Testimonial: "Thank you, my Ex-husband mentioned that too. He said he will go with me tomorrow to check it out. As for how I knew mine was going out, the loud noise coming from below and then the crack across the wheel. It is possible that he didn't put it in."

The mechanic who installed harmonic balance more likely hammered in back on.when you reinstall harmonic balancer back in place you can use the harmonic balancer bolt to pull in back in place make sure pulley keyway line up right a little bit engine oil inside balancer and a little oil on harmonic balancer bolt as you tighten harmonic balancer bolt it will draw pulley back on crankshaft when you get to torque requirements the crankshaft bolts will become tight and the pulley cant go any further if you hammer on pulley you can go in too much damage crankshaft pulley and crankshaft sensor.

The harmonic balancer controls the triggering of the combined crankshaft/camshaft sensor. This controls ignition plus fuel injection. Replace the balancer and adjust the sensor or replace it if damaged.

I have a Kia Sportage 4wd 2002 with under 60000 miles. I lost power steering and when I took to mechanic they said I threw a belt(which they replaced with great difficulty) due to a bent or warped harmonic...


I got stuck paying dealer for new crank pulley not harmonic balancer as mechanic said. I am driving as little as possible until part comes in and can br put on. Hopefully, I will not damage the crank shaft or throw a belt.
