IS THIS A 3.8 BUICK ENGINE? I HOPE HE HAS THE TOOL FOR LINING THE SENSOR UP PROPERLY. IT IS EASY TO DAMAGE THE SENSOR DURING THE PULLEY REPLACEMENT.
THE SENSOR CAN BE REPLACED WITHOUT THE TOOL BUT IT TAKES ALOT OF FIGITING ARROUND AND DOUBLE CHECKING THE AIR GAP WITH A FEELER GUAGE WHEN DOING IT.

Changing harmonic balancer


Nope! Why don't you give the mechanic a tune to see if it's running rough because of lean mixture, fail ignition coils, worn spark plugs....could be one of those things. Because when yours is rough at idle, it means the mixture is not right, more likely be lean or one or more cylinders not igniting properly. Got nothing to do with harmonic balancer. But do check motor mount for cracks, but faulty mounts only give you excessive movement that you can really feel it KICKS when you change from P - R - D.

Usually the balancer is all by itself then you transfer the pulleys to the balancer

I have a 1995 mazda miata that needed a new harmonic balancer, new battery, and oil. It was working fine until I was coming home from work ( after putting 10W-40 and 10W-30 motor oil in it) and had noticed...


Any Noises and/or Stalling or Misfire(s) ?
Will Engine Crank ? If so does it Crank Fast or Slow and/or Really Slow like rrrruh....rru...rrru..rrururu ......click.click.click.click.click .
POSSIBILITY - ALTERNATOR BAD or going BAD it' not generating power to keep the battery charged therefore causing all Electronics to slowly fail as the battery loses all life ?
Need more Info and Why was a HARMONIC BALANCER needed? The obvious of course it was bad , But you are driving a MAZDA and a harmonic balancer isn't just a harmonic balancer it has to be the EXACT HARMONIC BALANCER , they can look identical and still be different . What was the REASONING for the replacement?NOT A COMMON PROBLEM.

We changed the starter in my 2004 honda civic and it still won't turn over it makes a squealing noise and eventually it will start but sometimes takes multiple hours


When the vehicle starts and makes a squeeling noise that is your belt being loose, you need to tension that up,before you do that look and feel the Harmonic balances is it loose, because there is the crank sensor with a toner wheel that is responsible for correct timing so you need to make sure that harmonic balancer is not damage and that can be why squeel noise, that it is making and giving you such a hard time to start it up.So inspect to see if the Harmonic balancer has shifted.

My 1992 chev lumina apv van stalls everytime i put on the brakes at every red light it restarts after no codes are coming up what could it be?:


check to make sure the power brake booster is not leaking, do this by starting the van and just let it idle in park and push the brake pedal if the engine stalls or surges or you hear a sucking noise under the dash then replace the power brake booster if there is none of these systems then replace the idle control motor. GOOD LUCK
