Improperly tensioned belts cause slippage, squealing, heat build-up and premature failure. Dayco engineers recommend careful belt tensioning. After a new belt has been installed, run engine for 3 to 5 minutes to seat belt. After seating belt, reset tension to amount recommended in the RETENSION AMOUNT column of the Belt Tension Table shown below. To watch our instructional video, click here.
