Check Vehicle Fit

Dayco No Slack Automatic Belt Tensioners are specifically built to outperform and outlast competitive OE parts. The heavy duty cast aluminum spring case resists cracking and fatigue. Each component is built to resist rust, endure the toughest of conditions while promoting quieter performance and longer life.

Product Features:
  • Manufactured with a specially coated patented flat wire spring to allow the internal tension to be concentric, thus providing a more even degree of constant tension
  • The patented Deflected Arm Plate dampens arm movement, prolonging the life of the tensioner by limiting the amount of rotational movement
  • Contains a metallic locator pin built to withstand extreme drive demands and properly locate the tensioner for installation
  • This tensioner includes the required hardware for proper installation

                  Comments about CARQUEST by Dayco Belt Tensioner:

                  It's really easy to install as long as you rent the specialty tool. If not, you'll end up smashing your fingers. There's no way of installing it the wrong way because it comes with a prong attatched. You have to line it up with the machined hole on the block before you're able to insert the bolt and start tightening. It's a tight space, so do as much by hand before using a tool. The specialty tool is really just an extra long extension arm which is necessary for easy manipulation of the tensioner in order to route the belt around it correctly. It's just as good as any really high priced tensioner. I believe it even comes with a one year warranty as well. Absolutely recommended.

                        Hello Russ, happy to help you with your question. The back of the pulley where the ratchet would go to remove and install the belt is going to be a 3/8 size drive ratchet.

                      • A:

                        Replace tensioner when you replace serpentine belt (approx every 60,000 miles)

                        If the belt is riding off the tensioner pulley, check for proper install of tensioner arm and then all other pulleys along belt route. There is a pulley out of alignment somewhere.

                    • Q:

                      Is there any kind of gasket that goes on it and if it is bad can coolant leak behind it

                        A:

                        This has nothing to do with the coolant system. If there is a leak behind it then either it is coming from nearby or, although highly unlikely depending the circumstances, you have a cracked block.

                        You should be able to replace it yourself as long as you have some sort of automatic knowledge.

                        You can use a belt change tool. Or if you have room then you can use a wrench or rachet and socket.
