Will a bad harmonic balancer cause fluctuating oil pressure?
No. The harmonic balancer does exactly what it says. It is to keep the engine from viberating. You need to install a manual oil pressure gauge and run the engine cold and hot to determine if you really have a pressure problem. Most likely you have a bad oil pressure sending unit.
A bad harmonic balancer can cause a knocking noise. The harmonic balancer doesn't actually produce the noise, but it can cause the noise in the engine.
No, a rusted harmonic balancer will not prevent the engine from turning over.
What would cause an engine vibration when in drive at a stop light on a 1996 Ford Contour 2-liter Zetec with automatic transmission?
check harmonic balancer. check harmonic balancer.
I would contact the local parts store and replace the harmonic balancer if you think it is bad. a bad balancer can cause failure in the crankshaft bearings because of the shake.
It can cause a vibration at different RPMs. If it is wobbling around on the crankshaft it could cause damage to the crankshaft's snout. And a worst case scenario overtime a faulty balancer could break a crankshaft.
The balancer has a piece of rubber that holds it together, The balancer is made of two pieces with rubber in the middle, and the rubber is coming apart. REPLACE BALANCER. The Pulley that's bolted on the balancer may be bent or not on stright and flush on the balancer, That would make the balancer look like its wobbleing too.
If the rubber gasket on the harmonic balancer is ripped up will this cause a bad knocking noise How do you replace it if need be?
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.
What would cause a 1990 Bonneville to rattle near the belt when stopped in or out of gear but not when accelerating or having the RPM's reving at 1.5 or higher?
The balancer is made of two pieces of still that are pressed together with a solid piece of rubber between them. The most common problem is the rubber starts coming apart. and the outside of balancer spins on the end side part,and wobbles. Replace balancer
Your bronco is leaking oil from the front of the truck what could be the cause of this problem it lost oil pressure and when you got home oil was leaking from the front please help thanks?
you need a front oil seal and u need take the pulley off and the harmonic balancer off to change it
A bad balancer can cause failure for more than one reason. First, an unbalanced engine can have severe vibrations set up that will cause material failure in the engine, and it will break internal parts. Second, the balancer can come apart physically outside the engine. If this happens, the loose part can cause damage all over the engine room, and if caught in a belt or pully, jam the crankshaft. I've seen this happen!
What would cause an engine vibration on a 98 dodge neon the vibrating happens at all speeds at idler even if the engine is working in parking or neutral?
Not running on all cylinders? Bad harmonic balancer?
YES... The sound can be compared to a engine knock. If the problem is not fixed enventually you will be left stranded. The center of the balancer will break loose from the drive pulley section . This will cause you to lose CKP sensor operation as well as all your drive belt operations.
There are two places that a harmonic balancer can "come loose". # The center retaining bolt can come loose. That usually means someone didn't adequately tighten it. # The outer ring can come loose, which really means that the rubber between the center pulley and the outer ring has deteriorated. Find out which it is and if the balancer has separated, just replace it. If it's a loose bolt, put a drop or two locktite… Read More
Why would Harmonic Balancer pully be farther out away from engine than other pulleys belt goes on but when started moves in towards engine runs good but belt is not on crank pulley right 2001montana?
the balancer is coming apart.I had this happen to my 2000 montana. if you dont replace it, it will come off and who knows what damage it will cause.
Some people mistakenly change the harmonic balancer or the timing cover, without matching it up. Some had a timing mark located at the top center of the timing cover, and some were off to the side (between 1 and 2 o'clock) If you have a mismatched balancer & timing cover, you will not be able to line up the marks. Sometimes the rubber goes bad, and the outer ring of the balancer slips... which would… Read More
What would cause a 1993 Geo Storm that wants to die while running and is then hard to start up if it does at all you have replaced the fuel filter fuel pump plugs and wires all distributor parts?
check the harmonic balancer
Most common cause is a bad water pump, or harmonic balancer. Other possible causes are bad motor, bad supercharger, cracked flyweel, or in rare instances a bad torque converter.
What is the cause of engine vibration in park and upon starting to drive for 1997 buick park avenue?
My 92 PA had the same problem. It turned out to be the harmonic balancer. This pulley drives all the belts in the system. It can be quite easily checked to see if the rubber has deteriorated.
Fluctuating temperatures have diverse effects on rocks. This may cause freezing, thawing and break down of the rocks among other effects.
first check engine timing this is a major cause of vibration in a stationary vehicle, or non firing cylinder could be electrical or mechanical, then harmonic balancer, then look for broken engine mount.
Fluctuating hormones can cause sweating.
On 1990 through 1995 General Motors 3.8 L engines, the crankshaft positioning sensor was located under the harmonic balancer on the left side of the engine. The harmonic balancer is attached to the main crankshaft and must be removed through an access hole located in the right passenger wheel well. Remove the right front passenger tire after jacking up in stabilizing the vehicle. Inside the wheel well is a small plastic panel that can be… Read More
== == I do believe if you hear a knocking noise that your crank shaft could be failing. Which means you will need a new engine. Have it checked out. Replace the harmonic balancer they will make a bad knocking noise. When you start it and the oil light goes out and it knocks, this is what is wrong with it.
If your temperature is fluctuating between 98 and 103.5 there are several things that could be wrong with you. The most common cause is infection with germs known as viruses or bacteria.
Why does your Truck vibrate when at speed of 40-65 MPH but stops when you accelerate and de-accelarate?
There could be a lot of things that could cause that problem. Loose torque convertor or flywheel, bad harmonic balancer, broken motor mount. Check the u-joints and carrier bearing first.
What could cause a 2006 Honda Civic to shake and sometimes stall when starting after AC had been run during last drive?
I dont believe your AC has anything to do with your problem! The shaking may come from your harmonic balancer not being seated correctly and the stalling can be from many differnet things but i would start with the distributor.
What is the cause for your 97 Checy Tahoe LT oil pressure gauge fluctuating constantly and idle is not staying constant Idle revs when in Neutral?
probably a leak in the intake would cause the rev in neutral and as for the oil pressure gauge i still haven't got that figured out but its not just a problem on tahoes i have a 2500 pickup which also does that ANSWER When was the last time you changed the oil engine?. Replace and check.
Why does your 2001 Chevy Impala engine shut down on occasion just like it is out of gas even though it is almost full and then after you wait for a short time it starts right up and may be fine for an?
I had a similar problem, and it turned out to be the Crankshaft Position Sensor (located behind the harmonic balancer). It would short out and cause the engine to stall.
Having a short in the turn signal wiring can cause gauges to fluctuate. If the battery gauge is fluctuating corrosion on the cables can be a possible cause.
Can the timing chain on a 92 Olds Cutlass Ciera cause knocking noise at idle that disappears when rpm is increased as with serpentine belt off there is no knocking?
I am now able to answer my own question. Turns out that the timing chain was not the problem causing the loud knocking noise. I found a sharp mechanic and garage that I could trust. He was as puzzled as I was initially. But, it didn't take him long to diagnose the problem as a harmonic balancer. The rubber coupling in the harmonic balancer had deteriorated and created the knocking noise which was loudest when… Read More
Yes solids can cause pressure
What causes a 1990 Buick Century to shake and stall out when the car is slowed right down or stopped?
My 92 PA had a similar problem. At low engine speeds it would shake pretty bad. It turned out to be the harmonic balancer. You can easily check this by looking at the front end of the engine. It is the pulley that drives all the belts. If the rubber has deteriorated, it could be the cause of your problem.
Your 98 buick regal gs supercharged keeps cutting off and you have a new coil pack and fuel injectors are clean what could be wrong?
My 99 gs would stall on turning or just going down the road. Only happened a few times.Car would also not crank from time to time. Had a check engine code and was the crank shaft sensor. Replaced sensor and all is well. Harmonic balancer is a sob to remove so I had it done at a shop,labor was 100.00$. Part was 27.00$. Not Bad. However if your car has not cut off while running… Read More

Yes hyperthyroidism can cause high blood pressure.
does high blood pressure cause light deaded
A high blood pressure can cause a headache, but there are many other things that can cause headache.
Low oil pressure in itself will not cause the motor not start. Low oil pressure is a cause for concern as far as motor lubrication. Low oil pressure can cause lubrication failure and be harmful to all moving parts.
You can, fluctuating hormones and / or pain could be the cause. It could also be a coincidence and the vomiting could be caused by a stomach bug.
