Why did my harmonic balance melt and fall off

The same thing happened to me. The rubber separating the metal parts dries out and breaks. When this happens the balancer spins causing friction. A new balancer will probably last for the rest of the vehicle life.

The balancer is bad, or it has come loose. There is a little metal wedge piece called a woodruff key that holds the balancer in place, and then the crankshaft center bolt keeps the balancer on tight.
There should be no wobble or movement at all of the harmonic balancer. Take it off, it may still be alright, but find out why the pulley moves on the crankshaft. Maybe the key is missing. This should not be an expensive repair-it's not a problem with the motor, just that balancer pulley.

How do you change the Harmonic balancer on 1994 Toyota tercel

just the harmonic balancer the bolt is tensioned to 112 ft/lb so get a1/2 " impact wrench as that will undo the bolt without the need to hold the crankshaft
may need a harmonic balancer puller but with that tension
the pulley should slip of the shaft with a bit of effort
to get space to run the impact gun , you may have to remove the radiator

Harmonic balancer bad car runs real bad

The harmonic balancer controls the triggering of the combined crankshaft/camshaft sensor. This controls ignition plus fuel injection. Replace the balancer and adjust the sensor or replace it if damaged.
