Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
It wobbles so it needs replacing, what will happen if I continue to drive it this way ? And replacing it, is it as easy as just unbolting it and replacing it ? or is there timing marks and torque wrenches involved. And how do you lock the engine when loosing it?
There will be costly repairs if you do not replace the harmonic balancer( damage to the timing chain cover)
The job will be time consuming rather than difficult. You will need a 1/2 inch impact tool to undo the nut as there is no way of holding the crank to achieve loosing the nut by brute force. You will need a balancer puller to withdraw the balancer from the crankshaft There is only 1 way to put the balancer back on as the key will align everything. tighten using the impact tool. Replace the belt correctly

the torque is a 4 step process
1 torque all bolts to 22 ft/lbs
2 torque all bolts to 45 ft/lbs
3 recheck all bolts to 45 ft/lbs
4 torque bolts 1 thru 10 to 110 ft/lbs
bolt 11 to 100 ft/lbs
bolts 12 thru 14 to 110 ft/lbs
bolt #1 is the fourth bolt from the front on the passenger side....#2 is the fourth bolt on the drivers side then you continue in a clockwise order

each gear has a mark on it from the factory that line up with a corrrsponding mark on the engine some times they are hard to find but if you look hard enough you will find them they all must line up there is no margin for error or it will not start like now good luck Lindz
