Tensioners are vital components in any belt or chain drive timing system. They apply tension on belts/chains to ensure balance shaft/valve timing is maintained. A faulty timing belt/chain tensioner can allow the belt/chain to jump one or more sprocket teeth resulting in poor engine performance or an engine that won’t start, and severe damage on some engines from valve-to-piston contact. A weak balance shaft belt/chain tensioner can allow balance shaft timing to go astray resulting in severe vibration.
