Tien was a few minutes early for my appointment, which to me is right on. He was very professional and got the job done quickly and efficiently.
Tien has a wonderful disposition to compliment his knowledge about his craft. He is resourceful, competent, and has the ability to put the customer at great ease, while explaining the process of his work, as well as, highlighting other areas that may be at risk for future service repair. He's very good.

Thank you very much for a flawless automotive repair at the convenience of my home. Jeff arrived on time with motivation, and professionalism. He started working immediately. The appointment was booked for seven hours; however, he completed the maintenance ahead of schedule. Jeff is very truthful and hard worker. He could have taken advantage of the situation, instead he resisted the temptation of easy money and chose to do the right thing. His professionalism and integrity are seldom unheard of from the auto repair and service industry. Again, thank you for the expertise and for a job well done.

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.
