Mr. Reyes arrived early for the appointment. This was very helpful. He explained the service he was asked to do and also noted that he would check all other areas of the vehicle for function and safety. He completed the service in remarkably short time. He was friendly and professional and told me what to expect in an email regarding billing and invoice. Mr. Reyes is definitely an asset to your organization. Because of him, I will continue to do business with www.YourMechanic.com and recommend to my friends and family. The entire experience was very clear and easy and the prices are very fair.

First of all, I had higher expectations from this service. Everything he did, I could have done myself. It was not worth the money. The level of professionalism was very casual and average. He checked a few things and said that I should buy it because it is well worth the money. My concerns were kind of brushed off. He was at least kind. Not even five miles after driving the car off of the lot, I notice the check engine light. I have not gotten it checked because of the cost and anxiety. I wanted this service because the last time I bought a car, the check engine light came on a few days later and started a bunch of problems. Months later with this car, it has began to sound super rough and has been leaking fluid since I brought it home. It's pretty bad. I have been putting this off because the thought of it brings me anxiety and make me sad.

Norman was the most professional and honest mechanic I have ever used. Not only did he check out my vehicle for other signs of trouble but due to a faulty gasket he was forced to take my water pump off a second time. He did so without any hesitation, in the blazing hot sun and still completed the job within the time frame I was quoted. His knowledge and commitment to service is by far the best I have seen in a mechanic. This is my go to guy from now on!

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.
