The car startd up and drove fine till I tryd to go up my drive way its a hill and got half way up it and the car stopped pulling then pressed the gas some more and it died on me, backed down the hill got a run at it and it barley made it, went down the rd and the alternator belt belt broke so my brother drove it like 2 minutes down the rd without the belt on it and set it, put a new belt on and still wouldnt start so found out my battery was dead and wouldnt charge so I got a brand new battery still didnt start, it will turn over but not start. Someone said the belt might be to tight bc u cant move it with ur hands then someonelse said theres no such thing as it being to tight not sure whats wrong with it?

The belt broke for a reason. Remove the belt and see if it starts.
