2000 Chevrolet Metro Q&A

2000 Chevrolet Metro Question: Main pulley on my metro moved, how can I get it back into place?

The main pulley on my metro moved about a quarter inch out and now the belts wont stay on. I tried to move it back into position by loosening the bolt, but it wont budge. The car only had 120k on it and runs great besides now -

If you force it in or out with a prybar, will it move? If so, I'm afraid that the crankshaft thrust washers may have failed. 120k is a lot of miles for that motor so anything could happen. find a Geo, Suzuki or GM specialist to check it out.
