Service

What is the Drive Belt Tensioner all about?

A Drive Belt Tensioner is a pulley mounted to either a spring mechanism or to an adjustable pivot point that is used to keep constant tension on your serpentine belt. That is the big long belt in the front of your engine.

The tensioner rides on the outside surface of the belt to put pressure, or tension, on the belt and against the pulleys that drive things like the alternator, power steering, air conditioner, etc.

Keep in mind:

Tensioners usually come with pulleys; they are normally replaced together. Also, when replacing a tensioner, the drive belt usually must be removed. A mechanic may recommend replacing the belt as well.

How it's done:

  • Check for any noise in the engine (usually a squeaky or grinding noise).
  • Remove the drive belt(s) (in most cases).
  • Inspect drive belt pulleys.
  • Check the drive belt tensioner.
  • Remove and replace the tensioner if faulty.
  • Start car to see if noise is gone.

Our recommendation:

Your drive belt tensioner should always be inspected when your drive belt is serviced. During routine maintenance and inspection, your drive belt system should be reviewed to make sure that all the components are in working order. The drive belt tensioner will usually last longer than the drive belts, so as long as your tensioner is inspected or replaced when your drive belts are, your belt system should remain in good shape.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Drive Belt Tensioner?

Unusual noise (squeaky or grinding sound) every time you start the engine.

How important is this service?

The air conditioning, power steering, and alternator in your vehicle are given power through the drive belt. The belt is attached to both the crankshaft and these systems, and transfers power from the engine to drive each of these components. The drive belt tensioner is responsible for keeping the tension in the drive belt, which allows it to continue moving and transferring power. When the drive belt tensioner fails, the tension in the drive belt will begin to diminish, and the vehicle will not operate as well.

Acura CL - Drive Belt Tensioner - La Jolla, California
Fadi was great. Knowledgeable and efficient. Showed up early and got the job done on time, all while I was at work so I didn't have to take any time out of my workday to get the car fixed. Definitely recommend.

Acura CL - Radiator - Laguna Hills, California
Chris A. was amazing! Dispairing over the failure of my aging Acura's radiator, I thought the cost of repairs would total the car. After a few days of asking friends for names of reliable mechanics and getting answers like "call the dealership," I tried turning to the 'net. I read the reviews for YourMechanic and decided that it was well worth a try. They gave me an estimate that was about 50 percent off the prices quoted by the dealer and other foreign car repair shops. We made an appointment on Friday, and right on time, Chris A. drove up on Saturday morning. He not only replaced my radiator and refilled the coolant right in my driveway, he did a thorough check of the cooling system and taught me a lot about the idiosyncracies of my particular model. We benefitted by being able to talk with the mechanic while he was working on my car. It was worth the price of the radiator just for what we learned about the systems. Chris was knowledgeable, patient, focussed, and a great communicator. Did I mention thorough? I have never recommended a mechanic before, but Chris is now my go-to guy. Highly recommend YourMechanic.com.
