Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD
The tensioner is a spring loaded unit that is supposed to provide the proper tension on the belt with out adjustments. Ususally if a tensioner goes bad it is not providing presure on the serpentine belt (loose belt, squeel, or squeek) or it has a bad bearing in the tensioner pulley (noisy, siezed). The tensioners are sold as an assembly in either case. If the tensioner went bad it is a good idea to replace the serpentine belt at the same time.
