    Oil Leak behind harmonic balancer

    Hi guys please see attached video of an oil leak after the front crank seal was replaced. Do you think the mechanic stuffed it up? It's pretty bad .There is always a puddle after a days driving. Is there anywhere else it can leak from?

    Bolt for remover snapped in harmonic banlancer

    Hi. My step dad tried to use a harmonic balancer remover in the process of replacing CAS but snapped one of the 3 bolts inside it. I don't suppose there is any way of removing it now without damaging the harmonic balancer? 96 VS Commodore.

    Ls3 Harmonic Balancer

    Any one any good with Ls Harmonic Balancers ? I am replacing my harmonic balancer on my ls3. I have pulled the old one off but I can’t press the new one on. It’s a Auto so I can’t lock up the engine and I also can’t get it on enough to put the bolt on and pull it in. Any suggestions ??

    V6 Crank Shaft Pulley - Death Rattle

    Hi all, For a while now, my V6 VR has been running rough and shaking the engine in low revs, sounding and running like the timing is off. Code 56 "Lean under Load" keeps on being logged too. Whilst driving, a loud noise came from the engine and chunks of rubber were coming off the crank...

    VR V6 engine vibe after harmonic change
