Harmonic Balancer? 1993 Buick Park Ave Ultra - 3.8L V6 engine

Showing 4 out of 4 Posts
Question From mmcginley497 on Harmonic Balancer? 1993 Buick Park Ave Ultra - 3.8L V6 engine

1993 Buick Park Ave Ultra - 3.8L V6 engine

Loud, off rhythm banging coming from engine. Appears to come from belts. My research suggested a faulty Harmonic Balancer?

Here is the video of it:



Would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks all.

Response From mmcginley497

It has been confirmed. It is a bad Balancer. I hope the video resource attached to the post provides someone else a service. Appreciate the feedback!

Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

Yep, bad balancer. Rubber coming apart. Take the belt off and grab the outer ring of the balancer and turn it. You'll understand.

Response From mmcginley497

Thanks Discrete! A friend has the tool to yank that puppy off, thank goodness. Appreciate your feedback.

Have a great day!

Question From mrtnbill on harmonic balancer bolt removal

hi everyone i have a 1991 buick park ave. with a 3.8 and i cant get the bolt for the harmonic balance off " crankshaft pulley" i tried with air and no air. is there anyone who can help/

Response From Loren Champlain Sr Top Rated Answer

mrtnbill; The safest way is with a pneumatic impact gun. Most times, it requires a high quality gun with sufficient air pressure. But....This can be a dangerous operation, but usually will work. Using a breaker bar and an impact socket, place the breaker bar so it is wedged against something solid, preferably the frame. Very quickly, hit the starter. The danger being, that if the breaker bar comes off of the nut, it can damage things. Or you. This is not recommended for the novice. In fact, I don't recommend doing this, at all. Just a thought.

1995 Buick Riviera loss of power/acceleration

Showing 3 out of 4 Posts | Show 1 Hidden Posts
Question From bpyazel on 1995 Buick Riviera loss of power/acceleration

I have a 1995 Buick Riviera, 3.8L supercharged - 65,000 miles, that has suddenly lost power and won't accelerate past about 35 mph. It will only do about 5 mph up hills and frequently stalls. Starts fine though. No engine light has come on, though I did check it and it does work.

I just replaced the fuel filter and the fuel pump. Had the fuel line pressure checked and it is within normal levels. Next, I had the catalytic converter removed from the vehicle, suspecting it was clogged. The car still will not accelerate.

Btw, the following parts were replaced and are new because of problems within the last year, so hopefully it won't be any of them: air temp sensor, coolant temp sensor, alternator, battery, and harmonic balancer.

I'm not a mechanic, but a friend of mine is and is trying to help me, but I think we might have run into a brick wall here.

Anyone have any ideas?

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

The fuel pressure should be 41-47psi. Does the engine run smooth? Just severe loss of power? If okay, take a manifold vacuum reading at idle and then again at 2500 rpm, and post the results. The fuel pressure/volume and exhaust backpressure would have been my first guess. I'm leaning towards thinking it may have jumped a tooth on the timing chain. Hope not. With the ignition off, put a wrench or ratchet w/socket on the large bolt in the center of the harmonic balancer and turn the engine clockwise, just a bit. Then, slowly turn it the opposite way, noticing how much 'slop' before it becomes hard to turn again.
Anything over 6 degrees (1/4") on the outside of the balancer is excessive. If this has actual timing marks, you can start at zero and take an accurate measurement of the degrees. Gosh, I hope I explained that correctly.

Response From bpyazel

Well, found the problem. The damn harmonic balancer cracked at the key line again and ended up sliding and throwing the timing off. Someone warned me about buying a Dorman harmonic balancer for this car. Guess I'll listen to them next time. 6 months is how long it lasted. The key is damaged again, so now I have to tear down half the engine to get the key replaced again. What a job this is going to be....

Response From Loren Champlain Sr Top Rated Answer

bpyazel; Well, I'm glad that you found the problem, but sorry to hear the cause. I've used many Dorman harmonic balancers in the past and never had a problem. For what it's worth. But, you won't go wrong using an OE one.

Question From emmitt on 1994 buick century knock engine/transmission

1994 buick century knocks when idling but stops when in gear?

Response From Hammer Time

Determine where the knock is originating from. There are lots of possibilities.

Response From emmitt

i can not locate source but only knocks at times and stops when you put it in gaar. car run's good no power loss no other issues.

Response From Discretesignals

Which engine?

Can you record the noise and upload it to a video hosting site and then paste the link in here?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

May just be belt noise. Just spray it with some water and see if noise goes away for just a short while - costs nothing to try. If that works replace the belt with high quality only - some are noisy right away and can sound like a real mechanical problem?

If no change at all move on to other possible things,

Response From emmitt

may have used wrong word.mabe hammer is better. engine runs fine then loud banging or hammer. once or twice then smoothes out runs fine. if car is in gear or being driven no issue.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

That doesn't sound so great now. Another thing is just look at harmonic balancer to see if it's in perfect plane with other pulleys. Rare side to me but reported a lot at this site of balancer coming apart or no longer in line where it should be. If so and it fell off no telling the damage it might be able to make,

Then I suggest you find a competent repair shop.

Buick Skylark Crankshaft Position Sensor

Question From Guest on Buick Skylark Crankshaft Position Sensor

So i have a 1993 Buick Skylark v6 3.3l and i am not getting any spark. so i changed out the ignition control module and the coil packs and am still getting no spark. Which leads me to believe its the CPS so how do i go about replacing the sensor. thanks

Response From Hammer Time

That Crank Sensor requires a $600 tool to install so instead of throwing parts at it why don't you spend $5 for a noid light and check for injector pulse. If you have injector pulse, you can eliminate the crank sensor.

Response From Guest

sorry buddy but i already did check for fuel injector pulse and i am not getting ANY so calm down.

Response From Guest

oh and what is this $600 tool your talking about because i didnt need it when i changed the sensor

Response From Sidom

You should take his posts for what they are..... The guy is trying to help you & save you some $$$$$$.

The tool you are inquiring about was/is made by Kent Moore I believe & it's sole purpose in life was to set the air gap on the crank sensor because it's a blind fit & it's around $600. Recently some companys started making sensors with no setting that bolt on. Sounds like you got lucky & got one of those because there are still some adjustable ones out there.

The man has a lot of knowledge, if ya work with him, he'll help ya get your ride going.... If you want to argue with him......well...........

Response From Hammer Time

Thanks Sidom

I just hope he has solved his problem before getting so rude with the people trying to help him. I doubt he will see much help from here on. .

Response From Guest

sorry if i came off rude but i was just wandering what tool was needed because the sensor just bolted on. and yes it did fix the problem thank you. and again sorry

Response From Tom Greenleaf

rellsun ;

Glad you are all fixed up. The apology worked wonders as I was about to go postal on YOU. Hammer and Loren probably forgot yesterday more than I ever knew so you had the best of the web for free at your beck and call.

All be calm - this site is free and not begging which speaks loudly for integrity IMO!

Response From Loren Champlain Sr Top Rated Answer

The crank sensor is mounted just above and a little to the side of the harmonic balancer. Sounds like you are on the right track.
