I used the remote start on my car. It started fine but later was not running when I went to leave. I have been unable to start it since.

Last night driving home, the heater would only blow cold air (it was 36• outside). As I reached my destination there was a grinding noise coming from the passenger side which got worse when turning. When I pulled in my driveway, the temp gauge shot up to H. I shut off the car, hood was still ice cold but smelled like antifreeze. Opened hood and a belt on the right side of my engine was shredded. The belt by the water pump is still intact. This belt is on the right side near the battery. What belt is it?

Its at the bottom left side and its yellow

White smoke is coming from the engine, it didn't have oil in it so I put 2 quarts in and it toon awhil after holding the gas pedal down for it to start showing white smoke again, I need to figure out what's wrong with it and a price estimate.

Have an engine with a blown head gasket. Wanted to hear pros and cons as to replace the engine or just have it repaired. The engine has 160K miles. Saw one option with a 3 year warrenty.
