1992 Buick Park Avenue 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 113000 miles
About 3 months ago needed to have my harmonic balancer and serpentine belt replaced due to a loud clunking noise that was happening at idle or very slow speeds. I got the balancer used from a scrap yard to save a few bucks.
About one month later the noise started again. I don't want to buy a new part and have the repair done again just for it to fail again. Did I get a bad part or could something else be causing the balancer to fail? Also, what will eventually happen if I just don't replace it? The car runs great, but the noise is a nuisance and embarrassing.
