A loose belt will not cause the engine to shut off. a loose belt will squeel. it almost sounds like the AC compressor might of locked up and it causing your neon to shut off. if your neon doesnt have ac or the ac is working properly then its something else.

How do you change a power steering belt


Loosen the bolts that attach the power steering pump to the bracket. then push the pump down. this should make the belt loose enough to get off. then put the new belt on. take a pry bar and stick between the motor and the power steering pump through the top. push on the pry bar to raise the power steering pump and tighten the belt. while pushing on the pry bar to keep tension on the belt tighten the bolts that you loosened and you've changed your power steering belt. this can be done by one person, but it's a lot easier with two.

On my '87 Caravan, why does the car shut off whenever I turn the steering wheel/car? What do I do to make it stop?


Sounds like a loose belt-maybe the belt that controls your power steering ALSO controls the alternator. Check your belt tension, if that's the case, they're probably so worn they need replacing by now. At least tightening the belt might help.

Hope this helps.

Steering went out what to do


Is the belt that turns the power steering pump loose or broken? You mention replacing the tensioner, so I'm guessing the belt is too loose. If it isn't spinning the power steering pump, the steering would be very difficult. The tensioner should have a mark on it which helps to determine if it is worn and needs replacement. This is a good time to replace the belt also, if needed. Once the tensioner is replaced, you will still have difficulty with the steering wheel and ignition until you can start the car. You might try to raise the front end, so turning the steering wheel will be somewhat easier. A slight turn to the right or left should allow you to get the key to turn, and once started, it should be ok.
