Check that you have not damaged the crank position sensor or disconnected the wires to it . Check the air gap and the rotor for dirt and any thing that will prevent the sensor from working correctly.

Serpentine belt keeps coming off. does harmonic balancer keep it on. how do you change it


Make sure you have the right size belt. If it's old then replace it. Then make sure you run it correctly or it can slip off. If it still slips off then check all your pulleys for chips or wobble before you replace any pulleys. I hope this will be some simple help for you.

Tip

Replacing the Crankshaft and Camshaft sensors on a 1991 and later Buick Park...


If your car is misfiring in a rhythmical pattern when you first start it up for the day or dieing when engine is hot, it could mean your Camshaft or Crankshaft sensors need replacement.

Important, disconnect negative cable from the battery before doing any work on electrical system. Wear safety goggles.

Tools recommended:
Break Bar, Torque Wrench, ratchet driver and a full metrics ratchet socket set, one Q tip, large straight blade screwdriver, ratchet extension and adapters if needed.

First we'll start with the easiest and cheapest of the two sensors.

Replacing the camshaft sensor:

The camshaft sensor is located on the right side of the engine, behind the water pump pulley.

1. Loosen the screws to the water pump pulley with a breaker bar before removing the serpentine belt. Always turn counter clockwise to loosen.

2.Remove the serpentine belt via the belt tension-er.

3.Use a regular ratchet driver to finish removing the belt pulley from the water pump.

4.Remove the bolt holding the camshaft sensor in place and disconnect electrical connector. Secure the connector with a clothes pin so you don't lose it down in the engine compartment. Clean around the sensor to avoid getting dirt in the engine.

5. Pull the camshaft sensor straight out with a slight twisting motion.

6. Lightly lubricate the O-Ring on the new sensor with fresh motor oil, and install in the engine.

7. installation is the reverse of removal.

Crankshaft
Sensor:

1. Jack up the front passenger side of the car and safely support it on jack-stands.

2.Remove the tire, remove the inner tire well splash guard cover.

3.Before removing serpentine belt, loosen the center bolt on the harmonic balancer/vibration dampener. (crankshaft pulley)

4. Remove serpentine belt via the belt tensioner.

5.Finish loosening and remove the bolt from the harmonic balancer.
Have an assistant help you, using care not to let the weight of the harmonic balancer rest on the bolt as it can be damaged. Gently pry it of with a straight blade screwdriver. Leave the woodruff key in the crankshaft. Use care to not damage the crankshaft during removal as oil leakage could result. Mark the relationship between the crankshaft and the pulley, so you will be able to line the pulley up just right during re -installation.

6. Disconnect the electrical connector from the crankshaft sensor, secure the connector with clothes pin and loosen the bolts holding the sensor pedestal in place.

7.Separate the old sensor from the pedestal, and install the new sensor, just the same way the old sensor came out. Using the suggested crankshaft sensor alignment tool on the back of the harmonic balancer, making sure the fins on the harmonic balancer pass through the sensor's slot and don't hit it. If any fins on the back side of the harmonic balancer are bent, damaged, or missing, replace the harmonic balancer assembly.

Installation is the reverse of removal. It is imperative the crankshaft sensor be aligned properly before engine start up to avoid damage. Use care not to over tighten bolts during installation. Always tighten to manufacturer's recommended torque.

My crank pulley is loose on 2009 jeep Cherokee how do I tighten


There is one bolt in center of pulley/harmonic balancer. Sounds like the harmonic balancer has started going bad..if bolt in center of pulley is loose...which is fairly uncommon tighten which you just tighten Iike any other bolt. If it is tight then you will need the replacement. Replacement is a good bit more involved. Radiator has to be removed, special tool, harmonic balancer pulley remover is required..it will remove pulley. Then you line up pulley with keyway..tap on with rubber hammer until pulley is on far enough for bolt to be started..tighten the bolt and it pulls the pulley all the way into place.

It sounds like a lifter i was told it was the harmonic balancer by several people i replaced it car stick making ticking noise and picks up speed slow


I am curious why they said harmonic balancer and you replaced it, there is a crank sensor near the harmonic balancer was it rattling or loose they have a tendency to get loose,the harmonic is the big main pulley when that breaks because it is vulcanized then yes it tick and your car looses power.You check sparkplugs for being loose and not being tighten up,check the air filter too,I am sticking with the Harmonic balancer this time remove the drive belt but dont do it too long or it will overheat just for 2 minutes maximum see if the noise goes away. 2 minutes only battery wont charge also

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.
