My car has been acting sluggish upon starting for about a week or so.I was told that a belt needed fixed and/or tightened. Today when I started it, it took me cranking it 3 or 4 times before it would go. I drove it 10 miles or so and pulled over for an emergency vehicle. When I tried to get going again, the lights on my dashboard came on and the steering wheel was very difficult to turn. I parked the car and didn't try turning it on again and just had it towed. I was also told the car had an oil leak though I wasn't told where it was leaking from. Any idea what the problem may be?
My car has 197000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
