My belts have broken. Car overheated, lost power steering, and battery light illuminated. What is wrong with my car? previous website listed above shows a serpentine belt tensioner, does this apply to my 1998 Mazda Protege? it says that it is only for a Mazda Navajo and a Mazda pickup.

Simply check is to replace the serpentine belt tensioner. Looks like this:
Another reason you might have alternator going to die. Try to rotate the alternator rotor without belt on it. If you need to use force no free rotation, replace the alternator.
Please kindly let me know if you need more info
