Question about Ford Taurus

1 Answer

1999 Ford Taurus. Can see crankshaft spinning fine coming out of block. Nut on end holding harmonic balanced spinning fine too. Harmonic balancer doesn't spin. How to fix? Do I need to pull the engine to fix or can it be done easier? Can I just pull off the water and power steering pumps? Do I need to replace the harmonic balancer or could it be a "breakaway" or replaceable component? Engine runs fine. Any help or suggestions. Thank you.

There is a key way in the crankshaft and the balancer with a woodruff key that keeps it locked in place. The woodruff key resembles a half moon shape. You will have to remove the balancer to see what kind of damage there is and go from there.

How do I take off the harmonic balancer on a 4.0 liter engine


You will have to take the belt off and then take the bolt out of the center that holds it onto the crankshaft. then You need a "harmonic balancer" puller, It has slots that bolt to the inner part of the balancer and you screw in the big center bolt. As you tighten the bolt it "pulls" the balancer. Here is a picture;

Where is the crank sensor located on a 1999 oldsmobile intrigue 3.5 engine???? easy to replace or not...


usually all crankshaft sensors are located right next to the main drive pulley (Harmonic balancer). As far as being easy is concerned some are not so easy as some require the removal of the harmonic balancer to get to it.. but you might be lucky Gm is pretty good at making the Crankshaft sensor accessible without removing the harmonic balancer.

What is the procedure on removing an alternator from a 2001 Taurus with a duratec engine?


Okay, on your engine, the alternator is mounted below the rear cylinder bank of the engine, at the rear of the engine compartment. It'll be easier to access it from the driver's side front fenderwell (take off the right front tire then the plastic lining) or under the car. You might want to go ahead and remove both the liner and work from underneath as you'll need to remove your crankshaft pulley.

1: Disconnect the negative batery cable.

2: Disconnect the electrical connections from the alternator. The output wire is secured by a nut on the output terminal.

3: Revove the serpentine/drive belt.

4: Remove two bolts and one stud bolt that secure the alternator to it's bracket. Remove the crankshaft pulley.

Installation is reverse of removal.

After installing the alternator, reinstall the drivebelt and reconnect the negative battery cable.

To remove the crank-shaft pulley

1: As you'll aready have the wheel, liner, negative battery cable, and serpentine/drivebelt removed, as well as the car on jackstands, I'll omit those steps.

2: Remove the driveplate access cover and hold the ring gear teeth with a large scredriver or pry bar to prevent the crankshaft from turning.

3: Remove the nuts that secure the pullley bracket to the engine front cover. Remove the pulley and bracket.

4: The crankshaft pulley screws into the harmonic balancer with a left hand thread (reverse threaded so rightly loosey lefty tighty). Trun the crankshaft pulley clockwise to loosen and remove it.

5: Hopefully this is where you'll end with the pulley. The harmonic balancer is no fun to remove, but let me know if you need to know this too. After you have your alternator installed, put the pulley back onto the harmonic balancer before installing the serpentine/ drive belt.

Hope this info helps.

2001 Ford Taurus, Harmonic balancer removal


I had this problem and had to block the teeth of the harmonic balancer with a 2-ton hydraulic jack handle (use an assistant to hold) while I torqued on the bolt with a 4-way lug wrench and a length of pipe. Took a minute, but finally we heard the "ping" of the seal breaking and were able to remove that BAB.
