The Harmonic Balancer is a pulley-like device located in front of the engine's crankshaft. It consists of two cast-iron components coupled by a rubber ring. Its purpose is to dampen the vibrations produced in the crankshaft due to the movement of the piston. When the cylinder is fired, a certain amount of torque is put on the crankshaft causing it to twist. This force can also cause vibrations that can damage your camshaft. The harmonic balancer prevents this from happening by absorbing vibrations.
The harmonic balancer helps maintain the speed of the moving parts accordingly. If you sense an irregular action, excessive noise or vibrations in your car's engine, you need to check for the proper functioning of the harmonic balancer. If your car's harmonic balancer is not functioning properly, you must replace it as soon as possible to avoid further issues.
