Default idler wobble

Now i'm not totally positive its called the idler. It is the wheel that has the two belts going around it. Well anyway i've noticed that when running it seems to be wobbling a little bit. Any suggestions?

If it's the large pulley in the center of your middle timing belt cover, it is the crankshaft pulley which drives all the others. It will wobble a little bit, but you should check to make sure the bolt running through the center of it is tight.

I had this problem. The main crank pulley is actually made of 3 pieces [pressure?] fitted together, a center metal pulley, a rubber (i think it is) ring called the harmonic dampener, and an outer metal ring. Check to see if the harmonic dampener is sticking/slipping out. It happened on mine and caused the pulley to wobble when the engine was on. Took it in to the dealer and they fixed it under warranty though.
