During a trip to the lake on Saturday, I pulled off an exit in my 84 300D-T. The alternator light came on, power steering stopped working, and AC quit. Pulled QUICKLY into a parking lot, and checked the engine. The crankshaft pulley wasn't turning. If I help it, it tries to catch, but I have kept the car turned off. Unfortunately I was in the country, and had to have it towed to an import shop, well, I don't know exactly how to get back to it. He told me the crankshaft bolt is cross threaded, and they are having trouble getting it out. Apparantly the shop that replaced the Crankshaft seal cross threaded.
Can this be rethreaded? Am I looking at another car? Guess I'll start shopping. Any suggestions appreciated.
