This procedure involves correcting the tension on the power steering accessory and A/C compressor drive belt.
1. Loosen the power steering pump locking bolts A and B and pivot bolt C(Illustration 1 and 2 ) to allow adjustment of belt tension.
2. Using a 1/2" breaker bar, adjust belt tension by applying torque to the square hole "D" on the power steering pivot bracket. Adjust the tension as follows:
Belt tension with no belt replacement: A. Using the Belt Tension Gauge Special Tool Kit C-4162, adjust the belt tension to 100 lb.
B. Tighten in order, first tighten the locking bolt A to 27 Nm (20 ft. Ibs) then, bolt B to27Nm (20 ft. Ibs). Finally tighten the pivot bolt C to 54 Nm (40 ft. Ibs).
Belt tension with belt replacement:
A. Using the Belt Tension Gauge Special Tool Kit C-4162, adjust the belt tension to 135 lb.
B. Tighten in order, first tighten the locking bolt A to 27 Nm (20 ft. Ibs) then, bolt B to 27Nm (20 ft. Ibs). Finally tighten the pivot bolt C to 54 Nm (40 ft. Ibs).
C. Start the engine and allow the vehicle to idle for 15 minutes to allow the belt to seat.
D. Repeat the belt tensioning procedure, set belt tension to 135 lb.

SOURCE: How to adjust valves on
3.0l engine?non adjustable..if noisy,have seen faulty lifters do this..has oil been changed regularly?if so,if you isolate noise to front or rear of engine you remove valve cover and push down and pull up on each rocker arm..if you find movement up and down..replace these and change oil and filter..3.3/3.8 engines..non adjustable also..if noisy,you may a oil supply problem to rear bank of engine..a camshaft bearing turns in block cutting off oil supply

If the lifters [automotive repair industry term] or hydraulic lash adjusters [actual terminology], which are ment to maintain the correct distance between the valve train components is bleeding off oil within the adjuster, it must be replaced. The only thing that can be done is to replace them. I would suggest replaceing all 24 [dual overhead cam engine type], if you are in there doing that, you may as well replace the valve stem seals as well... and believe me, its alot of work, ive done it..
