Dave was very friendly. I only got an oil change, but he was very knowledgeable and helpful with other car questions I had. He even arrived early to the appointment.

Rod

Rod was good and explained everything, this was the first time I used this service. They had the appointment before mine take longer than normal, so he attempted to reschedule because he was running behind. Since I could not reschedule, Rod came out as he originally promised and took care of business. So he showed up 45 minutes after our appointment, but was understandable and Rod clearly communicated every step of the way. I had his cell phone also so I could communicate with him directly (if needed) and not a dispatcher, which was good to know.

Richard came right on time. He was very patient and knowledgeable, listening to all my concerns and showing me all the various problems he found. I booked him for just an inspection, and it was very thorough and broken down into priority levels, which is exactly what I needed and wanted. Definitely recommend him!

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.
