Hi, assuming you have the 2.5 liter engine, your damper is integral to the pulley assembly as shown in the second figure below, so there is only one part involved. You can see an example of the part here:
If you look carefully at the pic below, you can see the rubber torus inside the pulley. The rubber is what fails and causes the pulley to wobble. You may need to borrow a puller to get the pulley off.

2.5L Engine
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Disconnect battery negative cable from remote negative terminal on shock tower and properly isolate to prevent accidental reconnection.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Belt splash shield Accessory drive belts. Refer to Belts. Crankshaft center bolt and remove crankshaft damper.


    Fig. Splash shield removal-2.5L engine


    Fig. Crank damper and bolt- 2.5L engine

To install:
  1. Clean crankshaft snout and crankshaft damper bore.
  2. Install or connect the following:

    Crankshaft damper. Crankshaft bolt and torque to 143 ft. lbs. (182 Nm) Accessory drive belts. Refer to Belts. Belt splash shield

So ummm when ur engine vibration dampner just goes flying from under the car, what do u suggest. and no im not getting rid of it lol. but how would that be possible to just rip off??? cuz it just happened...

sometimes the rubber bladder takes a dump and the outside of the pulley just comes off. if the whole pulley came off it sounds like the crank pulley bolt either was not tight or gone. if you recently had a timing belt replaced that might be what caused it.

Where is the crankshaft sensor on a 3.8L in a 97 buick lesaber

The sensor is located to the right of the crankshaft behind the vibration dampner (harmonic balancer). You will need a balancer puller and a special tool to space the new sensor correctly.
(can be done also with eye spacing, but the tool is recommended to ensure proper spacing as to prevent damage to new sensor and / or harmonic balancer.) You will also need a strap wrench to hold balancer pulley in place while removing and re-installing balancer to crankshaft bolt. (helper required)

Procedure for replacement:
Remove negative battery cable.
Set parking (emergency) brake.
Release tension on serpentine drive belt and remove belt from harmonic balancer pulley. ( large pulley at bottom of engine)
Break loose lug nuts on passenger side front tire, do not remove bolts yet.
Raise and support vehicle on passenger side, remove wheel.
Remove plastic splash guard (cover) from passenger side wheel well.
Remove dampner / balancer center retaining bolt (counterclockwise, it is torqued very tight.) Use a strap wrench around pulley and have a helper hold that in place while using a 1/2" breaker bar and socket to turn pulley bolt out of crankshaft. Be careful not to rotate engine in a counterclockwise direction while breaking the bolt loose.
Using balancer puller, remove dampner / balancer pulley from engine.
You will now see the crank sensor to the right of the crankshaft bolted to the timing cover.
Disconnect sensor wiring and remove retaining bolts, remove sensor.
Put new sensor in place and screw in bolts, do not tighten them yet.
Reconnect wiring to sensor.
Now use special tool to properly space sensor. If you cannot find one at the parts store, you can space the sensor with the balancer pully held in place (not installed yet) and space the sensor evenly with the veins on the hub of the balancer pulley. Take your time and be sure it is as evenly spaced as possible.
Tighten sensor bolts.
Clean balancer hub free of any oil and dirt deposits using brake or carbeurator cleaner.
Reinstall balancer to crankshaft by tapping around the inner surface of pulley with a rubber hammer.
It is a press fit, so be sure you have it started evenly and progress slowly in a circular motion to ensure you are keeping it aligned straight with the crankshaft.
Reinstall balancer bolt using the same method as removal, torque bolt to 110 foot pounds, then tap around balancer again twice with rubber hammer, turn the engine 2 full revolutions clockwise using the balancer to crankshaft bolt, then tighten bolt an additional 1/4 turn.
Replace splash guard, put wheel on tightening lugs to finger tight and then wrench tight in a star pattern.
Lower vehicle until wheel makes contact with floor, tighten lug nuts to 115 foot pounds in a star pattern using a torque wrench.
Fully lower vehicle, remove jack.
Re-install serpentine drive belt
Re-connect negative battery cable.

End of procedure....Hope that helps!.....Mike

Location of the water pump

Its in with the timing belt
The pump cost about $90cnd. you don't have to replace the timing belt if it is in good condition although I would recommend it. First you must remove the passenger side front wheel, and the splash guard. Then you must take of the accesory drive belts. The one on the alternator, and the one on the powersteering/air conditioner. Then you must take off the timing belt cover, mark your timing, remove the tensioner and the belt the camshaft gears the idler pulley and the crank shaft dampner. Then the rear timing belt cover comes off and you can access the water pump. Install the new pump and reassemble. Make sure the crank dampner and the camshaft sprokets are seated ALL THE WAY BACK, (or you'll cause yourself all kinds of problems.) When the timing belt goes back on make sure you line up the timing correctly, you can't start the engine till it is all back together and if your timing is out it won't run right or might not even start. I would not recommend taking on this job if you don't have the slightest clue of what you are doing as there is a lot to go wrong (timing is set correctly can screw up your engine), and do attempt it if you don't intend spending alot (like 10hrs) of time on it to do it right.

My belt keep coming off the idler polley

Check the alignment of the pulleys. Most common problems are: 1) Belt tensioner. 2) Idler Pulley. 3) Crank Pulley (Vibration Dampner)

How do I access oil filter on 2007 HyundaI Accent?

well i hate to tell you that your going to have to get dirty on this one.. might want to put on some old overhauls.. jack up the car on the drivers side. then make sure it is secure with some jack stands properly in place.crawl under the car and you should see it some where on the motor. it will be a can looking thing. they make a special wrech to take it off with and put a new one on. you wil need an oil catcher to catch the oil also.
