Peter is nice and full of experience. He diagnosed my car noise problems immediately and get it fixed easily. He removed unnecessary parts I ordered and explain me the reason concisely, showed me how engine works and guide me to the right place for the muffler issue. All of the helpfullness makes me feel reliable and appreciated. Thanks Peter.
Peter knows his stuff. He is the "go to guy" for My Mechanic and has helped me with past issues when another mechanic messed something up. Highly recommend and will use again.

I originally booked Robert for a timing belt and water pump replacement (a different mechanic had told me it needed to be replaced). Upon inspection Robert informed me that my timing belt was in practically new condition and did not need to be replaced. A lot of mechanics would have probably just charged me for the timing belt replacement anyway and not even done the work, as I would have never known the difference. I don't know if it's yourmechanic's business model that produces honest mechanics or if Robert is just an exceptionally honest one, but either way I was very happy to avoid a much more expensive repair. Robert ended up doing a few other relatively minor repairs on my car that he noticed and I ended up with a much smaller repair bill that I originally expected. I'll definitely plan on using Robert in the future.

Drive Belt Tensioner Replacement Service

What is the Drive Belt Tensioner all about?

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.

Keep in mind:

Tensioners usually come with pulleys; they are normally replaced together. Also, when replacing a tensioner, the drive belt usually must be removed. A mechanic may recommend replacing the belt as well.

How it's done:

  • Check for any noise in the engine (usually a squeaky or grinding noise).
  • Remove the drive belt(s) (in most cases).
  • Inspect drive belt pulleys.
  • Check the drive belt tensioner.
  • Remove and replace the tensioner if faulty.
  • Start car to see if noise is gone.

Our recommendation:

Your drive belt tensioner should always be inspected when your drive belt is serviced. During routine maintenance and inspection, your drive belt system should be reviewed to make sure that all the components are in working order. The drive belt tensioner will usually last longer than the drive belts, so as long as your tensioner is inspected or replaced when your drive belts are, your belt system should remain in good shape.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Drive Belt Tensioner?

Unusual noise (squeaky or grinding sound) every time you start the engine.

How important is this service?

The air conditioning, power steering, and alternator in your vehicle are given power through the drive belt. The belt is attached to both the crankshaft and these systems, and transfers power from the engine to drive each of these components. The drive belt tensioner is responsible for keeping the tension in the drive belt, which allows it to continue moving and transferring power. When the drive belt tensioner fails, the tension in the drive belt will begin to diminish, and the vehicle will not operate as well.
