It would be my best guess that the retaining bolt could be loose. If it is then you will want to make sure the crankshaft is not damaged, If the crank is ok, then tighten the bolt and see if it still wables. If so your pulley has wabbled long enough to eat the inside out. You will have to get another one.
I hope this takes care of your problem.

I need to replace the water pump pully on my 4.9 is this difficult


Hello: That is not difficult to replace the pulley. If the pulley wobbles it is not the pulley.... The shaft bearing may be bad and that would make the pulley wobble. The pulley is held on with three bolts that have a 13mm head. If after removing the pulley you can move the shaft up and down you need a water pump.

How do i know if i have my timing chain on correct?


okay first you make sure the timing marks on the pullys or gears are lineing up also you find #1 cylinder pull out spark plug place a long phillips head scew driver into the hole turn the main crank it should rise and fall get the lower part of the engine to where the scew driver stops rising and right before it falls you should be at top dead center on the lower part of the engine. turn the cam shaft till the timing mark on the pully or gear is at top dead center (TDC). but you should have timing marks on the crank shaft pully and the cam shaft gear or pully I recomend a chiltons or haynes manual so you can locate these marks.

1999 ford ranger timing marks 2.5


One is on the crank shaft pully (for TDC). It is a line, scribed on the pully, that alligns to a pointer on the plastic timing belt cover. The second is on the cam shaft pully. It can be accessed by removing the rubber inspection plug on the timing belt cover. The third is on the auxillary shaft (oil pump) and is also accessed through an inspection plug on the timing belt cover.

On the cam and oil pump pullies, the diamond aligns to the diamond and the triangle aligns to the triangle (the pullies have both). These should be perfectly aligned when the crankshaft pully line is at 0 deg TDC. If you can't see the marks through the inspection port while the crank is at 0 TDC, you are 180 degrees out - turn the crank one more time.

Pulley has problem, but what part is it?


On that truck I believe they only came with a 4 cylinder 2.0 liter engine. if you are seeing the pully all the way at the bottom of the engine, that is called the Harmonic Ballancer / Crank Shaft Pully. They sometimes will shift due to age, if there is a leak . they are made up of 3 parts 2 steel parts with a rubber piece in between them bonded to both steel pieces. the rubber can come unbonded for meny reasons. replace it or it can cause much dammage if it comes completely apart.

Antifreeze drips from crank shaft pully area when running.


it's probably not dripping from the crankshaft... it would drip from the water pump just on top of it...

to check if it is done, take a flashlight and spot on top of the water pump. there should be a hole on top of it behind the pulley...

if it is damp, the pump is gone....

if not it might leak from the gasket...

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.
