SOURCE: 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.

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.

Crank shaft pulley not aligned


You may have a bad bearing or bushing in one of the idler pulleys, the belt tensioner, or the alternator. Normally the crankshaft pulley aligns unless somebody changed timing gears or the pulley itself and it's not all the way in.

2002 grand prix does the crank pulley has play


A gap? As in where? The pulley should be firmly affixed to the crankshaft, and have no movement or play whatsoever. The crankshaft bolt and washer on the pulley's center should be on and very tight. Likely it is a bad tensioner that is worn.

Belt wont stop squealing


Make sure all the pulleys are lined up and the automatic belt tensioner is not off to the side due to a bad pulley bearings. Also check the crank pulley for walking outward and throwing the belt alignment off. If the crank shaft pulley appears to have moved out you will need to replace the crankshaft harmonic damper

I have a 2003 buick redevous 3.4 the tensionor went out and had to replace the idler pulleys,since i have done that my belt keeps tracking half way off the crank pulley any sugestions


This sounds like a bad crank pulley or the wrong pulley was installed or installed incorrect, you will need to remove the belt and check the alignment of the pulleys, check the tensioner also. most times a bad tensioner will cause this problem. the alignment will be of a little, it doesnt take much to have belt ride off the pulley, take a good look and double check pulleys that were replaced. good day.

Bottem pulley on engine block is making noise, I think the bearings are going out. What is this pulley attached to and can it be lubricated?


the bottom pulley is the crank pulley. It is attached to the crank shaft. It has two parts, an inner and an outer that are joined together with a rubber isolator. Over time the rubber breaks down and the inner part part of the puller will start to rotate independently from the outer part of the pulley creating a unigue clacking noise.

To solve this you'll need a standard crank pulley puller set. You'll remove the crank bolt and then use the pulley puller to pull the crank pulley off of the crank shaft. The install the new pulley making sure to torque the crank pulley bolt to the proper spec.

it is not the crank pulley it is the water pump above the crank pulley, the coolant runs down and looks like it is from the pulley area.

My alternator belt broke i fixd it now my car wont start it cranks but sounds funny


I am not sure where the crank position sensor is on your car but when the alternator belt broke on my Buick it trashed the crank sensor that is located next to the crank shaft pulley. The computer needs the crank senor to know the position of the crank shaft. If the sensor is bad the car will not start.

1991 Buick Regal will not start


Chech to see if you're gettin a signal from the crankshaft position sensor located behind the crank pulley. If no signal, you have either a bad sensor or a bad crank pulley. There is a reluctor ring on the pulley that separates and goes bad. If you have a good square wave signal from the the crank sensor it's probably going to be the computer. I've replaced a lot of them. They do really wierd things when they start to go. Check all of your grounds first. Also, while the car is running, shake and pull on the wiring harnesses for the computer. I've seen on a few cars where a wire or 2 will go bad and cause and occational short.
