Joshua did a great job for us replacing the air conditioning compressor on a 2001 Saturn L200. He arrived on time and did the job in my driveway for the estimated amount - which was several hundred dollars less than two other estimates. He also did an inspection of the car to identify any other items that may need attention. It was the best car repair experience I've ever had.

Didn't expect any less! He showed up right on time and did his job and now I feel so much more safe driving to work an hour and half every day and then another hour and half home. Thank you so much!

Great experience. All I had to do is to give my keys to Shaun and continue with work (I was at the office). It took about an hour to get the oil and filter changed. It was also nice to get a report on my car after the inspection, I didn't know that is included!

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.
