I had my timing belt replaced in December of 2011 by a mechanic. Ever since, I have heard sloshing noises from the coolant, my car randomly overheats, and now this happens....

The harmonic balancer is wearing into the timing belt cover, which threw the belts of out line and caused the Compressor belt to come off and rub a groove into the cover as well. I bought a new belt thinking I could put it on, and before I even started I noticed this.

Edit: Appears to have been simply due to age and use as the rubber deteriorated in the pulley. Replaced with Lightened Crank Pulley and haven't looked back.
