The 22-RE engine is found in Toyotas and has been in service for many years. The crankshaft retaining bolt is a standard-thread bolt with 215 foot pounds of torque. The bolt is not accessible without removing the radiator and fan assembly. A heavy-duty impact socket should be used with the amount of torque necessary to remove the bolt. A standard socket will usually break with this amount of torque.
