This is my first time hearing of something like this. Patrick was very nice. I guess he had time available earlier than my appointment and asked if i would like it done sooner and I was like "yesss that would be great" .....i was able to drive my own car for lunch. Simple things in life to make my life easier is always appreciated.

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.
