Hi Scott. Thanks for contacting us today. Any time a serpentine belt is replaced, it’s recommended to replace the pulley and tensioner at the same time. Older tensioners and pulleys will create more heat when they are older and can cause premature wear of the belt, leading to the symptom you’re describing. The use of aftermarket components can also cause this to occur. The solution to this issue is to replace the pulley, tensioner, and belt with OEM replacement parts.
