Always go with the honda service tech for they are trained in ut specific car models.. they both can be right though... the noise may be from ur auto tensionor and or ur a/c compressor..those models have problems with the a/c clutch pulley bold breaking off and have problems with the a/c compressors blowing up

Can i bypass the ac compressor with a new tensioner and belt but leave the ac compressor in place or will it be in the way ?

If your willing to go through the trouble of adding another tensioner or finding a different belt size why not try removing the electro-magnetic clutch that engages the A/C compressor, i know there is a tool designed for easily doing this... alternatively, if noise made by the compressor pulley is your issue you can service the pulley without replacing the A/C compressor... I had similar issues with my vehicle and didnt want to sink the money into a new compressor or have to pay to have my A/C recharged. I got my information from they have an expert help section where you can communicate one on one with a professional. they sent me a detailed tutorial with photos and a video, it even included multiple methods of accomplishing my goal. I had no problem with there help and actually spent ZERO dollars. Auto Absolute Home Page

Where is the tensioner adjustment for the serpentine drive belt for the alternator?

service data
the op guide does skip belts. (sadly)
This suzuki does have a FSM (factor service manual)
and is also on line (vitural) at alldata dot com or Mitchels.
i can log in to my pub. library, and see e-sources. and see same.
the 2.0L has a center belt "tensioner" between ALT and P/S
and lower.
my online page states, its Autoadjusting.

me, i just try to move it (flex) it with a stick
if I cant move them, they are fixed mech.
if i can flex them they are AUTO.
no magic here, I just man handle it.

Serpentine come in 2 types. (spring type, and pure manual)

My service engine soon lght is on in my 2004 chevy trailblazer LT. i went to take the care through marta this morning so i can renew my tags for my car. the man told me that the trouble sensors are P0014...

The P0014 code refers to one of your camshaft position sensors being out of time with the other. Does not mean its bad but it could be. The P0128 code refers to your engine running cooler than it should. Your coolant thermostat may be stuck open not letting the engine warm up to it's proper temp. Now you did not say which engine you have in the TrailBlazer. There are 2 different engine used in the year model. Please repost with that info.

How do i find out how the vacum lines on my prelude should go

You can get a vacuum line diagram from any "Honda Dealer" service center, and they will usually print them for you for free. Most auto service centers in general, will have the same information available as well. Your local auto parts stores should sell "Haynes" manuals that contain vacuum diagrams.

My 1997 Honda Civic squeaks terribly when I turn the AC on. What's the problem?

sounds as if the belt is slipping. Check to see if a/c compressor is locked up. With the engine not running you should be able to turn the center of the a/c compressor clutch freely. If not it is locked up. If turns freely check the belt may just be a loose belt..

Having trouble finding the tensioner for the ac belt any ideas

You didn't say if you were trying to locate it to replace the serpentine belt or the tensioner itself.

The tensioner is on the left side of the engine as you face it from the front. There should be a diagram under the hood on a sticker showing the belt routing. A 3/8" square drive is required to release the tension. There is a special tool for this that you may be able to borrow (rent) from your local auto parts store.
