Get someone to support the bonnet/hood and at the top and bottom of strut is a circlip that pops off(keep it to put back on).Lubricate the inner ball top and bottom to free it up and gently pry the ball free one at a time with a wiggle but they can break if you use too much force.

The vents won't switch to floor in my VW Cabrio


First make sure the switch is actually working then check vacume hoses and actuators under the hood. If they are leaking air the hoses will need to be replaced with like hoses also follow the lines as the manufacture often put connectors for easier replacement. Also chevk in your vehicle or behind dashboard. This can be very time consuming.

I have a 2000 nissan sentra my harmonic balance is bad according to a autozone person it moves when the car is on and he told me it needs to be replaced because it has play i need to replace and find out...


The harmonic balancer is integrated with the crankshaft pulley, and if replaced requires taking the bolt out from the side of the 4 cyl. engine.

I would recommend that an experience engine rebuilder perform the service.

Inspect the Harmonic Balancer:

The harmonic balancer (vibration damper) is inspected for signs of wear in its center bore.
  • Also inspect the rubber mounting for indications of twisting and deterioration.
  • The outer ring can slip, causing an out of balance condition. Replace any harmonic balancer that has slipped.
  • With the cylinder head removed and the piston at top dead center (TDC), make a visual comparison. Do the timing marks for TDC on the timing cover and damper appear to be accurate.
  • Be sure the damper is the correct one for the vehicle. The wrong one can be worse than none at all.
  • Sometimes a damper can become loose on the crank. Check the keyway for wear that can result from improper damper installation, the wrong size key, or a loose damper hub to crank fit.
  • Be sure all pulleys are straight. A damaged pulley can force a crankshaft to bend during engine operation.
This is a general guide on replacing the harmonic balancer, but there are other instructions that the rebuilder would follow to actually do the service for you:

To remove the harmonic balancer, the cylinder head and timing cover must be removed and the piston should be at top dead center (TDC).
  • Install the vibration damper by pounding it on, or use a special installation tool.
  • Generally, the damper is installed unit it bottoms out against the oil slinger and the timing sprocket.
  • If in doubt, install the water pump and pulley, and then pound the damper into place until its pulley aligns with the water pump pulley.
  • It is advisable to use the installation tool, because pounding on the damper can cause stress on the crank thrust bearing surface.
  • It is best to stand the engine block on end and support the crankshaft if the damper must be pounded on.
  • Some vibration dampers are not pressed-fit on the crankshaft.
  • Be sure to install a large washer behind the damper retaining bolt on these engines; otherwise, the damper might fly off, causing damage and a safety hazard.

Bolt on crankshaft to remove clockwise or counterclockwise?


prev.gif next.gif Crankshaft Damper/Pulley counterclockwise to remove pulley:
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Remove the drive belts from the crankshaft damper.
  2. Remove the crankshaft damper-to-crankshaft bolt. Hold the crankshaft stationary by placing a suitable tool in the ring gear teeth on the flywheel. Fig. 1: Use a breaker bar to remove the crankshaft damper bolt 89613g41.gif
    Fig. 2: The crankshaft can be held stationary by using a suitable tool to place between the flywheel teeth 89613g42.gif
    Fig. 3: Be sure to lubricate the threads of the crankshaft damper bolt to obtain a proper torque reading 89613pi9.jpg

  3. Remove the crankshaft damper from the crankshaft by pulling it straight off the shaft. A puller may be required to remove the damper from the shaft. Be careful not to lose the woodruff key when removing the crankshaft damper. Fig. 4: The crankshaft damper can sometimes be pulled from the shaft by hand 89613pj1.jpg
    Fig. 5: A puller may be required to remove the crankshaft damper 89613g40.gif
    NOTE: If working on a VE30DE or VQ30DE engine, it would be a good idea to replace the crankshaft oil seal when the crankshaft damper is removed. Fig. 6: The timing chain cover oil seal should be replaced whenever the crankshaft damper is removed; this seal is leaking severely 89613pj2.jpg
    Fig. 7: This crankshaft damper may have a problem sealing properly due to the groove that was worn into it from the seal 89613pj4.jpg
    To install:
  4. Install the crankshaft damper onto the shaft, making sure the woodruff key is in place. Dip the damper bolt in fresh oil and torque the crankshaft damper-to-crankshaft bolt to the following specifications:
    • VG30E engine — 90–98 ft.lbs. (123–132 Nm.)
    • VE30DE engine — 123–130 ft.lbs. (167–177 Nm.)
    • VQ30DE engine — 29–36 ft.lbs. (39–49 Nm.) followed by 60–66°clockwise angle torque
  5. Install the drive belts to the crankshaft damper; be sure to properly set belt tension.

Need a diagram to replace the crank pulley on a 1990 Oldsmobile regency 98 3.8 liter


This is what I found on the 98 Regency instructions: Crankshaft Damper REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the belts from the crankshaft pulley.
  3. Remove the crankshaft damper attaching bolt.
  4. Attach a suitable puller to the damper and remove the damper from the crankshaft. NOTE: On certain models, removal of the cooling fan, fan shroud or radiator may be necessary for clearance. WARNING
    DO NOT pry on the damper assembly to remove it from the vehicle or component damage will result. Remove the damper using a puller only.
  5. Installation is the reverse of removal. Torque the damper bolt to specification. Fig. 1: One example of a crankshaft damper puller tool 85843074.gif
    Fig. 2: Removing the crankshaft damper bolt 85843193.jpg Fig. 3: Do not attempt to pry on the damper to remove it from the crankshaft, use a puller only 85843194.jpg Fig. 4: Removing the damper from the crankshaft 85843195.jpg Fig. 5: When installing the damper, thread the bolt by hand first to prevent cross-threading 85843196.jpg prev.gif next.gif

Ac f 150 ford truck


Hello santillani...the a/c duct routeing is controlled by a vaccum operated damper... the defrost, is the systems default mode. Sounds like you could have a vaccum line leaking or broken, or the linkage on the damper itself is not properly working. Also...on the later 90 model fords pickups, there is a 3-way vacuum valve behind the battery next to the firewall that i've found faulty, i would check that first, bout 8 buxs to replace it.
TIP: While you are under the hood, do a general inspection of all the rubber lines, hoses and belts, pcv valve and connector line. Your truck is 12 years old so a lot of rubber products may start to show deterioration.
Good luck...i hope this helps and will fixya up.

1990 cherokee shakes badly only at 50-55mph


Check the front steering damper. The steering damper is a shock that is mounted horizontaly in the front. The damper is bad if you see oil leaking from it or if the car has high mileage and never been replaced.
