Drive Belt Tensioner Replacement Service & Cost

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.

Allen
31 years of experience
Originally I called to schedule an apt. because I thought my car starter needed to be replaced. I was a big skeptical because it was my first time using Your Mechanic. I made the apt. on Sunday afternoon and within an hour my mechanic Allen called to confirm my apt. and advise what time he will arrive. I was very pleased with how punctual Allen was when he arrived at exactly 7 a.m. sharp. He immediately ran the diagnostic test on my car and advised me that I didn't need a new starter rather a new battery. I was extremely happy because I wasn't spending $259 on a starter; however to change the battery it was $195, but Allen was sweet enough to add a $10 discount since this was my first time using their services, so I ended up paying $185. He ran to the car part store and was back quickly and replaced the battery. He was done with the work and I was on my way to work by 8:30 a.m. I was hoping the battery would have been a little less expensive, but it was worth every penny with the service I received and the convenience that it all happened right in my driveway. Thank you Allen for a great job!!!!!
