I'm curious to see the timing belt too. Your alternator belts look straight so that's good. I had been driving my car several weeks at least before I noticed the damage caused by the rubbing so I'll just guess that your belt is fine. If you do have to replace you will find out it's not that hard once you get started.

My upper timing belt cover has a sizable crack/tear where it meets the lower portion of the cover. Sounds like it could be rubbing against the timing belt there. Hopefully I havenít done too much damage to the belt by starting the car three times.

Iíll do a bit of disassembly over lunch. Will take off the fan, fan/water pump pulley, accessory belts, and timing belt cover and see how it runs.
