Also should it be too hard of a job for me to do myself?

Do you mean the crankshaft pulley to turn the serpentine belt? This crankshaft pulley is connected by the crankshaft sprocket (bottom right pulley) for the timing belt.

and Figure 15

And to confirm Figure 2.

Nope its def the timing belt. I took the cover off and noticed the bottom right pully was loose. And the belt has alot of play in it. Jumps up and down when i try to start it because of the bottom right hand pully. Ive never done a timing belt but i just replaced the serpintine belt not long ago. And the waterpump/altinator/tensenger (sp) and pully. Is it hard to diy? I mean getting the timing right?

Also if its not something i should be able to handle myself. Does anyone know anyone in the Maryland area that can do this at a good price? Im in baltimore. Also should i just replace all the pullys as well so this doesent happen again?
Thanks,
Tony

Click on 69Boss302's name and send him a PM.

He owns a windshield repair business and IIRC has done a timing belt before. He may be able to give you a good price on it.
