Sounds Like The Water Pump Has Gone Bad.
ANS 2 - Water pump seal leaking. Very common and easy to change, but often surrounded by other parts, especially on FWD vehicles. It will steadily get worse till you change it, so don't take too long.
Yes it can. A faulty thermostat can cause overheating which will cause coolant to be pushed out of the system.
No, low coolant would cause the opposite.
a leak in a head gasket could cause coolant to go into only one cylinder.
water pump, oil, water, engine coolant....main cause would be engine coolant, just check to see if you have a leak.
there are no gaskets on a tension pulley ther is however a spring and yes it can cause the belt not to run smoothly

A supercharger is controlled by its pulley size. The smaller the supercharger drive pulley is, the higher in boost pressure you will see. Now if you go with a larger crank pulley, this too will cause you to see more boost. So, in all honestly, the only way to really over boost your supercharger is when you mess around with the pulleys.
Leak in heater core
you have to find where the leak is first.
If the radiator is cracked then the vehicle has ran dry on coolant. This would cause the radiator to crack if there wasn't any coolant.
I would be more apt to believe that the power steering pump failing would have caused the belt to jump off and become lodged between the pulley and the motor than the other way around.
If an idler pulley is broken, I would advise not to drive it anywhere. It would effect the power steering, water pump, alternator and coolant fan causing you to get stuck on the road and possibly cost many more $$ in damage.
A damaged heater core will cause coolant or water to leak onto the passenger floorboard.
I believe that indicates your engine coolant level is low or you have lost your coolant
You may have a leak of coolant. Take your car to a shop and tell them you are smelling coolant and may have a leak.
Sounds like you need a tune up By itself low coolant would only cause overheating, if it is overheating that can cause runnimg complaints.
Many things could cause an engine to shake. One, for example, would be low coolant or oil levels.
Could be an A/C coolant leak.
head gasket lets compession push coolant ont into over flow
There are a couple of things that can cause oil to get into your coolant reservoir. A blown head gasket or a broken piston ring are the most common causes.
It could be a bearing in an idler pulley.
Yes, the bearing in that pulley may be going bad.
