Fast and friendly
First experience with mechanic and your mechanic service very positive. Mechanic was on time, professional, and knowledgeable about the work he was performing. Mechanic performed repair with what looked like relative ease and in a timely manner. Offered option to opt out of parts installation not necessary to reduce the price of repair which you don't normally get by taking your car to a shop..

Edgar had an emergency and was very late to my appointment, but still showed up and worked late into the evening to finish all the scheduled maintenance for my truck. Judging from his professionalism and attention to detail, I'm guessing his tardiness is not a regular occurrence and that it must have been a serious emergency. At the end of the day, I've been running my Ranger up and down the Oakland Hills with various furniture all weekend-- something I would have been pretty nervous about before Edgar tuned everything up.

Reasonable and convenient service. Very knowledgeable and professional mechanic who seems passionate about what he does. I thought I needed to replace my alternator, but Dwaine explained that the alternator was in good condition and only the tensioner system and the belt needed to be replaced. Thankful to have an honest mechanic servicing my car.

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.
