2000 ranger tensioner pulley
My sons 2000 ranger started acting up this morning. he said when he tried to move forward it would have a bad vibration. I followed him as he went to school. But I could not see the wheels wobbling as if the lug nuts had come loose. I say this because just a couple of weeks ago we hadd to replace the brakes all the way around. someone had suggested to me the have a friend that had had issues with the tensioner pulley going out. Could a bad tensioner cause the engine to run rough and cause vibration? Because of the components not working properly? He said when he stopped at school it smelt a little like burning rubber (maybe the serpentine belt?). I'll check after I get off of work.
