What's wrong with the car?

    Sounds like the drive belt broke and fell off ( serpentine belt ) http://partimages.genpt.com/largeimages/980341.jpg And it runs the water pump,Alternator and power steering . You need to bring it to a shop near you to get another belt put on www.repairpal.com/directory belt cost is about $35 But something might have failed and caused the belt to break, Try to go to a shop close by or have it towed because the water pump isn't turning so the car will overheat
