This is the third time that I've had Chris work on my car, and every time he's saved me a ton of money, was on-time, or early, and was super fast. I've recommended him to my mom, and he saved her a bunch of money too. I recommend him to anyone who needs work done. He doesn't waste time and he gets the job done with what is obvious years of experience.

1. YourMechanic rescheduled my appointment because the parts were not available in time. That should have been determined before scheduling. 2. Wrong parts ordered and given to mechanic. Result: Couldn't fix bad motor mounts without rescheduling for a 3rd time.

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.
