Hi there, All these symptoms point to a slipping serpentine belt. It needs to be replaced ASAP. Driving it further will damage your car further. The serpentine belt relies on pulleys and a tensioner to keep it tensioned. If any of these are failing, they will need to be replaced along with the belt. It is very possible there is a problem with the water pump Serpentine

Good luck and get this taken care of soon!
