Chet has been servicing my car for a couple of times now. I have a problem with my "service engine soon" that keeps coming on. Chet has my car working much better now and he has come back to "fix the problem with the engine light on again and see what else it may require." He fixed some other things I needed, but the light remains on still. He said and assured me that if anything goes bad I can phone him. My runs a lot better, but these darn cars! Who knows! I know my car will require more things down the line after the holidays, so I am paying attention to the signs... Thank you!

Although my car's system status indicated that the brake pads had to be replaced, Michael discovered that the sensor wire was severed and only needed it to be replaced. Saved me a few bucks. He could have replaced the pads, but chose to do the right thing. Good job Michael!

All about Drive Belt Tensioner Replacement

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.
