What's a balancer?
In this case, the crankshaft pulley. Also known as a harmonic balancer, it cancels out torsional vibrations from the crankshaft. For some reason, they like to come loose on these engines.
Check all parts for wear. I'd replace the bolt, use red loctite (or 671? Dark Green, sleeve retaining) and torque to 100ft/lbs. The spec is something like 90ft/lbs. Some of us have been creeping that torque spec up because of this problem.

Then get rid of the thing. I just did the oil pan, and paid $15 for a little rubber grommet, and the mechanics want almost $200 to tune the thing, and it has no cap and rotor!! (STILL haven't found the leak!) Then there are all the faulty codes...So I work on it. And work on it. And work on it. I can't wait for it to die. The wife loves it, (she dosn't have to work on it) but she's on her own if she want's another one. Knowing what it costs to have a garage work on it has conviced her not to get another one of those things. I own a Ford truck, and thought it was a piece of junk until I started dealing with Subarus. Don't know what y'all see in them. Might as well have an american car with all the problems Subaru has.
