My husband was driving his car and knows nothing about cars. He said that the battery light came on, kept driving. Engine light came on, he turned around and than the coolant started smoking. He pulled over looked inside and found that the serpentine belt had snapped and the idler pulley had a bad bearing causing it to snap. Yesterday I replaced the pulley and the belt and now the engine won't turn over. It starts to act like it will and than just won't. Please help.
It is a 1997 Mercury Sable, V6 3.0 engine-104,000 miles.
