Hi, is the balancer wobblin?
no not at all.
The mount on the car are new and were replaced before i did the timing belt and the shaking was never there until i changed the timing belt.
There's 3 mounts on the front of that engine. You have the upper short "dog bone and longer lower dog bone then the center one with the big torx bolt. I'd check the center one. It might be bad or not in place correctly. If either, it will transfer the vibration from the engine to the body especially since its bolted to the frame rail and wasn't there before the timing belt job.
jon are you still here with me?
all the engine mounts are good. All three of them and the trans mount as well. its not that.
This thing shakes really bad man like a washing machine out of balance. Maybe the balancer is clocked wrong. can you see if they go one in a certain way please.
The balancer definitely just presses onto the crank. There's no keyway like you said. Some PT's had a balance shaft in the oil pan. I'm not in front of a computer .I'll get back to you shortly.
yeah can you send me the procedure of the timing belt replacement please. I want to see if i missed something on my install. I'm wondering if i have the timing belt to lose or to tight.
Turbo or non turbo?
CAUTION: Ensure that the arrows on both camshaft sprockets are facing up.
NOTE: Repositioning the crankshaft to the TDC position must be done only during the CLOCKWISE rotation movement. If TDC is missed, rotate a further two revolutions until TDC is achieved. DO NOT rotate crankshaft counterclockwise as this will make verification of proper tensioner setting impossible.
did you notice if it has the balance shaft assembly in the oil pan and did you have the chain off of it if so?
Here is how that gets timed:
no chain just belt.
the chain would be behind the crank sprocket and go down to the balance shaft assembly if it has it. Can you send me a picture of the oil pan viewed from the front of the engine (right side of car)?
I'm trying to determine if your vehicle has the balance shaft assembly or not in case you're wondering why I'm asking for a picture of the oil pan. I'll be able to tell by looking at the oil pan.
