Question 94 Mercury Topaz runs but pulleys dont turn

I am inquiring about a 94 Mercury Topaz, 2.3L, 4 cyl that runs and drives but none of the pulleys or belts move. There is a loud noise that maybe sounds like ping or lifters and it gets louder with acceleration. Have lost the alternator, power steering etc. which I assume is because the belts are not turning.

Any ideas on what this might be?[email protected]

check the crankshaft pulley or harmonic balancer the rubber is broke in it. Replace the pulley.

This is a "known" concern. The rubber in the crank pulley has failed. Replace the crank pulley, aka crank damper, aka harmonic balancer.
