, plus the kid already got his crank pulley off. Stop posting stuff that you don't know shit about.
