The tensioner from an SRT4 won't work? Of course not, why would it.. they start at $50 on RockAuto.

Don't know this store, but $274 here http://performancedodge.stores.yahoo.ne ... ebete.html

yeah make sure that its not just the pulley they are selling for $100 but the whole entire panel with the tensioner..

if you can confirm 100% definitely let me know.. and find out about a return policy in case they are actually incorrect about the part

I did email a junkyard to see if they could do this part, BUT a part from the junkyard just as old as mine doesnt sound like a good idea to me.

Is the part the same for 00-05? An 05 might not be so bad if I could find one.

BRR gonna send ya a message

Has my belt tensioner crapped out?

I'm thinking that the obvious answer is 'yes' but I want to confirm. On my way home this morning I lost power steering.. got home and checked, belt not moving. Belt not broken. "hmm.. ok, check it when it's light out". I had a bad feeling that it was the tensioner. Just checked it.... I can move the...

I'm not positive but I think the TCC Solenoid and the Lockup are two different parts. Back when I was researching my TCC Solenoid problem I saw people mention a $6 lockup part. The TCC solenoid does have a CEL code, so if it were going bad then you should get one. I did! As for symptoms, I dont quit...

the starter connection is indeed weird, but a normal eye ring will go on it just fine getting the plastic cover off is a PITA, i broke mine and didnt put it back on, but once its off its only a 14mm nut (or something around that size, i forget) to take the cable off. its accessible from the top but ...
