Noises problem
1993 Ford Tempo 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

how do I tell if my crankshaft is going out?
there is a loud rattleing noise coming from one of the pullys in the blet drive. Its not the alternator. And the noise gets louder when I shift into gear

I'm gonna guess it's the main crank pully which is also your harmonic balancer? It's partly made of rubber and delaminates with time and then becomes noisy? While i've seen the problem on other cars, I have no such experience with tempos although I have red about them here. Do a tempo forum seach for 'harmonic balancer' and see what you find. Replacing it should be the cure.
