CARQUEST by Dayco® 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
  • Dayco's patented Nylon Pivot Bushing keeps internal components in constant contact to maintain proper tensioner alignment

Snap to replace and the sealed bearings is a plus for me. New part did not have a mounting nut with it, but the old one worked just fine. New problem is that I need to replace the other pulleys to match the "quietness" of this one :-)

product was in stock in and out in no time. got home and the assembly was keeping the coil pack from seating properly. had to space the coil pack for assembly to fit properly. when i put the oil dipstick back in i accidently hit the pully with the bolt bracket on the stick. left a straight scratch line on the pully across the teeth. not very durable at all. product fits everything except its just a touch over sized so plan on spacing your coil pack for this to fit. it was installed on a 5.9 L dodge durango.

Comments about CARQUEST by Dayco Automatic Belt Tensioner:

My tensioner pulley in my 98 Dodge Dakota started making noise on the way to work one morning. When I was ready to leave, I went to Advanceautoparts.com, and ordered one online before I left work. I arrived at my local Advance Auto parts store about 15 minutes later, and they had it there waiting for me! I had a pretty good handle on what I was doing, but I still watched the tutorial video on the website. I had the old one off in just a few minutes, and the new one on even quicker! Worked like a charm and I was back on the road in less than a half an hour!

    Needed to replace the belt tensioner on my pickup truck. This part was in stock at the local store and installed in about 10 minutes using a standard socket set I carry in the truck. Cant get any easier than that

    • Q:

      I need to replace my tensioner pulley. Do I also need to replace the idler pulley at the same time? Thank you.
      Asked on 12/28/2016 by JD from Ogden, Utah

      1 answer

      • CUSTOMER CARE

        A:

        Yes, JD! If the tensioner pulley has failed (and the engine has a lot of miles on it), it is probably a good idea to replace the idler pulley at the same time. Because the shaft bearings on all the pulleys will have the same amount of wear. If they are reaching the end of their service life, replacing them now will restore the pulleys to like-new condition and reduce the risk of a breakdown because of a pulley failure.

    • Q:

      I currently have a belt tensioner that is sticking and dosen't seem to have any spring to it. When I changed the Idler Pulley and releaved the tension it just sat there and did not go back to the original location. My current tensioner is not sealed is this typical?

        A:

        With out the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer. We would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not solve or be the problem.

      • A:

        It is shot, take it off and recycle it, if it sticky, it no worky! Yes, it is sealed or supposed to be, replace your belt while you are there because running with lower tension could cause slippage and burnishing which will shorten belt life drastically.

        A:

        Replacing this pulley may help, but the squeeking may be coming from the belt itself.

        Answered on 5/24/2010 by Mike from AAP
      • A:

        it could be the pulley or just the belt. Dodge 3.9L belt tensioners are know to go bad after 110k mark.

        Answered on 6/22/2010 by strohl from pa
      • A:

        Stop wasting your money, remove the belt and spin each pulley to isolate the squeak, sounds will resonate inside of an engine compartment masking the source. if you want to cheat before you pull the belt, buy a can of silicone spray, install the long red nozzle on the can, and delicately spray each component with the engine running, when the noise goes away after the spray you have found your source. *******keep your hands away from moving parts and do not be too liberal around the belt as it will carry the silicone spray and coat the other components. if it still did not help, check the alternator first as it has sealed bearings in the back of it that silicone spray will not affect.
