Ouch sounds like your water pump is broken. That can be really a bad thing. The belt doesn't have to be broken for the water pump to be ruined. Check your oil... as long as your oil isn't milky looking meaning your car overheated and ruined the heads or seals then you should be okay at getting the water pump (and timing belt as they go hand in hand) replaced.

Why did the car die going down the road ? the lifters sounded like they were knocking right before it died

Broken timing belt and a blown engine that what it sounds like. I believe that car has a interference engine which means if timing belt brakes everything in engine smash together

Ac quit working right after speedometer quit working around 60 mph. the rpms after i got off the interstate started to jump and my steering wheel seemed hard to turn

Hello, The reason why it was hard to steer was the engine wasn't running. The rpm, seedo, air condition, power steering does work if the engine has died. First check to see the belts are on the pulley and rolls in the engine carpment. If they are on and not broken then you other problem.

Will you car start, if doesn't. You could have run out of fuel?. Power steer pressure valve is faulty, broke a timing belt, run out of oil and the engine quit working. Engine got hot and stopped.

If it not starting, call a wrecker have them take to a garage of your choice. GB...stewbison

Broken water pump

It is below the A/C compressor, above the power
steering pump. It's the silver pump in the picture below with the 3 gold bolts in it. You'll need to remove the belts, water pump pulley,timing cover, it will help to get to stuff thru the passenger side wheel well.

95 toyota camry died and turns over but wont crank

If your timing belt broke while driving, there WILL be engine damage. Valves will not be moving in response to your pistons continuing to move. I hope that it is not your timing belt. Check your ignition module, first, that's easier.

Hope this helps!

Car backfired and died. would crank (very fast) and either not start or start and die. Let it sit for a few days. Now will start and run, "ticking" from engine and water in oil. Head gasket or timing...

If you replace your head gasket, you'll have to replace your timing belt too...

NEVER re-use an used timing belt!

Water in oil, can be a sign of worn head gasket, yes!
