Question about 1994 Oldsmobile Achieva Special Edition
Your car has a belt tensioner. There is no adjustment for belt tension. You will need to get a new tensioner and replace the belt while you are at it, just for peace of mind. Go to any reputable auto parts store, should be about $25 part. have it installed by someone with reasonable skills as this is a spring loaded part.

I believe this car has a sliding alternator for putting tension on the belt. There should a bracket above the alternator with a bolt that goes through it and the alternator, loosen this bolt first. Next there should be a pivot bolt on the bottom of the alternator which when loosened you can tilt the alternator back adding tension to the belt. When you have it tilted back far enough just tighten up the bolts without releasing the alternator til the bolts are tightened up all the way. You may need a long pry bar such as the tire wrench to add a little extra tension that you just can't get by hand tightening. Hope this helps you.
