Chet was great... like a trooper, he worked in the dark with a head-light and a smile! He took the time to show me what the problems were and possible problems down the road to look out for. I appreciate that he was professional and knowledgeable while working without wasting time. My cars runs great now and I am so happy to not be nervous jumping into with a 91 year old mother in the seat next to me. Thank you! Linda G.

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.
