Default Stuck tensioner pulley

Like the title says, my tensioner pulley is stuck, it froze up and seized. It squeals somthin awful except when I'm accelerating, like when it is pulling. What's wrong? Also, I took the belt off and tried to turn it by hand and it still wouldn't turn

I'm assuming it's the original tensioner to the truck? 87f-150 is right. Just swap out the tensioner for a new one. It's an easy swap, just one bolt. It can cause some serious issues if you don't get that fixed.

Gotta love that rewards card! But it is kinda sad to think about how much money you have spent over the years to get enough rewards for that.

Yeah lol. It's like when you have 5 purchases over $20 you get $20 rewards. So spend 100 get 20 back
