Question about 1988 Oldsmobile Toronado

1 Answer

Hi, I have a question is the harmonic balancer suppose to jiggle? When I am driving my Holden Commodore VS 96 model it sounds good until I put my foot down on the pedal and 1/4 way down it starts to make a whistle sound.. Is this in relation to the harmonic balancer or is it another problem? Also could you get back to me if the harmonic balancer is suppose to jiggle!! Thank you Regards Kelly

It sounds like your timing chain may be worn, A bit of a pain to change but do-able if you have the tools and some time. The harmonic balancer makes more of a knock than a rattle.

No fire to coil from coil on 96 model Jeep Grand Cherokee.

You need to put the harmonic balance for the 96 jeep on this motor,then put the crankshaft sensor on for the 96 jeep on the vehicle,this should fix you up.The crankshaft sensor and the harmonic balance have to go together.If I can be further help,let me know.>>
