hello jimmy, i've been reading a few posts on the crank pulley, and it sounds quite scary, as i said i,m new to all this and certainly no mechanic, when i got my van the first thing i done was have a full service including a cambelt change, i have no strange noises knocks or bangs when ticking over or when driving,infact it sounds great, if this problem was to arise what would i notice, i really am a worrier and after reading this its now on my mind, for what it costs is it worth having the crank pulley and bolt changed anyway, or is this being over the top, as if theres no problems is it pointless doing, are there owners out there who have racked up the miles without this problem, i have a 2000 1.9 td with 59k on the clock, sorry if i sound daft , gaz

Makes perfect sense to do what you have done already and the likelyhood is that the garage who did your cambelt (if they are any good) would have checked it anyway. You will know its happening when you get inconsistency in how the engine runs and starts at all temperatures. Its difficult to see the wobble on the crank sprocket but if there is a problem you will see a ghost image which is the vibration as you look at the edge. Hope this helps

cheers jimmy, so if theres no strange noises and everythings running fine then i'll take it as ok, i suppoise it would seem a little daft to do unessacary work, the only thing we have noticed is a strange creak from the front when pulling away, it only happens about twice a month im thinking it could be the clutch as its the original and its on 59k, i think the crank and bolt may have worried me for nothing, sometimes you seem to look for faults when you should just enjoy your van, cheers ,gary
