Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Silhouette
The damper could be bad if it's the type with the rubber inbetween the pully and the the rest of the damper. check that and see if it is separated. if not looks like your crankshaft bearings could be bad

I would suggest checking the bolts that attach the pulley to the balancer to make sure they arent coming loose. Also I had the same problem with a pickup two weeks ago the rattling noise started after I installed a new belt tensioner It was loud at start up and when you shut the truck down. It turned out to be the a/c compressor clutch assembly the added tension from the new belt tensioner proved to be too much for the clutch and they seem to act up when the weather gets cold. Just some other things to check. Especially when you said the noise stops when the belt is removed. Most all engines I have seen running without the belt seems to have a little wobble in the balancer to your eye while the engine is running without the belt. Hope this helps
