    HI

    is this a known problem on these cars? I think I have the same problem...when I start my car, the engine starts but none of the pulley's rotate. I can easily pull on the belt (yes it is tightly on) and all the pulleys turn as well. I got under the car and noticed that when I pull on the belt the crankshaft "pulley" itself does not turn but where the belt "rides on" that turns freely.

    Basically I have the same question, how do I change it?



    Thanks

    Amer

I'm having trouble finding a crank shaft pulley for a 96 mercury sable


This is called a harmonic balancer and the purpose of the rubber is to allow the crankshaft power impulses to be cancelled out by the steel pulley bonded to the rubber . It will available as a genuine part and most good aftermarket shops and engine rebuild shops will have them in stock. All you may have to supply is the vin number of the vehicle or the engine family letters of the plate

Need a diagram to replace the crank pulley on a 1990 Oldsmobile regency 98 3.8 liter


This is what I found on the 98 Regency instructions: Crankshaft Damper REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the belts from the crankshaft pulley.
  3. Remove the crankshaft damper attaching bolt.
  4. Attach a suitable puller to the damper and remove the damper from the crankshaft. NOTE: On certain models, removal of the cooling fan, fan shroud or radiator may be necessary for clearance. WARNING
    DO NOT pry on the damper assembly to remove it from the vehicle or component damage will result. Remove the damper using a puller only.
  5. Installation is the reverse of removal. Torque the damper bolt to specification. Fig. 1: One example of a crankshaft damper puller tool 85843074.gif
    Fig. 2: Removing the crankshaft damper bolt 85843193.jpg Fig. 3: Do not attempt to pry on the damper to remove it from the crankshaft, use a puller only 85843194.jpg Fig. 4: Removing the damper from the crankshaft 85843195.jpg Fig. 5: When installing the damper, thread the bolt by hand first to prevent cross-threading 85843196.jpg prev.gif next.gif

Where is the crankshaft positioning sensor on a 2001 mercury sable


on the engine block by the pulley:

f051b5a.gif
It is the plug-looking part with the wires.

The Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor is a variable reluctance sensor that uses a trigger wheel to induce voltage. The CKP sensor is a fixed magnetic sensor mounted to the engine block and monitors the trigger or "pulse" wheel which is attached to the crank pulley/damper.

Need to know what fires coil 1995 mercury sable both wires to coil have power when key is turned on car cranks no spark from coil new coil what gives the coil extra power to fire


what engine? 3.0L 2 Valve? 4 Valve?
3.4L SHO engine?

The PCM (engine computer) fires the coils, but it is never the cause of a problem. I suspect it is the crankshaft position sensor on the front of the engine by the crank pulley. easy to change.

Crankshaft Position Sensor The crankshaft position sensor (CKP sensor) (6C315) is a variable reluctance sensor triggered by a 36-minus-1 tooth trigger wheel located on the crankshaft pulley and damper. The signal generated from the crankshaft position sensor is called the crankshaft position (CKP) signal, which provides base timing and crankshaft speed (rpm) information to the ignition control module (ICM) (12K072). Base timing is set at 10±2 degrees before top dead center (BTDC) AND IS NOT ADJUSTABLE. The powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) will use this information with the spark advance information to determine ignition coil (12029) turn on or turn off time.
