This is a pretty tough timing belt job to do if you have never done one before. There is also a kit of tools that are essential to getting the timing right on this engine. The cams are numbered 1-2-3-4 from left to right if you are facing the cam sprockets. If the tensioner was broken and the engine came out of time you are probably looking at at least a few bent valves. Could be time well spent to perform a leakdown test before you spend too much time on installing a timing belt.

Rotate the engine so that No. 1 cylinder is at TDC on the
compression stroke. Check that the timing marks are aligned on the
camshaft and crankshaft pulleys. An access plug is provided in the cam
belt cover so that the camshaft timing can be checked without removal
of the cover or any other parts. Set the crankshaft to TDC by aligning
the timing mark on the crank pulley with the TDC mark on the belt
cover. Look through the access hole in the belt cover to make sure that
the timing mark on the cam drive sprocket is lined up with the pointer
on the inner belt cover.
The spring cannot be used to set belt tension; a wrench must be used on the tensioner assembly.

Remove the two bolts, the timing chain tensioner and tensioner arm.
NOTE: LH shown; RH similar.
Remove the bolts and the timing chain guides.
CAUTION: Do not compress the ratchet assembly. This will damage the ratchet assembly.
Compress the tensioner plunger, using an edge of a vise.
If the copper links are not visible, mark two links on one end and one link on the other end, and use as timing marks.
If removed, install LH and RH crankshaft sprockets.
Position the tensioner arms and tensioners, and install the bolts.
