How do i remove the crank shaft pulley on a 2005 Hyundia Sonata LX


Undo the nut and put a pulley extractor on the end of it and tighten the bolt on the extractor. The pulley will come off the shaft. Don't loose the keyway.

What could cause my crankshaft pulley to wobble if it just has the 1 bolt in the center of it holding it in


Year/make/model?? Check to see if bolt is loose. Some crank pulleys have a rubber insert that can seperate causing a wobble.

Pulley wobble on front of 1991 Mazda MX5 Miata engine with short nose crank


Hello, Unless Mazda forges the pulley onto the crankshaft, the pulley is usually a separate piece. You do not know which piece is bent and there may be a possibility that the pulley is coming loose attributing to the wobble.

Clearance is a big issue in working on these transverse mounted motors. You may possibly be able to get a socket on the crankshaft bolt to tighten it. Its a guess on whether there is enough room to switch the crankshaft pulley without dropping the engine cradle out of the body.

I can not say whether the crank bolt is a left or right handed thread. But with a little more research you may be able to find out. Use the Web Browser for a specific part search.

A site called Car-parts.com is a Salvage network which links Salvage yards across the U.S. They have good contact info, price comparisions, and sometimes photos.

My mother had the oil changed in her 1992 Mercury Marquis, only 62,000 miles and the mechanic says we need to fix the crank pulley wobble? I have never heard of this, can you tell me what he is talking...


HI. This can be a potentially damaging find. The actual pulley may be separating from the crank shaft, itself.

Your crank pulley is bolted directly onto the harmonic balancer. The bolt that holds the balancer to the engine block may be loose, or the balancer, itself, may be separating. This condition could also destroy your crankshaft, if not repaired, asap. Hopefully your crank shaft is in good condition, and the culprit will turn out to be just a simple loose pulley bolt. The repair cost could catapult to a higher rate if it turns out to be a crank shaft fault.

Have this potentially damaging condition inspected, asap.

Check all of the accessories that run off the belt. some may have loose or bent pulleys or the acessory itself may have come loose. Be careful to route the belt exactly as shown too. Tighten up or replace your wobbly pulleys.

the crank pulleys (also called a harmonic dampener) on these vehicle are a fairly common failure. as they begin to break apart, the pulley will begin to have a wobble as the engine runs, causing the drive belts that power your alternator, power steering, etc to loosen off. when the belts then get wet, combined with being loose, they will slip, causing your accessories not to work. hope this was helpful!

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.
