How to replace a Dorman Harmonic Balancer on a 2001 Chevy venture van


What is a Harmonic Balancer?
The Harmonic Balancer, or vibration damper, is a component connected directly to the front of the engine on the crankshaft. Its sole purpose is to reduce torsional vibrations created by the engine as the cylinders fire.

What causes Harmonic Balancer failure?
There are a variety of possible causes for balancer failure. Most common among these are heat stress, wear from road salt, oil leak, or ozone attacking the rubber components, damage inflicted by road debris, crankshaft failure, stress from integrated drive pulleys, and stress caused by loads from other devices such as power steering pump, AC compressor, alternator, air pump, and water pump.

My 1992 Ford Tempo won't start. It acts like it wants to start by turning over but there is no catch to fire it up. So far the alternator, harmonic balancer, fuel pump, plugs,distributor and filters...


...the harmonic balancer was replaced? I hope that was not in relation to your vehicle not starting - if it was, that was a waste of money. The first three things to check for are fuel, air, and spark.
You need to test if the spark is making it to the end of the spark plug - can be done by removing a plug and placing it in the wire - and setting it near something that it can arc to. Just don't zap yourself.
Next, check for fuel pressure.
Check for a clogged air intake system or dirty air filter.

After than you'd check for compression - by putting a compression gauge in to a spark plug port. If the compression is low or off by 25% in one cyl from the different ones, this is an issue.

The suv died while I was driving. Had it towed to a shop. They replaced the alternator as well as the harmonic balancer. Harmonic Balancer was replaced with an aftermarket part due to the fact Japan is not...


Assuming that the alternator was bad, preventing the battery from fully charging and the mechanic got it right. However the replacing the "Harmonic Balancer" makes no sense as the "Balancer" only smooths out the tendency of the engine to vibrate. See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ex_yJ_V5UH8
As to it running rough check the spark plug wires as these on older cars tend to break the carbon path in the center of the plug wires thus loosing spark to a plug from time to time. Start the engine at night when it is dark and look under the hood at the plug wires to see if you have any arcing. Replacing the plug wires cost a little less than 20 bucks.

If it ran prior to removing the distributor, it maybe 180 degrees out. Remove the cap, leave the rotor in place, loosen the bolt and lift it up,turn rotor until it is on the opposite side and place it back in.
