Sounds like the altenator failed and you just made it home on the power in the battery. Check or have the altenator checked.

Grinding noise from belt area

Could be the alternator going bad I only say that because there is a wire in the wiring system that is common to the ignition switch , the , alternator , and the transmission as well as the ECU, inhibitor switch, and the TCU. If the alt. bearing going out then I suppose it could cause a short and keep the circuit connected preventing it from shutting off. If you can't turn it off, try disconnecting the positive post of the battery, if it s the alt. was not putting out and I would check it then. At first I was going to say the ignition switch and the starter was staying engaged but you said it was coming from the belt area so that's why I'm leaning towards the alt. and not a tension or idler pulley . They going out would not keep the engine from stopping. If the engine did not stop when you disconnected the alt. then the priority at the moment is to stop the engine. You can do it by going to the panel that has the engine relay and fuses in it. Look to see which is the fuel relay and or fuse and pull it out. It may say fuel pump relay anything along those lines. this will shut your fuel pump off thus the engine will not continue to run and you can further investigate to see if the alt. is able to turn or if it's making a grinding noise when you turn it by hand. Of course you will have to take the belt loose to inspect this and while your at it you may as well check to make sure that none of the other pulleys or water pump is wearing/worn out also.

Mitsubishi mighty max 3.0 v8 loud noise coming from the fan area

If the fan is attached to the water pump tahe hold of a blade and try back and forward towards the motor. If there is movement there it will be either a fan hub failing or a water pump bearing. Second check remove the fan belt and check for noise.( idle engine for short period of time) If it is gone confirm pump by spinning any adjuster pulleys and check for noise or rough movement

Started engine, heard a grinding noise & smoke

Sounds like one of the accessory pulleys locked up and smoked the serpentine belt. The air conditioning pump would be my first suspect, but grab all the pulleys and turn them. The problem pulley will probably be discolored, and have belt residue on or near it.

I have a 2009 corrolla when the engine is cold or has not been running for couple of hours. It will make a grinding noise when you start the engine, it only lasts 1-2 seconds

No idea without hearing it to be honest but if you suspect the engine and not the gearbox then try adding a can of STP or wynns oil additive and see if this stops the noise ,if it does then you know that you have a oil pressure relief valve problem as the engine is not holding oil in the filter and its all running back into sump ,but a grinding noise ?? could be a bearing on teh timing belt or something and without hearing the noise i just couldnt tell you

My engine is making a gurgling grinding sound near

Is the coolant system completely full? It may have air in the system and what you are hearing is the air trying to pass the water pump.
You could also be hearing the valves and air flow through throttle body.
