    That bolt is torqued to a substantial amount. You will need leverage on it to loosen it correctly. I very much doubt it is left hand thread. You may have to lock rotation of engine somehow and use a cheater bar or remove radiator and maybe the a/c condensor for room to alllow an air impact to get in there.
