problem #1

Neon 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 87,000 miles
We heard a pop in our engine while driving down the highway, uncertain that it was our vehicle we continued, as we exited the highway we had lost power steering it seemed. Continue home about 20 miles and once we pulled into our driveway we opened the hood to find our power steering belt had come off. While investigating the belt, noticed our drivebelt idler pulley had disintegrated. We have been trying to order this part from several auto part stores and the dealer to no avail. It is on factory back order for over the past month, which has left us with only one vehicle for our household.
