Hi:
There is a good chance your waterpump bearings failed, and your belt was getting dragged over the drive pulley. Since your engine got hot, the impeller that moves coolant could have broken, so you should investigate that. The coolant could have leaked out the weap hole on the front of the water pump.

I got antifreeze on by belt now my power steering is noisy and stiff when i turn my wheels


If the belt got soaked ...It will be a while to get the anitfreeze to dry out... You will have to get a new belt and clean the pulleys with alcohol.

05 legacy sqealing sound when I'm stopped and turn


All symptoms of a loose or worn drive belt. As the belt wears, it develops slick spots that slip instead of grab. Since the main drive belt drives the power steering and alternator, this would be consistent with your issue.

2008 escalade sqeals. Had the belts changed but didn't help. Only happens when moving. Mechanic can't figure it out!


just check first that which belt sqeals, if its the AC belt then your compressor might b hard so replace it and if its the other belt then jst check your pulleys and bearings they might have gone hard.. if u can replace them its the best but if u can not then simply apply some grease on the belt which is sqealing.. thanks

CHECK ALL THE PULLEYS WITH BELT OFF TO SEE IF ANY HAVE PLAY IN BEARINGS
OR ARE CONTAMINATED FROM PREVIOUS BELTS SLIPPING MAKE SURE THEY ALL ROTATE FREELY WITH NO SOUND
