Jose came two hours earlier, which would have been okay, but I was not ready. Being too early is as bad as being too late. I would expect an email or phone call asking if a change on time would be okay. Also, they didn't give to him enough coolant to completely fill the cooling system, which was completed with tap water. This wasn't his fault, since the system calculates the parts and order them automatically. However, my car now doesn't have the 50/50 water and coolant ratio. Plus tap water is not as good as distilled water. Other than this, he did an excellent job.

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.
