He was courteous and on time. He even caught another problem that was in the works (faulty water pump) and set up a follow up repair time for that problem. Overall, he did a good job and we're happy with his services!

Eduardo arrived at 8am right on the dot, and was working on my car within a few minutes. He was finished with my Sonic in about 30 minutes, which was shocking, because with how cramped everything is in my car's engine bay, I figured replacing the drive belt tensioner was going to take at least an hour or more. He handed me my old tensioner, had me sign, and he was on his way. An excellent mechanic that I would definitely recommend, and also one I would re-book again for future work!

Had a great repair experience with Justin. From speaking with him I could understand he is passionate about automotive repair and doing the job right. He was very helpful with diagnosing my problem and helping to only spend the amount necessary to fix it. Wish all mechanics were more like Justin!

Bottom Line, Mr. Samadullahs is a super representative for your team. Sam not only has a great and out going personality, but he greeted and treated me as if I were one of his special and steady clients. On the day of our meeting, Sam arrived on time, spent some moments reviewing the problem, examined the engine and the parts I had purchased, then with his CAN-DO attitude and cheerful personality, Sam jumped into the physical work. As with any older mechanical motor, there are always surprises requiring strategy changes and innovations to complete a job. It was really a pleasure to watch a pro like Sam keep his out-going personality, his smile, and his CAN-DO attitude as he worked through each situation. Sam has won my respect with his No-Nonsense and Lets-Make-It-Happen professionalism, his wining personality, and his super people skills. Keep up the great work Sam!

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.
