Broken Harmonic Balancer - Questions
Well, the Bonne must have been jealous that I had my pickup in the shop getting some new parts yesterday, because on the way home from lunch, it started making a gawd-awful racket! Made the car sound like an old VW Beetle at idle, it was embarrasing.
Was diagnosed as a broken harmonic balancer. In a brief search, I've seen this mentioned in a few different posts. Just curious if this was a common problem for these cars, and curious if once replaced, I should worry about it happening again.
My car has around 108,000 miles on it right now. Did the balancer have a life-span? It'* not a part I would have expected to wear out, but obviously something went wrong there. Thanks!!
