I had the coolant pump  replaced in my 996 4s last week and driving home today the engine started making noise, i lost engine power, the warning battery/generator light came on and also lost power steering. Any ideas

Check your serpentine belt and pulleys.

Thanks guys, checked the serpentine belt & it’s definitely slipped. The garage replaced it last week also. When I picked up the car & drove home the coolant level warning came on & they sent someone & filled it with 4 litres. Is it possible they forgot to place the belt on properly too?

Mechanic came by today & we discovered that the bracket in front of water pump (he replaced) was wedged against pump. He suggested I must have hit something but I pointed out there’s not a single scratch dent etc on the under carriage and the frame is bent on the top side touching the pump pulley. Having it towed back
