SOURCE: Harmonic balancer for 1999 dodge ram 1500

well if i remember correctly that fan clutch is reverse threads so in other words to loosen it you'll have to turn your wrench clockwise. they do this cuz the rotation of the fan will tighten itself onto the water pump. anyway what i do is leave the serpentine belt on the the pulleys and that will kinda hold them steady whilst you put the "special" wrench on the clutch and pop it loose you'll prolly need a cheater bar to make things easier but not too much or you'll overcome the traction of the belt and it will just slip.

SOURCE: 1993 Geo Prizm Lsi Harmonic Balancer

Yes a harmanic balancer from tha corolla is the same thing. I had to do the same thing with my 95 geo. It works out to be a lot cheaper buying for a toyota than a geo.

I have a '94 Tempo, it had a "ticking" sound. It was the "harmonic balancer" (crankshaft pulley) a local mechanic changed it for $60, the part cost me $120 (I work for a Ford dealership) $180 without employee discount. you can get one for much less at a junkyard if you can find one. Good luck, Sean

I have been told that a 1999 Chevy Cavalier needs the harmonic balancer replaced. Is the repair worth the cost?

Hello Barbette,

The harmonic balancer is basically a counterweight attached to the front of the engines crankshaft. The balancer has a rubber cushion that could fail although I would suspect that would be a very rare occurrence.

I think it would be worth it, to get a second opinion on this diagnosis.

What is yhe ckp sensor on a 1999 ford windstar

The CKP sensor is actually the Crankshaft Position Sensor. It is responsible for ignition timing. When each piston reaches the position for firing, the CKP sensor informs the engine control module. The engine control module then responds by sending a signal to the ignition coil to fire the corresponding spark plug for that piston. If the sensor is defective typically you will have a no start condition for the engine, but the engine will still turn over when you try to start it.
It is located on the front of the engine next to the harmonic balancer. You should see a plug connected to it.

It is best to replace the harmonic balancer. Repairing it will only be a temporary fix and will more than likely cause damage when it breaks. Go ahead and be safe by replacing with a new balancer.

Where is the crank sensor located on a 1999 oldsmobile intrigue 3.5 engine???? easy to replace or not...

usually all crankshaft sensors are located right next to the main drive pulley (Harmonic balancer). As far as being easy is concerned some are not so easy as some require the removal of the harmonic balancer to get to it.. but you might be lucky Gm is pretty good at making the Crankshaft sensor accessible without removing the harmonic balancer.
