Symptoms of a Bad Harmonic Balancer?

Answer

Some of the symptoms of a bad harmonic balancer include loud vibration that comes from the engine compartment, damage to belts or very noise belt operation, and a lack of start or bad ignition timing. The harmonic balancer is the portion of the vehicle that is supposed to maintain vibration levels that are low through the crankshaft and throughout the entire engine. In most cases the first sign of a bad harmonic balancer is an abrupt change in the noises of the engine.
