Carlos was indeed a 5 star mechanic! He identified the problem with my car, he used his time efficiently and took the time out to explain the variables that were hindering my car in addition to recommendations for preventive care. I have NEVER met an honest mechanic, Carlos has truly revived my faith that not everyone is out for a quick buck. Kudos to the use of knowledge, expertise and professionalism of Carlos!

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.
