Jason

Very impressed with his technology. When I peaked on him, I noticed he was using a laptop to do a diagnostic. He informed me that my Camshaft Adjuster Solenoid needed to be replaced. He offered to pick up the part and fix it that day. I was impressed that he was willing to drive out of his way to fix my car. He completed both jobs in a timely manner. My check engine light is no longer on and my car drives like it's brand new! I am very happy with his work and will recommend him to everyone I now.

This was the first time I used this service. Deuwn was very courteous and knowledgeable. He came actually earlier than expected and did a thorough inspection and the price was way less than what I thought it would be. Will definitely use this service again.

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.
