When i went to change my timing cover on my 3400 i couldnt get the crank pulley to turn, although im not 100% sure if i used a bar or just a normal wrench to try it. If i cant get it loose with a bar should i maybe pop the spark plugs out and spray in some wd40 or maybe just try with the spark plugs out.

Is there any other ways of freeing it up? The engine is out of a 04 alero which had 30000km on it, so i dont think the engine had been sitting TOO long.

i can turn my motor over with a rachet, a j-bar should do it no problem. even with the plugs in there.

And grab a ratchet and a 15mm socket and start turning on the crank clockwise. Careful not to strip that bolt.
