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.
