If you belt break on a 97 buick can you still drive it

Asked by Feb 28, 2015 at 10:56 PM about the 1997 Buick LeSabre

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

To be safe no you can't. The water pump, alternator and power steering are all driven by the serpentine belt, so without those operating the engine will overheat, it will be very hard to steer, and battery is not getting any charge.
