    New Car Crankshaft Harmonic Balancer in Hamilton

    What is the crankshaft harmonic balancer?

    Excessive vibrations can greatly affect the lifespan of your car engines crankshaft, resulting in expensive repairs becoming necessary. The crankshaft harmonic balancer (or harmonic damper) connects to the crankshaft and absorbs many of the vibrations produced by the engine, reducing the strain on the crankshaft. This allows for improved crankshaft health as well as a smoother driving experience with fewer bumps, noise and vibrations.
    How does the crankshaft work?

    The crankshaft harmonic balancer can become damaged over time. This is often due to high amounts of heat, loose bolts, or deterioration of the rubber that surrounds the crankshaft harmonic balancer.

    In many types of car, the crankshaft harmonic balancer will serve as a pulley for the drive belt, which powers the alternator, water pump and other crankshaft-controlled components. In the event that the crankshaft harmonic balancer becomes damaged, the functionality of these parts can be affected.

     

    Symptoms of a faulty crankshaft harmonic balancer:

    Vibration from the engine – Problems with the crankshaft harmonic balancer can cause an increase in engine vibration. These vibrations can damage the seals of the crankshaft over time, meaning it is best to get the harmonic balancer repaired as soon as possible.
    It is worth noting that there are many reasons your car can vibrate. For diagnostics, see Car Vibration Inspection & Repair in Hamilton

    Loud noises – You may notice that your engine is producing loud humming or shaking noises. These noises will increase in volume when you accelerate. This can be a sign that there is a problem with the crankshaft harmonic balancer.

    Oil leaks – Over time, the crankshaft seals can become damaged from absorbing all of your engine’s vibrations. This can lead to oil leaking from these seals. If you notice that your car’s oil warning light is on, or there are puddles of oil forming under your car, we recommend that you get the car checked sooner rather than later. Oil leaks can cause serious engine damage if left unfixed.
