Still leaking.. it sound like a hose has a hole in it. i dont think stop leak will fix it. look for where it is coming from and replace it. if it is spraying near the serpentine belt it is probaly the water pump. or a hose connecting to it.

Car heater blowing cold air and rubber burnning


If your heater is spraying a light mist through your vents it could be your heater coil. Mine did the same thing, smell rubber burning, then started a light mist through the vents. If you don't get that checked out, it could mess up your water pump and possibly your engine

Your Jeep should only have one serpentine belt. That belt powers the alternator, water pump, and power steering pump.
You should not drive without the belt. I would guess one of the pulleys locked up and melted the belt.

I was driving and all of sudden the serpentein belt ripped and the car started to shake like crazy. then it started to smoke and overheated. one of the pulleys at the bottom, not sure if the harmonic...


Power steering pulley is on the top. The largest pulley is the crankshaft pulley.
But the 2 on the bottom are the crankshaft pulley and ac compressor. Slightly
above those 2 pulleys is the water pump. Which ones not turning?
And when the serpentine belt broke your water pump was no longer circulating
engine coolant because the belt turns the water pump.

When the serpentine belt breaks you should not drive the car even
though it will run. How long did you drive the car after the belt broke?

So you replaced the belt and then started it? And you can actually drive in reverse?
If you drove the car very far with the belt broken you may have done damage to your engine. I mean
its most likely you did do some damage.

Driving my 92 525i bmw on freeway when it all broke loose my Power Steering and then all the lights on dash when on. Also the car over heated. What could have happen?


Serpentine belt broke. A serpentine belt drive runs everything: power steering, ac, alternator (electrical power), and the water pump (explains the overheating). I'd bet anything that your belt broke.

Yes, the serpentine belt runs all those pumps. Water , power steering, alternator ,ect. If its loose have the tensioner and belt checked out and replaced.

Loss of power steering and battery light


Hey there Cyber,

Classic symptoms, belt failure. Be glad you don't have a serpentine belt, the engine would have overheated too.

If you work close to home, it may even be a serpentine and just didn't have time to overheat.

At any rate: One of your belts powers both the Alternator and the Power Steering Pump. That belt is either very loose or laying on the road between your home and workplace.

The good news:
This is one of those lucky circumstances where the more that looks like its broken, the cheaper and easier it is to fix. If it was only the Alt. or P/S that would mean all sorts of diagnostics, tests, etc.

Both at once? The belt.
The cost? Less than $20.00 if serpentine. Less than $5.00 if not.

If the old one is still hanging there, it will be useful when getting a new one (to size it).

Let me know if you feel like replacing it yourself.
If it's a serpentine, click here for the procedure (the trick) to get it on.

Once the new belt is on the only thing you'll need is a jump.

Any additional questions? Just comment me back.

Thanks for using FixYa
