Is the crankshaft bolt on a 1992 Camry 2200 cc right or left hand threaded?
Having trouble getting the crankshaft bolt off so I can change the timing belt. Should I be turning the
bolt left as usual or right as on some bolts?
Left to loosen. They are high torque so spray it with penetrating oil to reduce the chance of snapping the head off.
You can brace your socket wrench against something and then briefly crank the engine with the starter. The bolt will be loose. I did it on my 1996 Camry LE 2200 cc 5S-FE engine. The engine will be trying to turn the wrench clockwise.
I always use air if locked up Take starter off Lock up there
