The Fan Belt

If your fan belt breaks, a whole bunch of odd things start happening. First off, you will get a red light in the centre of the dashboard. Then your brakes will stop working, and the gearbox will stop changing gear properly. And your lights will start fading. And your power steering goes weird. And oil starts squirting out of the bottom of the engine. It's all because there are servos connected to the fan belt wotsit, and if the belt breaks they all stop working. The minute the new belt is fitted, it all starts working again. The oil squirting out the bottom of the engine is in fact coming from a special pressure release valve, and is not the engine splitting in half. Hopefully...
