SOURCE: under the hood smokes

the smoke may be just residual oil burning off.. some vehicles it is almost impossible to clean up all excess oil that spills on the vehicle when changeing the oil.. try driveing it . it should burn off in a day or so.. also check it and make sure its not leaking... if u feel that its not just a leak or excess oil.. take it back to the place u changed the oil and have them recheck it as a precaution.

SOURCE: my 99 ford taurus is registering that it has low

This may be as simple as a split heater hose, you need to locate the leak, check the hoses going into the firwall, the clamps may have eventually pressed into the old hose causing a split. to eliminate this simply replace the heater hoses and clamps, the smell is more than likely coolant leaking onto the exhaust. Check it out, drive safely.

Heard a grinding sound under hood. Car then died.

So does the a/c still work, maybe your compressor is bad? Top off your oil and run the engine and see if you can find out where the oil came from?

Surpintine belt diagram

Two places of information. One is under the hood, usually form on the engine. A small white diagram that will show the proper routing for the serptine belt.

Second. Purchase a auto repair manuel at the parts store and it will show the routing the serpetine belt. If you do not have the correct routing you will never get the belt on.
