Default Re: '06 Esteem - Crankshaft bent?

It may not be a bent crank shaft, but the end where the pulley mounts would have damages and perhaps a mangled key-way. The free end can be checked for bend or run out with a dial gauge.
Repairing is possible with cold welding products in situ.
It could also be due to the distortions on the alternator mounting.
A good mechanic could fix it for you.
