QUESTION
Why do I need to inspect and replace a Torsional Vibration Damper (TVD)?  
ANSWER
The TVD is designed to absorb crankshaft rotation speed fluctuations. It is a wear part. When to replace it depends on the application, the nature of the drive system and vehicle usage. Excessive idling or starting can adversely affect operational lifetime. As TVD wear increases, so do belt vibrations, belt noise and the potential for premature failure (which can contribute to SBDS failure). Be aware that a worn TVD can compromise the performance of other components in the drive system.
