I have a 2001 2500HD and when it first started the lights would go out when you moved the steering column up, now you have to move it up and down to even get them to come on and while driving down the road they will go off if you hit a pot hole or any sort of bump.

How do I get the pullies off the crank on a 94 Toyota truck? The engine is getting water in the oil and a mechanic said the water may be coming into the oil inside the timing cover. He said the timing chain may have cut a hole through the water line. I was trying to go inside the cover, but can't get the pullies off the crank. I thought I might pull the oil pan since I need to clean in there anyway to keep the engine from turning.


Do you have the crank pulley bolt loose? To loosen it, pull the starter and wedge something against the ring gear teeth on the flywheel-I often use a piece of wood in there, although a large screwdriver or prybar would also work. Put a socket on th ... Cars & Trucks
