What is a tension pulley?

A tension pulley, also known as an idler pulley, is a vital component in a vehicle's engine system. It is responsible for maintaining proper tension on the serpentine belt, which drives various engine accessories such as the alternator, power steering pump, and air conditioning compressor. The tension pulley ensures the belt remains in contact with all the pulleys, preventing slippage and ensuring smooth operation of the engine.
