Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla
I have 2006 Corolla that needs a replacement of belt tensioner because it leaks (?) according to Toyota service center. The symptom is a screeching noise whenever I start the engine and goes away sometime later when I'm driving.
My common knowledge of belt tensioner mechanism is they only operated by adjusting screw/nut. Is there really a mechanism that support the belt tensioner which might leak and causes tension to loose?
In my 37 years of working on cars, I never, ever heard of a belt tensioner leaking, All there is inside is a heavy duty spring, and after awhile they become weak, causing the belt to squeel. There is no adjustment on them, just replacement.
