Question about Mazda Protege
Depending on how things are arranged under the hood, if you have a defective hose or loose clamp that allowed coolant to leak onto belts, it could cause the drive belt for the alternator to slip as the coolant is pretty slippery. The overheating could well come from a failed thermostat - I just replaced one on our Outback. That would also explain the coolant loss and belt contamination.
