      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 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.

      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)

      Using this: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Makita-...rive-Impact-Wrench-Tool-Only-XWT08Z/206637027

      That bolt popped off almost immediately without the slightest trouble.

      Betcha a million bucks that the liquid wrench pretreatment did absolutely nothing except waste time and make a mess.

      Wow, I didn't know Makita was also in the cordless high torque impact wrench business, very nice! Dewalt came up with these cordless high torque wrenches first, but currently, Milwaukee is the market leader. I hope that Dewalt would come up with a Flexvolt impact wrench and take the lead again.

      paulgoh: Thanks for this info. I ordered one yesterday. Ordered a battery charger separately on Amazon.
      Glad to help!

      I don't think you over prepped, what you did made the bolt a non-issue for you. If you hadn't prepped you would have ended up totally frustrated. Great job on getting that done and now you have a nice new tool for future jobs that was sort of free seeing you saved a bunch of money on the job. My cordless impact gun isn't as powerful as the ones listed but I use it quite often, I should have bought one sooner. Huge time saver.
