    It is not uncommon for the harmonic balancer ( lower crankshaft pulley) to fail on these cars. There is a rubber insulator between the outer metal and inner metal portion that dry rots. So with that said the outer portion breaks away and starts to spin independently. Causing a squeal type noise. Hope this helps you.
