Joshua was great!!!! Hecalled me the morning of the appointment and said he was done with his previous appointment early and of it was ok to come early. He ended up finishing everything before our original appointment time. Not only did he get the job down earlier than expected he got it done for significantly less than our original estimate. He was extremely helpful and professional

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.
