Default Re: Tensioner rattle is back -- even with new AC Delco tensioner and belt!

I'm thinking a valid option for people with this problem is to get the old tensioner design from a 95 or earlier... They are metal, and don't really appear to ever break. My friend installed one on his 98 (from a 94 or 95) and its been working great for some time now. I have a plastic aftermarket one and it makes noise also. (OEM belt)

I wish these cars had mechanical tensioners like my Nissan

All gone, but not forgotten.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
