My car has been having a bit of trouble starting. I have noticed that I am able to move by hand the belt, everything spins very smoothly, but if I recall correctly the harmonic balancer/cranckshaft shouldn't do that. Is this correct? I also have noticed that there is a lot of oil around it, looks like its leaking oil from the engine. The other day I tried to start the car and noticed that the alternator was spinning but not everything else, so I quickly turned of the engine and have left it alone for the time being. Any suggestions or ideas of what the problem can be will help. I tested the alternator at an auto parts store and its still good, also it has a new water pump, about 11 months old.
have the same problem?
