Question about 2004 Kia Spectra
Today on the way home, while parked at a stop light with the engine idling and the AC on, when I started to accelerate, there was a chirping sound as if from a belt problem of some kind that went away after a few seconds. When I turned off the ac to hear it better, it went away altogether. Then, after stopping by a store on the way home, when I started it up, the belt popped and broke. I looked under the car and retrieved the belt. I thought it was just to the AC or something and drove a couple more blocks home. Right before my driveway, I started losing power and the tachometer (RPM thing?) stopped working, I coasted into the driveway. The belt that broke looks like it is one of two belts connected to the crank shaft and maybe the power steering pump? I'm only guessing. Help?
It probably ran the alternator too and without it the battery ran down so the engine went dead without any power.
