He was professional and courteous but I have to jump my car off every time I want to go somewhere. The lights and everything comes on fine so I think something from the battery may not be connected to the starter properly. I say this because a friend had a similar problem. Now I have to call again. Thankfully I am off but its a Sunday so I don't know if I will be able to get anyone.

Chris is professional, honest and knowledgeable. He even showed up early to my appointment with him, which was refreshing. He is the kind of mechanic you want to work with again and again. I highly recommend Chris to anyone who needs work done to their vehicle. He is kind and personable. I'd give him more than 5 stars if I had the option.

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.
