Vista, CA Harmonic Balancer Replacement for all GM makes

Auto Repair Service

engineYou might expect to find something called a Harmonic Balancer in a sci-fi movie rather than a car, but it’s actually an important component to keeping your car running smoothly, and prevent your crankshaft from cracking or breaking. When a piston fires inside the engine, it transfers the force to the crankshaft, which then turns it in to rotational energy that can be used by your car or truck. All that force can take a toll, and the harmonic balancer helps the crankshaft compensate for it. If you think you need a replacement Harmonic Balancer in Vista, then come by GM Exclusive.

In most cars, the harmonic balancer can be found on the engine, at the end of the crankshaft. It’s made of metal and rubber, and absorbs some of the torque and vibration that that crankshaft exerts to prevent it from cracking or breaking under continued stress. It’s always a good thing when you can go longer without needing to replace a part like a crankshaft.

A harmonic balancer that’s going bad can be quite a noisy affair, so even if you’re not sure what’s wrong, you should at least be able to tell that there is something wrong. Loud rattling noises will key you off to a problem. In addition, it can cause your belts to slip or wear down, and of course, it adversely affects your crankshaft.
