My car was hard to steer and was running hot. I opened the hood and noticed one of the belts was not turning. I am not sure which belt it is.
The system would have to be checked to see if the water pump is seized causing the belt to stop moving. The water pump and the power steering share the same belt. The loss of steering and overheating the engine is due to this belt not moving. This may be due to a tensioner or the water pump.
