With the engine in the car how do you get the crankshaft pulley off
Expert:  Jerry replied 2 years ago.
I normally take the motor mount out and jack the engine up to get enough clearence. In the event that you still can't, then you try dropping it down far enough to get clearence to get the crank pulley off.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
So are you saying that the engine needs to come out of the car
Expert:  Jerry replied 2 years ago.
Not really. Of course, it would be very easy with the engine out of the car, but jack the engine up only means to jack the engine up.
Expert:  Jerry replied 2 years ago.
When you do jack up the engine, you want to use a block of wood so that the pan doesn't get any dents in it.
