2001 Malibu Idler Pulley and Tensioner Jan 7 2011
A high pitched squeal was happening on really cold days at cold startup. It was traced to the idler tensioner assembly and wheel. The spring in the tentioner was not moving freely anymore, and the wheel had much play and was rough spinning. While the surpentine belt was already off, I figured it was time to change the idler wheel as well. It makes it much easier on the water and power steering pump, as well as the air conditioning compressor when a idler tensioner assembly is in good order. It also saves you from being stuck on the side of the road, the springs can fly apart on these assemblies when they are very worn out. Also done is a quick walk-around of the car, catching a bit of the undersides to see how the oiling is helping to keep corrosion at bay.
