Hard to say. However, if the "rubber gasket" you're talking about is the center bushing on your harmonic balancer, that could throw your Harmonic balancer out of balance. This could easily make it shake to beat the band which in turn could be the knocking noise you're hearing. I suggest you get it looked at immediatly. If that is what happened, your engine won't survive long.

Oil leak from harmonic balancer Chevrolet 350?

The oil leak is probably comming from the top of the oil pan there is a rubber gasket that goes between the oil pan and the water pumb which would make it look like its comming from the harmonic balancer, try replacing the oil pan gasket this should fix the problem. New answer: There is a small round oil seal / Harmonic balancer seal that fits in the timing cover and the balancer slides through the center of it. That is probley were your oil leak is. Most of the time the balancer itself gets a groove wore in it over time from that rubber seal running on it. You can repair the balancer by buying a Harmonic balancer repair sleeve/ speedy seal. Also replace the front timing cover seal.


How do you replace gasket seals at the timing chain area oil is leaking out in that area of my 1998 Nissan 200sx-se 16l?

If the oil is leaking from the timing chain cover behind the Harmonic Balancer (main large double pulley the belts run on). After removing the belts you need to remove the Harmonic Balancer using a puller, not to damage it, and then replace the seal in the cover. Inspect the back side of the Harmonic Balancer. The seal only seals to the shoulder of the Harmonic Balancer not the back face. If the shoulder's surface is not smooth replace it or it will leak again. Apply some light grease on the seal and mating surface of the Harmonic Balancer and reinstall. Re-install the belts. If it is leaking around the edges of the cover the sealant may need replacing. Also check the condition of the sealant around the oil pan. Both would require removal/cleaning and re-sealing.
