I suggest that if you are going to do any maintenance on your car that you visit the website and register the car. It doesn't cost anything and you will have access to a full online repair manual for the car. That comes in handy and is a good source for repair information. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

The serpentine belt on a 2.4L is VERY loose after alternator replacement. Can I tighten it or is the tensioner or belt dead?

I think you are on the right track, suspecting the tensioner. It should spring back after you release it. There is a pretty heavy spring inside, it may have broken.

How do I replace a timing chain in an 1997 chevy caviller

Hi there,

Generally, in "chain" driven engines, it is not neccessary to change the timing chain unless it is seriously stretched or broken (only timing/cam "belts" require interval changing).

However, if you are experiencing the symptom of chain "rattle", then I would first reccommend you change to the correct grade of engine oil, then secondly, change the chain "tensioner".
