These may be separate problems but when I start the car it immediately begins making a rattling noise like a nickel vibrating in a tin can. I tracked it down to the pulley in the serpentine belt for my AC compressor. The pulley seems to be spinning freely but the face of it rotates very slowly and there are metal shavings around the edges and under it. I honestly don't know if the face is supposed to be immobile or what but it spins. and it's grinding somewhere.
The other problem I have (related or not) is that the car has completely cut out on me twice. It suddenly feels like it's gotten knocked into neutral (power brakes out, steering suddenly heavy) but the engine won't rev and I have to let momentum get me off the road. Radio stays on the whole time though. Shutting the engine off and restarting has fixed the problem both times. Is this a belt problem or just a bad coincidence?

was told my spark plug inside my transmission needs replaced?! there isnt a spark plug in there, is there?
I have Buick Century 1999, (3.1 and 6 cylinders) which is leaking coolant from somewhere below the water pump and next to the timing cover (gasket).
The first occurence was three weeks ago, the second time was yesterday and this morning again.
The trace of coulant on the ground is about 3 inches in diameter.
I went to two different repair shops: the first told me that was a bad water pump that needs to be replaced, the second one, which had replaced the same water pump 9 months ago, told me that the coolant is leaking from the timing cover gasket.
Your experience and advice is greatly appriciated.
car was shifting hard, I checked trans fluid and was a little low, so I added some. Then the next day while driving the car just would not drive.. It starts up fine but won't go into gear. I'm guessing the transmission went out, but I'm hoping someone can tell me different..
