Father inlaw just bought geo for fuel milage crankshaft pulley has bad wobble, looks like someone may have cross threaded the bolt that holds timing sprocket and torque on the bolt until it broke off. The end of crankshaft where the keyway slot has been badly grooved from the amount of extra play and movement.

Do you
have the same problem?
