SOURCE: do 4runners crank pulleys go bad

Yes, in most cases you can. The crankshaft pulley is bolted to the front of the crank shaft by either 1 large bolt and thick washer, or by 4 small bolts around the edge of inside of the pulley, depending on model.

Remove all belts that are driven by the crankshaft pully and then grasp the pully to see if it is loose in some way.

To remove the large bolt(if that's what you have), will require the use of a strap wrench which can be gotten for the free loan-A-tool from Autozone.

Only if the end of the crankshaft was damaged in some way would you have to replace the crankshaft.


If you would like to contact me again about this or other problems, feel free to do so.

SOURCE: my crankshaft pulley wobbles and makes a weird noise

Hi there;
Somethimes this happens over time. It is usualy caused by an oil leak at or above the pully causing the rubber in the "hamonic balancer" which is part of that pully system to fail. If you don't have it repaired you will find the pully will wear through the cover behind it. So be sure to get it repaired.

Hope this helps, Good luck.
Farrout.

SOURCE: Humming noise and wobbling pulley 1995 Corolla

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,

make sure the pulley bolt is tight then check the pulley for being bent. if these 2 things are good then you may have a bent crankshaft at the pulley end or worn crank bearing causing it to wobble.

Loud rattling sound top of engine near or below the alternator when idling, goes away if accelerator is pressed


Hello: Remove the serpentine belt, see if the waterpump pulley wobbles/makes noise when you spin it. If thats not it then start the engine, belt still off see if noise is there also while engine is running see if vthe crankshaft pulley wobbles. Also check the A/C compressor pulley (engine off, belt off) spin it by hand and check for noise and wobble. If all the previous is ok then it could be the balance shaft front bearing and or the timing chain.

Was the timing belt replaced recently? If your crank pulley/harmonic balancer is wobbling, it is probably loose. Do not run the engine, if this part falls out, it will cause more damage.

Check all of the accessories that run off the belt. some may have loose or bent pulleys or the acessory itself may have come loose. Be careful to route the belt exactly as shown too. Tighten up or replace your wobbly pulleys.
