Automotive Tips from The Muffler Doctor: Serpentine Belt Tensioner

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 The Muffler Doctor 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 KANSAS CITY 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 The Muffler Doctor service advisor can inspect your system and let you know if it’s time for a replacement.Give us a call.The Muffler Doctor7915 TROOST AVEKANSAS CITY, MO 64131816-444-7100http://www.mdautorepairkc.com

Automotive Tips from The Muffler Doctor: Serpentine Belt Overview

The technicians at The Muffler Doctor know your serpentine belt drives important engine accessories like your alternator, air conditioning compressor, and power steering. In some cars it may also power the power brakes or water pump. The serpentine belt is powered by the engine and winds around pulleys and the accessories. Some cars in KANSAS CITY have two serpentine belts. The serpentine belt, the belt tensioner (which maintains the appropriate tension on the belt) and the idler pulleys are together known as the accessory drive system.Now your serpentine belt and the belt tensioner will just wear out over time – that’s why your vehicle manufacturer has a scheduled belt replacement interval. The team at The Muffler Doctor in KANSAS CITY can inspect your serpentine belt for wear and get it replaced if it’s time.Give us a call.The Muffler Doctor7915 TROOST AVEKANSAS CITY, MO 64131816-444-7100http://www.md ... read more
