Absolutely NOT! The pulley shown looks like the belt tensioner....drive this vehicle without the belt and tensioner and the engine will burn-up. Get the vehicle towed to a shop and get this tensioner replaced. From the look of the picture, the pulley isn`t the only thing broke or damaged.
Anytime a part falls off your vehicle, do not drive the vehicle until you get it fixed.
Hi there: If the Check Engine Light illuminates, stays on, and there are performance problems. This means that a vital component of your emission control and engine management system has a serious problem. It usually involves a component or system needed for the vehicle to run at all. In most cases, drive the vehicle as little as possible. In many cases, the vehicle is not safe to drive at all -it could stop or stall out at any moment. It is best to pull over to a safe place and have the vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for a thorough inspection and repair.
I suggest visit Autozone or Autoshope with OBD scanner reader tool, sometimes they make this job for free.
I am assuming that you are talking about the RED brake warning lamp and not a YELLOW Anti-lock Brake Warning lamp. If this is not correct, please let me know. There are several things that can cause this. The parking brake my not be released properly. The switch for the parking brake may be defective. Your brake fluid level could be low. (If it is, it is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT that you find out WHY!) Or you could have a brake system hydraulic failure.
In any case, it is NOT SAFE to drive the vehicle until the CAUSE has been determined. It may be safe to operate the vehicle temporarily if you find it is being caused by a defective parking brake switch, but any of the other possible causes make the vehicle DANGEROUS to drive.
There are many yellow lights on vehicles. They can be different on the same make and model of any particular vehicle depending on what option packages your vehicle is equipped with. Your best bet is to look it up in your owners manual. If you do not have an owners manual, I offer this advise: On all vehicles with the warning lamps in the instrument cluster, the yellow lamp are advisory lamps. ie. telling you that there is a malfunction with a system or letting you know that certain systems have been disabled. It is usually safe to operate the vehicle with the yellow warning lamps illuminated long enough to get the vehicle to a repair facility. (Check Engine Lights, Airbag Lights, Low washer Fluid Lights, etc.)The red lamps on the other hand, mean that the vehicle is not safe to drive before the cause of the lamp coming on has been resolved. (examples are the red Brake Warning Lamp, The Engine Teperature Warning Lamp, The Oil Pressure Warning Lamp.)
Since you stated the the lamp is yellow, I would say that it would be safe to drive the car to your local repair facility and ask them about it and get a professional opinion of what to do about it.
Safe, yes. Easy, no. You'll be driving with manual steering which is not easy after the ease of power steering. Drive it around the block and get a feel for the effort involved, and then decide if you're up to the 25 mile trip home.
