Jamahl

This was the best interaction I've ever had with a mechanic. Jamahl was on time and communicative through the whole repair process. He diagnosed the issue right away and clearly explained my options and best course of action to get my car up and running. When he came out to do the repair (in the rain!!) he kept me updated the whole time and got the issue resolved. I highly recommend using him as a mechanic and I plan to for any car troubles down the line!

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.
