Check the crankshaft position sensor, it's on a small bracket on the front of the Aj6 engine, you may have disturbed it or your new balancer may be a different diameter and the gap between the pulley and the sensor is incorrect or the 1996 sensor may have a different position to the 2000. This sensor controls the ignition timing.

SOURCE: 1996 xj6 jaguar wont start

Need to check for fuel and spark
You can crack the fuel line connector at the back of the rail on the drivers side to see if you are getting fuel or have someone listen in the trunk for a humming/buzzing sound when you first turn the ignition on, if you do hear this then the fuel pump is probably working so it would be the crank sensor that has failed. If you have 1/4 or less of a tank of gas, check to make sure you actually have gas as these cars have faulty fuel sendor units which will stick on a 1/4 of a tank.

SOURCE: engine turns over wont start

I take it your vehicle is fuel injected, if so you might need to run a diagnostic on your car to make sure there are no fault codes registering that might prevent the vehicle from starting.

I have a 2000 pontiac Bonneville sle and it was running fine it stalled yesterday on me n after a bit started back up and ran fine the rest of the night, This morning It started fine and then 15 mins...


I had the same problem with my 2000 Bonneville SLE and I replaced the crank shaft sensor and it solved the problem. The crank shaft sensor is located behind the harmonic balancer. You have to take the balancer off to get to the part. You will need a puller to get it off. You will also have to take the fly wheel cover off and hold the fly wheel when you remove the nut from the front of balancer.

I have the distributor out of a 2000 Blazer with 4.3L engine. Manual says to line up 2 marks on harmonic balancer with timing marks on front of engine with cylinder 1 at tdc on compression stroke. Can you...


its real simple on the harmonic balancer the outer ring has a line in it on the front of engine there is a timing tab that hangs over the harmonic balancer line up the line with the correct timing degree 4 6 or 8 but to check for compression stroke number 1 piston has to be up and both valves have to be closed hold your finger over the number 1 spark plug hole and have someone tap the key till air blows your finger off the hole line up timing mark on balancer it should be close now you could use a socket on balancer bolt now drop in distributor lining up rotor with the number 1 spark plug wire rotor should point towards number 1 spark plug on engine driver side front distributor wont be all the way down because it has to drop into oil pump shaft just turn engine over with a ratchet on harmonic balancer bolt one or two revolutions and distributor will drop right in to oil pump then install retainer and bolt for distributor then use a timing light while engine cranks to get timing close to start it then time it correctly after it starts

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!
