Check your fluid level, could be a bad pump, make sure a belt is connected to it also.

Trip breaker. Remove dryer plug in cover and check wires. One may be loose or broken. Remember this is 240 volts. Make sure breaker is off!!!

My serpentine belt broke while driving a 1995 ford escort the car died is this normal

You should be able to replace the belt and be running again. If you ran the engine for a long time or high RPM without the belt, you may have overheated it and caused additional problems - but you'd probably gotten a high temperature warning light if that were the case. The serpentine belt provides a way to transfer mechanical energy from the engine to the alternator, power steering pump, A/C condenser, smog pump, water pump, etc. Once that belt breaks - all of these devices cease to function (even though the engine is still running) and will cause the engine to stop eventually.

If you broke a timing belt - that would be a different story - if the engine is an "interference" or a "zero tolerance" type. The valves inside the engine would be crushed by the pistons immediately - rendering the engine in need of some very expensive repairs or complete replacement. Timing belts generally need to be replaced every 50,000 - 60,000 miles (or 5 years - whichever happens first or as outlined in your owner's manual). Engines with timing chains do not require replacement as a regular maintenance item.

Good luck!

Power from house to garage. i wont a switch to turn light on and a double power socket. please could you help me.

Just tap the power on your existing power breaker and laid off the new cable in pipe to your garage. For your socket outlet , you will need to install 3 wires ( +, - and G) and for light ( the switch in your house, you need also 3 wires like socket outlet)
Make sure to power off the electricity breaker before you commence the works.
Regards, Jay

How would i fit down lights into my stairs? i am wanting to place 2 down lights into each step. i am replacing the 50wat bulbs that came with them to new supabrite led 1.4wat blue. just need an idea of how...

Find where the voltage source is controlled to turn the present lights on and off and disconnect. You need to retrofit a Malibu type voltage transformer that will provide the appropriate voltage; from what you say you want a transformer that provides the voltage of the 1.4 watt blue light, most likely 12 volts. When the switch that controlled the old lights is turned on, it will now provide voltage to the Malibu type transformer.
You can check out the Malibu web site for what's available or go to Lowes or Home Depot. Please let me know if you have questions.

How do i take serpentine belt off 95 lesabe

Very simply, there should be a spring-loaded "idler pulley" that keep tension in the belt, locate that and figure out how to release tension, they are all slightly different. Important!!- Make sure you make a diagram of how the belt is on there, so the new one can be threaded properly.
The idler puller usually is one that is just there, not driving an AC pump or alternator, power steering pump, etc. Look for a square hole in the idler pulley itself or it's bracket that a socket wrench driver can fit into. Then slightly put pressure on the socket wrench handle and the pulley should move without too much effort.

Why 1 flickering light?

One of the first things that you want to check, is the wire connections above the light that is flickering. It would be a good idea to check the first light also, and the switch connections, due to the age of the wiring. If all this fails, then you are probably right and the socket of the flickering light should be changed.
It would not hurt to go in grids and work your way thru the house, checking the wiring and tightening the wire nuts, or connectors.
Enjoy :)
