i'm a mechanic never seen this problem before looks like a misfire but engine don't change runs smooth -
Answer 2
There is a bolt that holds the lower timing cover on that has backed out and is touching the crank balancer!! No problem at all to remove it and repair the problem. That's my guess. In any event the pulley comes off easy after removing the bolt! Pull it and see what up. -

Answer 3
Verify your Belts, some belts make static and you see under car or with a test light put close to damper then you can see the spark. -
