Automotive Tips from Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Plainfield: Serpentine Belt Tensioner
Posted in Serpentine Belt on February 11, 2018
The serpentine belt tensioner applies pressure to the serpentine belt, maintaining optimal tension to drive the accessories like the alternator and A/C compressor. At Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Plainfield we know that the service life of the belt tensioner is the same as the belt itself, so they should always be replaced together. A worn tensioner prevents the accessories from spinning properly, leading to premature wear and noise for Plainfield drivers.
Your vehicle manufacturer has a recommended mileage interval for serpentine belt replacement. A complete accessory drive system service replaces the serpentine belt, the belt tensioner and any idler pulleys your car might have. Your friendly and professional Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Plainfield service advisor can inspect your system and let you know if it’s time for a replacement.
