Danny was on time, began fixing my car right away. Turned out the noise I was hearing, was a separate problem he came to fix. I had the wrong part. He diagnosed it to be something else and gave me the option to have it install as a maintenance up keep. In conclusion he gave me recommendations, full detail of my car's health, voice notes, and pictures. Professional and knowledgeable I would recommend.

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.
