Q: Sounded weird when I started it, steering busted

asked by on

Right when I started it up, I noticed that there was something wrong with my 2006 Kia Sorento. The power steering was nonfunctional and the sound was just… off. I looked under the hood and the fan belt was not moving and looked loose. This car has 76,000 miles on it, will this totally ruin the engine? I want to know what to expect going into this repair.
