My h2, 2004 suddenly overheated very rapidly, only two days after being serviced. The air conditioning made a high pitched squeaking sound minutes before this happened. Engine then shut down and coolant...

Sounds like the ac compressor locked up and the belt snapped from rubbing on it. Once the belt snaps, the water pump stops and the engine overhears.

The serpentine belt squeaks. I'll check the belt & the tensioner. Anything else I should look for?

The Corolla's has a hydralic belt tensioner. When you replace the serp belt you need to buy a factory Toyota belt. The reason why the after-market reproduction belts are slightly long or short. This
will either cause a squeaky belt problem or a over adjusted belt condition which could burn up one of your engines accessories (p/s pump, alt. etc.)

Air compreser froze

yes remove the wire plug off the front of the compressor near where the belt goes.If it is stuck take a pry bar and un stick it,do not put the wire back on.The clutch is maganetized and the bearings are froze up.Usually this will work. If not You will have to either get one from the junk yard and put it on.Or fix your car the right way.

One pulley does not move all the time with the serpentine belt, but when it does you can hear a rattling sound and when the pulley stops so does the sound.

That should be your air conditioner pump. If you turn off the AC or the defroster it shouldn't turn on.

If it is very noisy it should be replaced. There should be a wire or plug on it that you can disconnect if you want it to quit running.

If you do disconnect it, your air conditioning will not work anymore.

There is a magnetic clutch that activates whether the pump is running or not
