Eric the Car Guy is an ASE-certified Master Technician based in Cincinnati,
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.
