Well I was at the mall eariler and I was about to leave I start up the car and start to drive off. When I turn out of the parking space I notice my steering wheel starts jerking like I have no power steering. I repark the car and I see the belt was basically off and I look underneath the car and see a lot of oil on the bottom of the oil pan. So now my car is sitting at the south hill mall and I walked back to my apartment. I called into work and they are letting me take care of the car tomorrow. Just wondering if I can get a good deal at a shop or some help tomorrow.

I hope it's there in the morning. Down here they'll tow your car if you leave it in most parking lots overnight.

Hey Joe. Give Paul a call (Ready247) He's literally ready 24/7. See if he can hook it up tonight and park it somewhere. It's better than leaving it at the mall.

1-253-579-4083

Well thanks for the number. My friend just helped me move the car from the mall to a tune up shop down the road from the mall. I'm going to see if they can get me a new belt and tensioner and see where the oil leak is coming from.

At S. Hill mall I wouldn't be worried that they were going to tow it . . . I think it's more likely to get stolen! It's happened to me and three other people I know! But looks you got it out of there before that could happen!

I got some bad news guys, it looks like when the belt came off it twisted a bracket and it ripped out a couple bolts from the block. When it did that I think it made a crack in the block so its leaking a lot of oil. Now I pretty much need a new engine

:wah?!: :wah?!: what the...how the....why the...holy shit batman...damnit jim.:stab:

now for some reason that doesnt make sense to me because i would think that a belt would snap before ripping bolts out of a block. If that did happen that sucks ass..sorry to hear about that if you need anything i can get parts from dodge at cost
