harmonic pulley is wobbling
Kia Mechanic: Ricardo Hohl, Master Certified Tech replied 8 months ago

ok, the crankshaft reluctor is located behind the harmonic balancer if the balancer is wobbling then this means the crank sensors reluctors reluctor gear is broken this happens if the harmonic balancer was not properly torque upon installation

you will need to remove the timing belt and replace the lower crankshaft gear and reluctor.
