Drive Belt Tensioner Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Drive Belt Tensioner all about?

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.

Keep in mind:

Tensioners usually come with pulleys; they are normally replaced together. Also, when replacing a tensioner, the drive belt usually must be removed. A mechanic may recommend replacing the belt as well.

How it's done:

  • Check for any noise in the engine (usually a squeaky or grinding noise).
  • Remove the drive belt(s) (in most cases).
  • Inspect drive belt pulleys.
  • Check the drive belt tensioner.
  • Remove and replace the tensioner if faulty.
  • Start car to see if noise is gone.

Our recommendation:

Your drive belt tensioner should always be inspected when your drive belt is serviced. During routine maintenance and inspection, your drive belt system should be reviewed to make sure that all the components are in working order. The drive belt tensioner will usually last longer than the drive belts, so as long as your tensioner is inspected or replaced when your drive belts are, your belt system should remain in good shape.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Drive Belt Tensioner?

Unusual noise (squeaky or grinding sound) every time you start the engine.

How important is this service?

The air conditioning, power steering, and alternator in your vehicle are given power through the drive belt. The belt is attached to both the crankshaft and these systems, and transfers power from the engine to drive each of these components. The drive belt tensioner is responsible for keeping the tension in the drive belt, which allows it to continue moving and transferring power. When the drive belt tensioner fails, the tension in the drive belt will begin to diminish, and the vehicle will not operate as well.

Theo has fixed my truck several times now. 2007 Jeep Commander with LOTS of miles on it. He has replaced the water pump when the truck overheated and had to be towed home, replaced the alternator when the truck wouldn't start, replaced battery parts when the truck wouldnt start and had to be towed home, and now he just replaced the starter when the truck would not start again! Each time he has come out, the truck is not working at all. It's always working perfectly before he leaves! He is very professional - lots of communication and I totally trust him to fix the truck in an honest way. He will tell you options if you have more than one, and he does his job quickly and very well. I really hope he is always around, because I feel like I have a mechanic I trust and one that can keep my truck running as long as possible. Thumbs way up.

OMG!! I was not aware of this service until I NEEDED too; nonetheless I was able to book with Chris and he is AWESOME. Not only did he arrive a little early, he also called earlier due to a cancellation. His abilities are not limited and he is VERY professional. We discussed other work need on my vehicle and he was very thorough about the process and quote. THANK YOU SO MUCH CHRIS; I will be scheduling with him again!
