Robert

Robert is a good mechanic. He came on time and did a good job in replacing the gaskets. It's been two days I didn't see any oil leak. Though my only concern was after the repair Robert forgot to clean the spilled oil on the parking spot. I am not exactly sure, whether the mechanic is responsible for cleaning the already leaked oil on the engine and on engine splash shield. But I expected it be cleaned. Apart from cleaning the oil, he had done a great job. If the cleaning part is not his job, I will definitely give 4.5 stars for his repair. As I expected it be complete giving him 3 stars.

He did an excellent job with my pre-purchase inspection and saved me a lot of money, identifying problems that I would not have been able to catch. The convenience of being able to send a mechanic straight to the dealership was huge! Would definitely recommend both Eugenio and this site to anyone!

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.
