You can Drive for a short distance with a Broken Serpentine Belt, but you will definitely want to watch your temperature light as within a few minutes your engine will get hot and overheat. If your Engine gets Hot, Do not Drive your vehicle.
A Serpentine Belt, or Fan Belt, wraps around your engine and carries power to the alternator, the air conditioner and your power steering pump. If it is worn or cracked, it will begin to slip and squeal. When you hear this squealing sound, that is a good indicator that your Fan Belt or Serpentine Belt is about to break. You should locate an Auto Repair Near Me to get your Vehicle looked at immediately before the Belt Breaks.
If you hear a flapping sound, it is likely that the Serpentine Belt has broken. An Auto Repair Mechanic can replace a Worn, Cracked or Shredded Belt. Your belts should be inspected with every Oil Change as part of the Routine Auto Maintenance.
