What is the Crankshaft Harmonic Balancer all about?

The harmonic balancer (also called “crank pulley damper”), connected to the crankshaft of an engine, reduces engine vibration and serves as a pulley for the drive belts. The balancer or “damper” is composed of two elements: a mass and an energy-dissipating element. The mass resists the acceleration of the vibration and the energy dissipating (rubber) element absorbs the vibrations. When the balancer fails, it is usually due to heat, salt, and or ozone deterioration of the rubber. General wear, tear, and stress on the rubber is also a factor.

Keep in mind:

Usually a problem with the harmonic balancer means that it needs to be replaced. However, sometimes the rubber insert that sits between the center and the outside of the pulley is all that is damaged. It is also possible for the bolt that holds the balancer in place to become loose, which can cause problems even if the pulley isn’t damaged.

How it's done:

  • Inspect the harmonic balancer.
  • Remove drive belts and balancer.
  • Inspect condition of crankshaft front seal.
  • Replace the harmonic balancer.
  • Reinstall drive belts.
  • Start car and check for proper operation.

Our recommendation:

Harmonic balancers aren’t a part of most standard inspections, so keep your eye out for warning signs. If you notice excess vibration or noise from the engine, then your balancer may be damaged, and you need to schedule an inspection.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Crankshaft Harmonic Balancer?

  • Vibration from engine.
  • Loud, abnormal engine noise, which increases with acceleration.

How important is this service?

The crankshaft harmonic balancer is connected to the crankshaft, and absorbs many of the vibrations that the engine creates. The engine creates a large amount of force that is delivered to the crankshaft, which transfers the power to the transmission. The harmonic balancer is responsible for absorbing some of the engine-created force so that the crankshaft doesn’t receive it all. When the harmonic balancer fails, the crankshaft receives all of the engine’s vibrations, and is susceptible to serious damage.

Ford E-350 Econoline V8-7.5L - Alternator - Pinole, California
Joseph was friendly and personable. He worked on my Ford E350 Econoline. He experienced some problems getting the right alternator from O'Reillys, O'Reilly's gave him 6 alternators, all of them the wrong one. He was late to the service appt , and when I called, he told me we would have to reschedule for next morning The following day he removed my alternator rapidly and then told me he would return with the right alternator, especially since he had the old one to make a comparison, this was about 8:00 a.m.. It was 3:00 when I decided to call him. I called the number and they told me Joseph left a message that he would be unable to finish the job do to unforseen circumstances. I became a little upset after this because he had my alternator and just stated he could not finish. The person on the phone told me she would find out what was going on and call me right back. She never did. I called again and got a very helpful woman, who gave me a $25.00 discount and told me she would find out what was going on, she didn't call me back,but Joseph did and said he was on his way and be right over. He showed up and put the new alternator,belt tensioner, and serpentine belt within minutes. I don't know why Joseph didn't call me himself and let me know what was going on, he is a really nice guy and I do not understand it. I would let him work on my vehicle again, but I would make sure to call him, every hour.
