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

I know but 15,000 miles in one year should not yield a belt too stretched to tension. I am having the opposite problem, the tensioner is hitting the stop because the correct length, slightly used belt, is too short

I have owned a bunch of serpentine belted cars and I have never had something so finicky. the whole point of a tensioner is it's supposed to be less hassle than a manually tensioned belt.

2004 Ford Taurus SEL

1976 Pontiac Firebird

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
