Why wont my car start and what could be the cause of my steering locking up.

(1995 Volvo 960)
This is the first time this has happend. I replaced the battery 4 months ago, i replaced the spark plugs 2 months ago as well as my fuel pump. My car has oil and power steering fluid. Its been using coolant like crazy though. I was turning and all of a sudden i wasnt able to steer. I made it into a parking lot and my car started smoking. After it stopped i tried to start it and my car would turn over but it will not start.
How long have you had this problem? Just started

Inspect drive belt(s) for damage due to locked driven accessory.

Locked or frozen driven component will definitely ALL of cause those symptoms!

Good luck!

With belts removed - will engine start?
