Crankshaft Bolt & Pulley Removal

I have a 2001 Sable with the 3.0 DOHC engine.

Does anyone know how to remove the single crankshaft pulley bolt? I guest the two more specific questions are:

Which direction do you turn the bolt to remove it?

and

How do you keep the crankshaft from turning while breaking the bolt free?

Thanks

I don't know if the crankshaft bolt is a righty-tighty,lefty-loosey or not. If the car is a straight drive you can put it in first or reverse and set brake.
If it is an automatic you'll have to improvise.

The crankshaft pulley bolt is a left hand thread, so righty loosey, lefty tighty. There is a Ford tool that locks to the teeth of the flexplate to hold the crankshaft from turning. You remove the plastic cover from the bellhousing to install the holder. Good luck!!! By the way, the crankshaft dampener bolt is a normal right hand thread.

By chance do you know what the ford tool is or is it something like

I've only been able to find this Lisle tool but don't know if it's what I need.

Nope, the Ford tool is a square block and has teeth on it.
