Tien was very professional and down to earth. Unfortunately the autoparts shop didn't have the parts for my car otherwise he successfully diagnosed the issue and would have been able to fix it. Definitely going to use yourmechanic again in the future!

He was pretty scatterbrained and didn't really test anything more fully than I already had. Also he decided it was appropriate to insult my car based on it being "girly," and continued along that line after I made it clear that I *like* girly.

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.
