Can I run a supercharged engine without the supercharger working?

Asked by Sep 06, 2015 at 12:41 PM about the 2000 Buick Regal GS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car is making a screeching noise. I changed both idler pulleys (smooth
tension pulley and grooved alignment), but the noise persists. When I
removed the belt that drives the supercharger the noise went away and the
car seems to run okay, with reduced power. Will this cause a problem? I really
cannot afford to put more money into this vehicle right now.

Since you seem committed to letting this car slip into oblivion, just drive it! When it dies, let it go-
