I have this dang coolant leak that is driving me crazy and I am too cheap to take it in to a mechanic. I have replace all the usual items, pump, all hoses, etc. It has stopped those leaks, not I am leaking again. Looks like I the gasket on the Timing Chain cover died, probably when I did the pump?

Since I removed the water pump, it leaks more, at the seal, which tells me I am on the right track (this round)

Anyway, my delima is removing the Harmonic Balancer. Any tricks on the loosing the bolt? I have soaked with WD40, beat with a hammer and so far no go. I do have a rod that I am using to prevent it from turning. Am I correct in that it is a normal thread and not reversed? Either way I tried both directions.

:help:

Finally got it. Took 2 days of soaking with WD40 and a bigger pry bar.

Looking at the Timing cover seal, i am confident that this will finally stop the coolant leak.

I was lucky, I was able to use an impact wrench on mine! Whizzed it right off!
