Is it safe to drive a car without the serpentine belt?
For a long period of time? No, it is not. It will cause a lot of harm to your car. The serpentine belt not only controls the alternator (which without, your battery will be drained fairly quick), but it also controls the water pump (depending on the system in question). Without the water pump in activity, you risk overheating your car and causing VERY expensive repairs. .
For a brief distance on the other mitt (say to the mechanics shop a mile down the road), you shouldn’t have too many problems. Just pay close attention to the temp gauge on the car and make sure you are not overheating. .
Depending on the distance, you should have it towed if you’re attempting to get more than a few miles away. If you know enough about your car, you can always get a rail to the auto parts shop and grab a fresh belt. (Takes about Ten minutes to switch and you only need a socket wrench to tighten/loosen the tensioner nut.) .
Regardless, I do not suggest driving it without a belt for anywhere over than a few miles. Also be sure to drive securely as you will need extra time to turn without your power steering.
