I would vote 6 stars if I could. The man is awesome. He spent 1hr ish with traffic and then tried to find my tricky complex driveway entrance into my apartment but then he made jokes about it. Funny guy, straightforward, clear and simple explanations to someone who doesn't know anything about car like me, passionate with his work, fast and professional. 1000/10 would work with him again.

This turned out to be a great deal. I bought a Groupon for an oil change and Patrick came to my place of work and changed my oil in the parking lot. No waiting around for an hour at Quick Lube and I got it for half price. Outstanding!!

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.
