My car has an automatic transmission.
You most likely broke a serpentine belt. If you open hood and look at belts to see if it is missing or broken. If it is then do not try and drive it since it will overheat and cause engine damage. Have the engine checked by a mechanic like one from YourMechanic to see why the belt broke. It may have been a worn belt or there may be another reason like a bad belt tensioner.
