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.

Volvo S70 - Car is not starting - San Francisco, California
Excellent and knowledgeable mechanic. Figured out why my 98 Volvo wouldn't start, and came back the next day and fixed it with the part needed. Got my car running. He even did a test drive to make sure everything was o.k. What great service!

Volvo S70 - Alternator Repair - San Antonio, Texas
I had a bad alternator and torn belt on my 98 volvo s70. Andy was on time, friendly, and worked hard to get the issue resolved. I showed him the car and he got to assessing the problem immediately. I left him to it and he fixed my car right in my apartment parking lot, he even worked to finish the repair in the dark. I was skeptical as first when signing up for yourmechanic.com but after dealing with Andy i would recommend his/their service to any of my friends or family. It was too easy and you save a lot of money. Just be careful not to schedule repairs in the pouring rain and you should be good. Fast, friendly, professional, & worth every penny. Thanks !
