Robert
26 years of experience
I appreciate very much that Robert was very thorough in his inspection & diagnosis of my truck's idle & related issues. His inspection found (and pointed out to me) that the carburetor base plate was leaking. He also checked all vacuum lines, replaced / fixed a couple of them, and identified another that he'll fix next time. He also pointed out that the distributor cap needs to be replaced. He ordered the parts on the spot and set another appointment to complete the work. In addition, he checked my radiator, tires pressure, & brake pads. Robert is very professional, efficient, and personable. A great asset & representative of Your Mechanic. THANK YOU!!

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.
