Question about 1998 Hyundai Tiburon
I own a 1998 Hyundai Tiburon a belt broke on my car today and i lost my power steering my battery light started flashing,the thermostat light came on and the gauge went up to 120 but my car did not overheat. could everything that happened have been from the belt or could something else be wrong with my car, and what belt is that?
Yes it is caused by your belt. now do not drive the vehicle at all until new belt is instaled. the belt is called a serpentine belt and it is the only one on the vehicle. it runs the power steering pump, your alternator, and your water pump. now keep in mind you temp gauge will not work untill it is to late because there is no colant bein sent threw your engine block. make sure to have some one put the belt on that has done it before because the belt can go a couple of different ways one the pullys but if it is not the right way your water pump could spin backwards and this will overheat your engine because the water is supposed to flow only one way due to the thermostat. so you will not gett any cooling. and i repeat do not drive car until the belt is replaced. and the correct way to route the new belt should be located under the hood on a diagram. i hope this information was helpfull to you. please rate my solution

Belt most likely came apart from another cause. A pulley could have locked up. Make sure all accessory pulleys spin freely and have no play in the bearings or you will likely throw another belt.

Only 2 parts remaining are the thermostat and waterpump. Always start with the thermostat when diagnosing an overheating problem. If the car is overheating constantly under all conditions and coolant is backing up into the reservoir, it's very likely to be the thermostat. If it only overheats at low speed or idling, it's more likely the waterpump.
