Question about Chevrolet Silverado 1500

I'm not quite sure whats wrong with my truck, but I watched it die after having been on for about a min. The belts seemed to seize up and stop all of a sudden. I'm not sure where to start diagnosing.

Engine stopped while driving on highway..I'm told the engine seized possibly due to the timing belt even tho the belt was changed as required..approx. 8'000 miles ago. it now has 121,000 miles. What

Did you see them replace the belt ???
Its a complicated process, and should have taken several hours to replace. Mechanics sometimes lie.
If it was replaced, it's possible the failure occured from lack of oil, metal fatigue, hydraulic lifters can break, valves can drop into engines, any number of things can go wrong.
Unless you pay to have someone open the engine back up, there's really no way to positively prove what happened.

My truck quit running last night and would not turn over the motor - I do not believe it is seized - it had plenty of oil. The battery is still strong and a jump made no difference. It seemed to me that...

yes, it can. Anything with a pulley and a bearing can seize up from the air pump, to the alternator, to the idler tension pulley, to, yes, the a/c compressor.

It seems like something snapped in my steering, the belts squealed for a second and then I didn't have any power steering and my cars runs rough now

Make sure the serpentine belt is still on the engine. Sounds like a pulley seized and the belt snapped. The belt runs everything including your alternator which is likely why it isn't running right...eventually it will stall and not start, or, overheat.

2001 mazda protege dx 5 spd dies, brakes are seized up?

It seems that one of the pulleys is bent, or you are using the wrong timing belt. I would suggest changing them. That would probably explain why the timing belt keeps breaking. The braking problem can be related, or you simply have a leak somewhere in the system and should try bleeding the brakes after thorough inspection.

It is possible that your tensioner pulley is seized and will have to be replaced as well. This happened to my 2001 F-150, the tensioner pulley seized and shredded the serpentine belt.

If the ac compressor clutch gives was can this make the engine stop?

If the bearing for the belt pulley on the compressor seizes, the engine can quit and even appear to be seized as well. Remove the a/c belt and try to start the engine.
