See if this part fits a specific vehicle.

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
  • Contains a metallic locator pin built to withstand extreme drive demands and properly locate the tensioner for installation
  • The patented Deflected Arm Plate dampens arm movement, prolonging the life of the tensioner by limiting the amount of rotational movement
  • This tensioner includes the required hardware for proper installation

Not a top quality part

I only recommend this part for those who cannot possibly afford a higher quality part, or who needs it right now. Dayco makes good rubber products and should have continued in that market. The original tensioner lasted 130k miles. The first replacement squealed almost as bad as the one it replaced. I swapped it under warrantee with less than 100 miles on it. The second replacement spring is slightly bound in the housing. It chirps on cold start until the engine is warm.

Comments about CARQUEST by Dayco Belt Tensioner:

Replaced the belt on my 3.0L Ranger.
Immediately after starting, a chirp sound happened which got worse over time.
Changed original tensioner (lasted 175K miles)with this unit, chirp immediately went away.
IIRC, there were a few different size belts for this engine, may contribute to problems if the wrong size is used.

      Comments about CARQUEST by Dayco Belt Tensioner:

      Purchased this for a 2006 Taurus that had a new belt, but still squeaked. The original tensioner spring apparantly was worn as this fixed it. Ford used several different types of mounting bolt and this single part covers all of them, which is a nice touch. Read the instructions that come with this part regarding the different style mounting bolts and the bag of bolts that come with the new tensioner!

            • Q:

              I replaced the part about 4 months ago and this past week the mounting pin broke off. The only thing I could think of is when I replaced it the bolt that it came with was about 1/2 an inch to long so I cut it down. What should I do when I put the new one in?

                A:

                To get the proper torque specifications, it is best to refer to a repair manual for that certain vehicle such as Haynes repair manuals which can be purchased at your local Advance Auto Parts store.
