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.

Noe was professional, knowledgeable and friendly. However, he never told I would be charged for our discussion. Only after the fact I notice I was charged $80 without every agreeing to it. I will not pay for this unagreed charge.

This was my first time using "Your Mechanic". I found the website when shopping for new brake pads. My dealership wanted hundreds more. Local mechanics wanted me to waste a half day or better just to get a price quote. On a leap of faith I gave this seemingly to-good-to-be-true company a shot. I booked an appointment, surrendered my credit card info and hoped for the best. Immediately, my appointment was confirmed with time, date, original quote, Andy's information and everything else I needed. The next day, Andy called ahead on his way. When he arrived, he located my car in the lot, explained the process and answered all my questions. I handed over my key and walked back to my office fully expecting a call in a couple hours to tell me home much more work needed to be done and that my estimated cost would be twice as high. What happened was: Andy finished early, called me down, walked me through everything he had done. Only after I was fully informed and satisfied did he ask me to review the invoice and sign - for LESS than the original quote. Now, only by a few dollars, but still less! In addition to LOWERING the cost and finishing early, I was emailed a link to a VISUAL and VERBAL inspection report, a written quote I had asked for regarding another area on my car and his advice regarding that work. Now relieved and beginning to believe this service was legit I began to praise Andy and his company. I shared how many people were looking down from our offices wondering what was going on with my car. I explained I would be sharing this experience with all of them and writing his review online and sharing all over social media. Andy is polite, patient and professional. He put me at ease right away. His empathy and knowledge made me feel I had made the right decision from the very beginning. Your Mechanic is my first call going forward. Check out their services and reviews. This is the future of vehicle maintenance and repairs. Thank you, Andy - job exceptionally well done! Chuck from Kansas City, MO

Nice guy and did the work promptly and good but that didn't fix the root cause if my car not starting and niw I spent money on preventative maintenance versus fix the existing problem. One day after the repairs, I'm broke down in a parking lot and the car won't start!!
