yeah talking to a taxi driver a while back he mentioned that harmonic balancer needs to be changed and my baby has done 192k, so it's within the norm.
They gotta pull the radiator and fan assy of to get to it, so theres new coolant again :rolleyes:. Hopefully they can cure the pipe leaks that are around.
The car has been really good, very strong car and solid performance. Keeps up with Holden 5.0L so i'm happy. :D :D :D
I'm assuming it's the bearings of the balancer thats stuffed, i can't imagine the actual harmonic balancer goin. I'm not sure technically, anyone know further about this matter????
