No they did not use a different belt, there is a bypass pulley where the AC pump sets now, just order the AC delete
pulley, not very expensive, u will need to remove the old pump. You can also go to the link to buy the pulley you need.

A auto parts store can look up the belt for your car but without air conditioning. They should also have the belt circuit diagram.

What size belt do I need to bypass Mercury Sable AC Compressor

I had to do the same thing on my Toyota Avalon. I used a flexible cloth measuring tape to measure around the pulleys (minus the A/C, of course). I had to cut the pulley off the Avalon A/C compressor because of interference issues. You may or may not have to do the same.

Car wouldnt start,

Do you mean the AC belt? If so (I suspect it is) then you must have the AC compressor replaced and a new belt, so that is not an easy at home fix for most folks. It would require special tools and a factory manual.

I have a 2003 Mercury Sable and the AC comprssor is about to break my question is can I still drive my car if the compressor does bresk.

If the compressor locks up or the bearing goes bad in the clutch, it will ruin the belt. All the accessories attached to the belt will not work, like your alternator, power steering pump, and most importantly your water pump.

Air conditioning doesn't work. only blows out hot air

Check and see if the clutch on the front of your compressor engages. If not it could have a leak and not have any freon in it. If it has freon then you have an electrical malfunction on the ac system.

Air compreser froze

yes remove the wire plug off the front of the compressor near where the belt goes.If it is stuck take a pry bar and un stick it,do not put the wire back on.The clutch is maganetized and the bearings are froze up.Usually this will work. If not You will have to either get one from the junk yard and put it on.Or fix your car the right way.
