If the timing chain broke; your cylinders will not hold pressure because the valves letting air in to your cylinders would be bent. Have the cylinders checked for holding pressure. If your timing chain broke; you will need another engine used or new.

Get someone to change your alternator just a cheap one from the wreckers. or if you don't want it to happen again get a reconditioned one. They are easy to change over.

Have your power steering belt checked and adjusted, or replaced if worn.

Could be just about anything, but given that I had the same symptoms that turned out to the fuel pump, I would check that if you haven't already. Mine would run fine for a while, particularly when it was cold, and tested fine at the shop, but after a while under load, it turned out the pressure would suddenly drop to about 15 pounds. A real pain to diagnose, since when it was in the shop it wasn't under load, so it tested OK.

May be a worn belt or a pulley whose bearings are shot. Remove belt and check it for the ribs having broken down or missing parts of belt. While it's off, check all your pulleys for turning freely, alternator, tensioner pulley, a/c compressor, PS pulley...If you hear any noise when spinning them, or feel any movement like wobbling, or if they have a rough feel, then its likely that pulley needs replacing.
