I over-prepped for the crank bolt due to horror stories. First thing I did was open up that wheel well and spray it with liquid wrench. Normally I use PB blaster, but allegedly liquid wrench is slightly more effective, so I went with that.My two cents is that if it is still running after 5 mins...not smoke, crazy noise, cel on or seized engine...you are good to go. Oh and something important....not piece left jejej. Keep an eye on the coolant while it is still on...so that you can add extra on the reservoir. John will be sending you a diploma with the timing belt certification. Good job, i'll do mine too...How hard was to remove that crank pulley bolt?...
I let that simmer for a good hour, hitting it again at the 30 minute mark.
Then I hit it with the super socket (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00RGNCV1U)

That bolt popped off almost immediately without the slightest trouble.
