Hmm. When my balancer was dying, it would make clunking noises when I started or shut off the engine.

There is an inner hub bonded to a grooved outer ring with rubber. The rubber can degrade and crack. Then the outer ring is left to rattle around the outside of the hub. It is designed to continue to work if the rubber gives out, but it's loud.

Does the rubber looked cracked at all?

Take the plastic cover off the bottom driver side where the engine meets the transmission. Find a way to jam a screwdriver in the flywheel teeth. Or you can use an impact wrench to just zip it off.
