Crankshaft Harmonic Balancer Replacement Service

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.

Scion iQ - Serpentine/Drive Belt Replacement - Roselle, New Jersey
Absolutely phenomenal! Completely professional & friendly, great advice, arrived early, and worked really fast. Changed my serpentine belt in under an hour! I will 100% be using YourMechanic and Attilas from now on; I've never going to a dealer again.

Scion iQ - Loud squealing or rattling is coming from engine - Roselle, New Jersey
Quick and quality service! He arrived early, diagnosed my car issue, AND fixed it on the spot. Really appreciated going the extra step so I didn't need to make a follow up appointment; and taking the time to show me what was wrong and how he was going to fix it.

Scion iQ - Other Inspections - Portland, Oregon
First time user of YourMechanic, I'm shockingly pleased! Russ was super informative about everything, he even drew out diagrams so I could understand bigger issues happening in my car. There was a very minor issue where the website told him the wrong parts for my car and he had to go to the auto parts store mid-repair, but it was not a big deal for me and didn't seem like one to him. He even stayed longer than the appointment was supposed to last to explain everything going on, and gave me a bigger discount than what I was originally quoted. I'm very happy with the service and would book him again.
