    Got in the car as usual this morning and started up and as I pulled away the massive screech happens and then a puff of smoke came from under the bonnet left it 5 mins and all was fine , but I did drive home in a huge rain storm last night could it have been water on something to cause this ?

    Is it still ok to drive ?
    Thanks

    Sounds like the auxiliary drive belt slipping against a jammed pulley, maybe the water jammed it and it's freed but worth keeping an eye on the warning lights.
