my Celica broke down...

Sorry if this has already been discussed before but i just really need to vent. Alright so not even a year ago i got my belt tensioner fixed at toyota under warrenty because everytime i turn on the car it squeeks like a bitch so i got it fixed. But yesturday on my way home from my routine oil change at jiffy lube i noticed that all my check lights come on...check engine, battery, etc. then to top it off my car was overheating, then my power steering gave way n i couldnt even turn the wheel. Luckly i was close to home n i barely made it, i had to push my car into my drive way, then it finally died. So i opened the Hood n noticed my belt fell out in the road n my belt tensioner is completely shot angry wtf!!! its been less then ayear since i got a new one! anyone else have this problem???

you kept driving with all the warninglights on?

You can cause much damage by doing that.

Belt failure --> waterpump (engine overheating = really bad), ...
