Re: 95 corolla harmonic balancer
It's a pain to fix. U do have to replace the entire harmonic balancer. For a description of what is involved, go to autozone website, enter your vehicle info, click on products and how to, then the letter H for harmonic balancer. Good luck!!! Curt

The harmonic balancer is a sttel ring attached to the center section with a compressed rubber sleve. When the rubber gets oil soaked it swells and starts to fail - wobble. This is amplified by the high tension of the sepentine belt. Fix for it - replace the harmonic balancer. Before it comes off leaving uou stranded
due to the "bushing" built into a harmonic balancer they can at times wobble a little, as long as the pulley guides the belt in a straight path to the next pulley in line, however the tensioner shouldn't Jump,, does it spin freely when nothing is attached to it< it could be worn and as it heats up tightens up,, I'd replace it
no. there should not be any wobble to your harmonic balancer pulley! any wobble to the bottom pulley,means it's out of balance. either a belts too tight,or a harmonic balancer bolts loose. the other belts contribute to the wobble once it begins. check the tourque on the harmonic balancer bolt. it should be about 180 footlbs thank you for choosing fixya.com.
First check your wiring, they are notorious for brittle and shorted harness'. If the sensor was new and was installed correctly, and wiring looks good... the crank pulley and harmonic balancer might need to be replaced. The problem: some of those pulley/balancers after time develop a wobble that affects the air gap causing your erratic drivability issues.
Maybe, you would have to remove the belts and then take a look at all the pulleys, it could be a pulley or a bad waterpump, or even something in the timing belt, like a timing belt pulley or tensioner pulley or waterpump,the best way to find out is to remove all the belts and then start the motor and listen for the noise, if the noise is still there with the belts removed then its something in the timing belt, but is the noise goes away then its something with the belts a pulley or a alternator, you would have to inspect all pulley and the acc, hope this helps,
yes make sure your lug nuts are all tight and the wheels are seated properly on the hubs, if they are tight bring the car to a tire shop and have them balance the two front tires, this will tell you if you have a bent wheel please rate -jeff
