I was happy with Kenneth’s diagnosis! It wasn’t what I thought (power steering pump replacement) and I saved $$$. I felt completely at ease with his repairs to replace a tensioner and pulley and in future, he will be my go to repairman.
Very prompt and professional, what a delight and gentleman

Tj as always was EXCELLENT, HOWEVER, your web site did not allow me to give him FULL information regarding my vehicle. The result was that FOR THE SECOND TIME he arrived with incorrect parts for MY BMW 328 i CONVERTABLE with CALIFORNIA immersions hardware. Your company could have saved time and money if he had had full information ahead of his arrival. ...... M Phillips

Melvin called me the day before my appointment (on Super Bowl Sunday nonetheless) to talk about the issues with my car. He arrived a tad early and fixed my car into the dark of night. I had to go to work and he didn't feel comfortable leaving my key in the console in the car and so he brought it to me at work! Melvin was top notch and my car is all the better because of him.

Matthew is extremely polite, personable, and a pleasure to deal with. He is both patient and thorough. He had to completely undo the work of another mechanic and locate all problems caused by their poor workmanship. He went above and beyond to ensure my vehicle was fixed completely and correctly. He takes pride in his work and it shows. I will be using Matthew for any and all future car repairs.

FRANKLY, I DID NOT EXPECT THIS TO BE AS GOOD AS IT WAS. THE FIRST IMPRESSION WAS MISLEADING (HOW COULD HIS HUGE BODY CROUL UNDER COMPACT CAR). BUT HE DID THAT VERY FAST AND VERY PROFESSIONAL WAY. I THOUGHT THE PROBLEM WAS STEERING PUMP AND ORDERED THAT SERVICE, BUT HE FOUND THE PROBLEM WAS BELT TENSIONER. THIS ALONE LOWERED FINAL BILL MORE THAN 31%. AND ALL OF THIS WAS HAPPENING WITH SMILING FACE UNDER SCORCHING SUN. THANK YOU KEVIN.

Robert has a positive attitude and is very professional. He got my vintage (ancient?) Mercedes all patched up and running again. I would definitely recommend Robert without hesitation!

He was early, communicated when he was in transit, did his work quickly. And he explained what he did and what else he sees. Great job overall.

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.
