Noe was great! Very knowledgeable and friendly.
Mr. Reyes arrived early for the appointment. This was very helpful. He explained the service he was asked to do and also noted that he would check all other areas of the vehicle for function and safety. He completed the service in remarkably short time. He was friendly and professional and told me what to expect in an email regarding billing and invoice. Mr. Reyes is definitely an asset to your organization. Because of him, I will continue to do business with www.YourMechanic.com and recommend to my friends and family. The entire experience was very clear and easy and the prices are very fair.

Skilled in identifying cause of sweaking serpentine belt. He discovered the cause was the tensioner pulley bearings wore out. He educated me on what could happen if it wasnt replaced. He replaced tensioner pulley and belt.

The guy was awesome and honest. He will tell you what is wrong, ways to fix it, and tips. He was early to the app interment and did a really good job. I will use him again in the future. Oh, and the parts they use are new, higher quality. Can't go wrong with that. this is so much better than driver to a mechanic shop.

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.
