I have been told that a 1999 Chevy Cavalier needs the harmonic balancer replaced. Is the repair worth the cost?

Hello Barbette,

The harmonic balancer is basically a counterweight attached to the front of the engines crankshaft. The balancer has a rubber cushion that could fail although I would suspect that would be a very rare occurrence.

I think it would be worth it, to get a second opinion on this diagnosis.

I have a 1999 chevy malibu with knocking noise ina 3.1l v6 motor.

Sounds like you didn't put the pushrods back in the proper locations. There are two different lengths in this engine and you may have one backwards

How to take off harmonic balancer on 1999 chevy malibu V6

There is a tool made for that specific job. Many of the larger parts stores will loan or rent you one. It is called a harmonic balancer puller. (fancy name huh?) They aren't too expensive to buy but unless you do a lot of engine work it's likely not something you will use often.

Belt keep slipping off 2000 malibu chevy

Check the harmonic balancer. It's the pulley thats on the bottom of the engine in the center. Look at it with a flash light. The face of it should be flat, if it is coming apart you will see that where the belt rides has moved out away from the engine.
