When your Saturn Astra left the factory, it was destined for a person with discerning taste who values trustworthy transportation in their automobile. It's not all the time that you find yourself in need of a replacement Timing Belt Tensioner for your vehicle. The vehicle in your driveway symbolizes the best in class compared to all the other vehicles in today's marketplace. Make no mistake, you didn't buy your Astra unless you knew that you wanted horsepower and unique styling both impeccably combined into one vehicle.
Maintaining the life of the engine and all parts of your Saturn Astra means you need precise engine timing. The timing belt tensioner keeps the timing belt firmly attached to the crank and cam pulleys so it doesn't hop off or skip any time. Your Saturn Astra timing belt tensioner looks like any other tensioner pulley, it will under the timing cover and bolted to the block, and it includes some mechanism (sprung or hydraulic) that pushes against the belt slightly as it rotates in order to keep it tight.
Don't let a broken Timing Belt Tensioner spell the end of your car, truck, or SUV, and don't risk lowering its resale value by using anything but the highest quality replacement parts.
