One side of the timing cover can be pulled off to look at the belt. If you pull off the cover on the driver's side (four 10mm bolts), you'll be able to see if the belt is tight, slack, or broken. Good luck!

Crankshaft turns but timing belt does not

You will need to have the timing belt replaced. Depending on which engine you have, you will likely need a new belt tensioner as well. There was update to these as they failed frequently and caused the belt to come off. I am pretty sure this engine does not bend valves so you should be able to repair the belt problem and be good to go.

If timing belt was replace due ti timing belt failure, more then likely it has piston to valve damage, this engine is an interference engine, to find out for sure, need to do a cylinder compression test, if any cylinder with zero, bent valves.

My free lander engine belt not working proper ti's bracking.3 time replac.

Make sure all of the pulleys that the belt travels around turn freely. Often times its the drive belt tensioner that has seized, causing the belt to melt and brake.

2002 Intrepid: need to replace the water pump...

In the 2.7L V6, the water pump is driven by the timing chain. I'm pretty sure that in the 3.2/3.5L V6, it's driven by the timing belt. In both cases, it's a lot of work to get to, as you have to remove everything on the top (intake plenum, valve covers) and front (belts, pulleys, idlers, p/s pump, and timing cover) of the engine. Then, after removing and replacing the water pump and timing chain/belt, you have to make sure that the valve timing is exactly right, and reset the chain tensioner on the 2.7L.

A lot of work. Unless you're very comfortable with working on engines, leave it to a professional. You'll save yourself a headache (not to mention some busted knuckles). ;-)

How do you tighten the main belt that connects to altonater water pump power steering ect.

The job of maintaining belt tension falls on the Belt Tensioner. It's time to replace it. They're pretty reasonable in the $25-$35 range.

Timing belt broke on my 1992 Honda Accord LX

You just have to try it. The best thing to do is try adjusting the valves. The settings are under the hood. They valves should be pretty close to what the clearances should be. If any are WAY LOOSE you may have a bent valve. If they seem OK, replace the belt. Be sure to replace the balancer belt also.

Not sure if it is the belt or the power steering pump. Making noise. Sprayed WD40 on it when it was running and it goes away for abour 30 seconds.

You probably need a new belt, don't buy a cheap belt. I have used cheap before and had noise right away. Ask for a Gates belt. When you sprayed the wd40 it lubed the old belt temporarily so the noise went away. Better to replace all or them at the same time. I am pretty sure the nissan has 2-3 belts.
