Shaun was perfect. Super pro. Courteous. Excellent. Had some oil drops under my Ford Explorer before Shaun came. He checked and told me it was nothing serious. After he did the oil change there was a oil on the road under the car. I cleaned as much as I could and will check in the coming days if oil is still leaking. For the rest he was fantastic.

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.
