My car broke down and had to be towed to my apartment. I used Tom's services to diagnose the car. He kept me informed about the details of the diagnostics he ran. Unfortunately, the problem with my car was bigger and Tom told me that it will take many more hours to diagnose. He was very honest and laid out all the options for me. Sadly, it is my car's fault and not Tom's. He tried to do his best.

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.
