This is my second service at my home by YourMechanic. I have been very happy with the service. My Dad taught me to do preventative maintenance on my cars, and to check the oil often. I have a 2001 VW Jetta, which I love. 166,000 miles and counting. I check the oil every other time I get gas, as VWs burn hot. Both mechanics from YourMechanic remarked how well I maintain my car.

Casey saved me quite a bit of money on parts and labor! My 2002 VW Jetta had the simplest part missing/broken and Casey was able to construct a new one on the spot. Car is driving great, would request work from Casey again!

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.
