2000 Ford Escort Repair Question
Ford, Escort ZX2, 2000, 85,000 miles
I'm not familiar with that exact model, but if the car is slowly dieing out as your're driving the charging system is not doing it's job, you're running strictly on battery power, and that's probably good for a couple of hours max, with minimum accessories going.. shredded belt is probably part, or the issue,, have you ever changed the belts??? Put another one on..

Another test to do is wait until the car is completly cooled off, and remove what is left of the belt. Turn by hand the altenator and see if the bearings are bad. It should turn freely with your hand. You may need a new altenator and belt.
