Hydraulic Tensioners

Hydraulic Tensioners automatically adjust the tension of the timing belt, and also provide damping by using the flow resistance of hydraulic oil.


As the demand for engines with higher power, high performance and high reliability continues to increase, so will the inclusion of Hydraulic/Automatic tensioners in vehicles.

Gates® Hydraulic Tensioners bolt on just like the original tensioner, and like the rest of the Gates® timing system range, they will perform equal to or better than the original product.

  • Available and included in Timing Component Kits (Timing Component Kits with   Hydraulic Tensioners feature an 'H' on the end of the part number e.g. TCKH199)
  • Also sold separately
  • Wide vehicle coverage
  • All parts are either OE sourced or meet/exceed OE performance standards.
