SOURCE: timing belt tensioner
On the Rio 2002, the tensionner is only used to apply pressure to the timing belt (installation) and cannot be adjusted. Once install the tensionner is "auto adjust" using a spring. If you need to adjust it,may be it time to change the timing belt KIT. Around 60,000 M.

SOURCE: crank no start
Remove the plugs and check you are getting compressions to the cylinders first, preferably with a compression guage, but you could use a finger, possibly this is the problem.
Suspect either bent valves or your valve timing is out?
Good Luck !

its possible that a pulley replacement is needed but i would first reccomend buying a lubricating spray from your local hardware store and applying it to your squeeling belt if the noise stops then you may just need to tighten or replace the belt. in addition an overtightend belt can cause undesired stress on the pulleys.
