The tensioner is no longer working correctly, the belt is worn, a pulley is broken or all of the above.

Best Answer

the tensioner pulley doesnt wiggle but the powersteering one does car ran out of oil completley then rip fan belt not in half but two thread lines off why does car shut off

Tom Demyan

Because without your belt turning the alternator and other accessories, it will shut off. Also when you say car ran out of oil, do you mean the power steering pump or the engine oil. If engine oil all leaked out, your motor will seize and stop. Is that what you are saying?
