Question about 1999 Chevrolet Tracker
Ok, I see the diagram and everything appears to be right however the belt is getting hot.... does it need a lubricant, soap, wd40???
Belt is getting hot, because it might be loose or one of the components (AC, water pump, alternator etc) has trouble with rotation (getting stuck). In most common case it is alternator.
If you are handy with that you need to remove the belt and rotate the alternator, water pump, ac pulleys and see which one has problem with rotation. Also you can check for free at Autozone if alternator giving enough charge.
Libricants are prohibited to use, belt will be slippering and wont rotate the pulleys for AC, water pump, alternator.
For tension serpentine belt can be checked by twisting it, it should not twist more then 90 degree, or by pushing, no more the 1/4 inch freedom then you push it
