Question about 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse
The crank shaft is not froze up if the engine is running. Without knowing how severe the situation is, it is probably best to remove the belt and feel each pulley or drive wheel to detect the condition of the bearings. It should be very clear which pulley bearing is loose by "wiggling" the pulleys. One of the pulleys will have a lot of play in the bearing. Also the pulley with the bad bearing will be hard to turn by hand with the belt off. Be sure to check every pulley on that belt circuit, except the crank shaft, you can't turn it by hand.
