Best Answer

Remove the entire engine, strip it down to pretty well the block and start all over.

Replacing the crank shaft in any internal combustion is pretty much the same. It entails removing the engine, having machine work done on it, new bearings on the connecting rods, etc. It's not a job for a DIYer unless you have a lot of time and a good working knowledge of engines. The tolerances and very tight and specific.

The cylinders may need to be rehoned or even cut and opened up, new pistons and rings installed etc. It is not for the faint at heart!

What revolutions occur in the movement of a car?

The Crank shaft turns and causes the cam shaft to turn, the pumps to turn, the alternator to turn, the transmission gears to turn, the transmission causes the drive shaft to turn, the drive shaft causes the differential to turn (in rear wheel drive models) this turns the axles and the axles turn the wheels. In a front wheel model, the transmission turns the axles shaft that turns the wheels. In a 4x4 the transmission splits to turn the front drive shaft and the rear drive shaft. (then the differential and the axles etc. The other thing that is counted is the steering wheel but it never really completes a whole revolution.
