How can you tell if it's going bad??? I see the 3 lines on the tensioner and the arrow is on the middle one. I guess that's good???

Thanks.

If it's bad, it'll either be siezed up and won't move when you try to move it, or it'll be loose and move too easily, thus not holding enough tension on the belt, or the pulley bearing will wear out, and eventually the pulley will sieze up or break off. You'll usually hear noise before that happens.
