Check for a bound up alternator, coolant pump or other pulleys. Also make sure to check the Power Steering pulley for broken edges, they are plastic and with age tend to break

Could be many things. If you have snapping and pain either the soft tissue or the cartiligue in the joint is dammaged. Specifically for me, it's degenerative arthritis. Basically, it's the premature break down of the cartiligue in the joint which causes a throbbing pain and swelling.
