Question about 2006 Mazda 3
Hi there ,
What probably happened is that the AC went faulty, the AC compressor pulley got stuck, and the belt that runs the AC got stuck and started slipping over the pulley causing the smoke and wearing the belt.
The squealing noise that you hear now is probably caused by the worn belt slipping over the pulleys, and when you turn on the faulty AC, this will start opposing resistance against the serpentine belt, causing the engine to stop.
Replacing the serpentine belt may fix the squealing noise, but if you turn on again the AC , this will probably damage again the belt, and may also cause more collateral damage.
Replace the serpentine belt as a temporary solution , then replace the
AC or have it fixed.
