There is a panel inside the wheel well that you can take off that gives you perfect access to the harmonic balancer. A special tool is required. i had my dad make one because he has access to whatever he needs at the factory. but you can get them at the dealer. i have no clue how much they cost. I can't see any way of doing it without the special tool. after you get the tool its pretty simple to get off. it takes alot of force to break the bolt loose though. i used the handle off my jack as a cheater bar. hope this helps...

Once the plastic well covers are removed,a large strap wrench can be used to hold whats left of the balancer from spinning and a breaker bar with a 7/8 socket works well with a well sprayed bolt.it took me hours but with pb blaster spray i got it.

It should slide right off just remove the 4 12 ml bolts you dont have to remove the 22ml it holds the tbelt pulley only but you will have to remove the engine mount to let the engine drop so you can remove it from the car so have a jack handy to move the motor with

Reinstallation of harmonic balancer


you can line it up as good as you can with a dead blow hammer. make sure there is a small amount of oil on the inside of the balancer surface. then install the crank bolt and slowly zip it down with an impact wrench.

99 trooper 3.5 v6 , believe balancer pulley sheared the key.pulley is wobbling and motor knocking like rod knock.is this a zero tolerance engine and are they known for this problem.sounds like motor is out...


IT is a zero tolerance engine which means that if you break a timing belt there will be valve damage. Check the harmonic balancer and if there is a rubber insert between the pulley and the crank shaft hub then replace the harmonic balancer as this rubber has failed and the pulley will fall off. If the key has sheared as you suspect there would be no engine noise as the engine would not be running. Fix the balancer first then check for the noise as it may be just the balancer

The big outside pulley on the harmonic balancer fell off


The Harmonic balancer is held on to the front of the crank shaft with a bolt. there are pullys pressed onto the harmonic balancer in rubber.If more pulleys are needed for more accessories they are bolted to the harmonic balancer.

Does the crankshaft have a woodruff key for the harmonic balancer?


hi this depends on what harmonic balancer you are inquiring about, normal balancers do have a woodruff key,but the pulley type harmonic balancer only bolts to a cam hub on what ever it is connected to, such as water pump, etc etc... hope this helps

How do you replace the harmonic balancer pulley on the 2000 oldsmobile intrigue


The short answer to your question is:

1. Raise the car on the passenger side and remove the front wheel.
2. Remove the belts on the harmonic balancer.
3. Remove the retaining bolt.
4. With a puller, jack the harmonic balancer off of the crank shaft. You can rent a puller at your local auto parts store. It is easiest to access the harmonic balancer through the fender, hence the need to remove the wheel.
5. You should also consider replacing the seal around the harmonic balancer to minimize the possibility of a leak later.
6. Install the new harmonic balancer and tighten the retaining bolt to the specified torque (I don't know this off the top of my head).
7. Replace the belts and wheel, and voila...mission accomplished.

This was a short answer to your question. You may wish to consult a repair manual for illustrations, torque specifications, additional instructions, etc. This job is not for the faint of heart. Good luck!

Where is the crank sensor located on a 1999 oldsmobile intrigue 3.5 engine???? easy to replace or not...


usually all crankshaft sensors are located right next to the main drive pulley (Harmonic balancer). As far as being easy is concerned some are not so easy as some require the removal of the harmonic balancer to get to it.. but you might be lucky Gm is pretty good at making the Crankshaft sensor accessible without removing the harmonic balancer.

Balancer pulley turns 1/8 turn before crank


Remove yonder pulley and you will find the bolt holes are elongated. get another from a scrapyard (take the bolts too.) replace and you should be fine.
