Tell you what,what is ?

You see the drive belt is off,so the alternator
wouldn't be turning & thus the Battery light

If you got no belt,you got no way to drive the water pump
& it overheats & coolant comes out, once you for
some reason keep driving & pushing your luck

I really have issues with that question & lack of knowledge

I don't mean to be hurtful,but come on

Coolant leaks heavily from passengers side. Started yesterday morning on the way to work. I noticed the vents weren't blowing hot air. Then I noticed the car start to overheat. I didn't drive any more...


Ok, may i suggest that you check your HEATER COIL, you can located it by pulling up " HEATER COIL" for your specific vehicle, this is what your coolant travels thru while hot and air passes thru this coil to produce the heat to warm your vehicle and typically the heater coils are located on the passenger side. Now as far as the leak location, check heater coil connections it could be the coil itself. GOOD LUCK!

Battery light on no powersteering on my 96 ford contour


Sounds like the serpentine accessory drive belt on the engine is either broken or has come off. It drives the alternator and power steering pump, as well as the air conditioning compressor and (depending on the engine) the engine coolant pump. Check the belt (it's on the right, or passenger, side of the engine, between the engine and the fender) and replace it if needed. Also, check all the pulleys that it gos over to make sure they aren't loose. There should be a diagram under the hood of your car that shows how the belt goes on.

I have a 2000 chevy malibu, battery light came on


check your serpentine belt it sounds like it may have stretched or broken. Without the belt working properly your car will overheat due to the waterpump not activating and neither will the power steering or alternator

Engine Seized up on a 2006 Pontiac G6


check the oil and coolant levels. if coolant is low pull the sparkplugs and try to turn the engine over if still not turning free remove the serpentine belt and try again, if it turns over ok check the pullyes on the front of the motor to see if they all turn free by hand. a serpentine belt can prevent an engine from turning over if a tensioner, idler, water pump, alternator, or power steering pump is siezed up or starting to seize. being your battery is bad I'm thinking probably the alternator is seized. hope this helps mike.
