The pulley on the crankshaft is called a vibration damper or harmonic balancer. The inner hub is attached to the outer pulley by a section of rubber to damp out the vibrations of the crankshaft. If the rubber deteriorates, it can separate and allow the outer pulley section to move in or out. I suspect this is what happened and you need to replace the entire crankshaft pulley.

SOURCE: broken crankshaft pulley bolt on

The only possibility I can suggest is that which is called and 'Easyout.' These are available at parts stores and come (normally) with a sized drill and a special bit with left-hand threads.
First a hole is drilled with the provided drill bit, then the removal bit is screwed into the new hole and turned counter-clockwise which further inserts the removal bit and, if the removal bit does not snap, the broken threaded shank should back out.
I would suggest soaking the broken part with penetrating lubricant first and allowing it time to seep into the threads of the broken bolt.

How to replace timing belt, i am confuse whith sprocket marks


Before taking your old timing belt off, your should rotate the engine in a clockwise direction (temporarily slide the crankshaft pulley back on and turn it with a strap wrench) until you see the alignment marker on the face of the camshaft pully line up with the raised marks on the valve block.

The timing marker for the crankshaft is a half moon groove on the outer diameter of the crankshaft gear. Ishould be positoned at 3:00 and be aligned with a mark on the oil pump. When installing the timing belt, there is an alignment stripe on it that should align with a slotted mark on the crankshaft gear that is positioned at 9:00, opposite of the groove at 3:00.

How do you reset the pulley on the crack shaft


OK. WELL SORRY TO SAY BUT IT SHOULDNT HAVE DONE THAT BECAUSE THE BOLT SHOULD HAVE HELD IT IN. IF THE BOLT ISNT LOOSE U HAVE ONE OF TWO PROBLEMS. EITHER THE CRANKSHAFT IS BAD AND U HAVE MOVEMENT INTERNALLY OR THE BUSHING/BALANCER ON THE PULLEY IS DEFECTIVE WHICH WOULD MEAN THE PULLEY HAS TO BE REPLACED. EVEN WITH THE BOLT OUT 99% OF CRANKSHAFT PULLEYS ARE PRESSED ON.

I changed idler pulley and tension pulley with belt on chevy tahoe 00 bu still whining


what kind of belt did you use
I found that the Goodyear Gator belt usually resolves this noise as compared to some cheap store brand belts

second...did you test ALL the pulleys when you had the belt off

maybe your noise is coming from a different pulley

I am planning to replace the timing belt on my daughter's 95 Corolla and was wondering what I need to align where before removing the belt eg How do I find TDC? Camshaft pulley and Crankshaft pulley...


TDC is top dead center/ remove spark plug on cylinder no. 1/ rotate the crankshaft pulley using a socket wrench and power handle and check if the piston on your cylinder no. 1 reach the top center that is TDC/ remove timing belt cover and locate a synchronized marking on your camshaft and crankshaft pulley/ remove old timing belt/ install a new one but make sure that the mark on your camshaft and crankshaft is perfectly synchronized before putting the cover/ manually rotate the crankshaft pulley again and see if it rotates 360 deg. freely then you can be sure you did the job correctly.

NEED TO TIME CAMSHAFTS PLEASE EXPLAIN. THANKS


Flats of all four cams on the ends opposite gears need to be parallel to top of head where cam cover bolts on. Dark links on transmission side of cam gears should line up with pins at 12:00 positions on cams. Dark links on pulley side of gears should line up with marks on intake gears. Dark link on balancer shaft gear lines up with tooth at 5:00 position. Dark link on crankshaft gear lines up at 4:00 position.

Here is a diagram of the pulley side marks.

Here is what the marks look like on the tranmission side of the gears on the front head:
