Sounds like one of your driven accessories is froze ie. waterpump, A/C comp, PS pump, etc. assuming you have enough antifreeze in it...or if not the water pump could have ice inside, pull the belt and try to spin all your accessories by hand to see which one is not turning freely...see if that points you in a good direction

It was 96 outside and temp gauge went from normal to hot lights started coming on then I lost all power. What could this be


Your vehicle ran hot and probably did damage to the engine. Probably blown headgasket and/or cracked head. A compression test will confirm this.

Replaced the serpentine belt but now car won't start


A serpentine belt almost never breaks unless one thing happens---one of the accessories seizes and won't turn.Remove the belt and see which pulley won't turn.The serpentine belt is strong enough to keep the engine from cranking up(better grip on the pulleys compared to the old V-belts).I actually remember a tech 3 stalls down from me sell a customer an engine,only to find the alternator was just seized.(embarassing!)Any one accessory bearing will keep it from cranking up,and I'm sure you'll find it quickly after removing the belt.

2000 chevy prizm won't turn over


Is it possible the broken belt damaged the crank or cam sensor ?
I can't see a way for the serpentine belt damaging the camshaft.
Was the engine running after the belt broke ?
Have you checked the computer for trouble codes ?

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.

Serpentine belt broke..replaced the belt and the battery but wont start..will turn over but not start..sounds like it is free spinning..could possibly be the timing belt


the timing belt is scheduled for replacement at 60K miles, but I dont know why the serpentine belt would break? see if the cam is turning, maybe peek in where you add oil.

Not starting in the cold


it might be because the oil is too thick to do its job or you fluids (gas,oil,coolant hopefully not) are freezing try putting a work light under your hood at night and see if the car starts in the mornings. Depending on how cold it gets a worklight used to work for me up near flagstaff az,
