Honorio

Honorio was punctual and very helpful. He immediately identified the problem and attempted all the low hanging fixes. He was also very thorough in his test drives attempting multiple configurations of my sparkplugs and coils in an attempt to identify the exact issue. He was also surprisingly knowledgeable about older Volvos. I would gladly use Honorio again for all my automotive needs.

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.
