The spring in the tensioner is probably broken and needs to be replaced.

How do i tighten the timing belt tension on a 1999 dodge stratus


The belt tensioner is not adjustable. To loosen a tensioner you would swivel the belt tensioner away from the belt with a long flex wrench or ratchet and to tighten the belt you would let the spring in the tensioner move the swivel back into the tight position. An internal spring tightens the tensioner pulley against the belt. You will need to get a smaller belt or replace the tensioner if the belt is "too loose" after you swivel it back into the tight position against the belt and release pressure.

Tried to tighten belt but became loose! Need Help!


There should be a tensioner pulley on your vehicle that makes the belt tight. If the belt is not tight then either your tensioner is bad or your belt is worn to thin. There should be a mark on the tensioner that shows how far the belt can wear before you need to replace. If it is not below the mark yet then your tensioner needs to be replaced.

MY BELTS SNAPPED AND BENT PULLEY IS IT TENSIONER OR PULLEY NEEDS REPLACING


Kind of a vague question here. I am assuming you are speaking of the pulley that is attached to the tensioner is bent. Either way I would suggest in replacing the tensioner. They have just he pulley you can take off your tensioner and rebuild it, but it is easier for the cost, and as a point of preventive maintnace to replace the entire tensioner, for the entire tensioner either 4 cyl or 6 is around 96$

How do you make the tensioner release to tighten the timing belt?


The belt tensioner keeps the belt tight inside each accessory pulley while the engine is running. The tensioner is made up of a spring-loaded arm. If the spring inside of the tensioner becomes loose then it will not be able to hold the belt properly.And belt will also get loose. The belt tensioner is on the engine underneath the alternator. Its fitted by bolt.To loose the belt you will need drive socket and breaker bar .Turn the breaker bar counterclockwise to release tension from the belt.Remove the mounting bolt at the top center of the tensioner arm.The tensioner arm is loose and will easily come out.If you in-case are to replace the tensioner then place the new tensioner in same place and tighten the bolt which you removed.Before removing or moving the belt check the position of the belt passing from each pulley.so that when you fit the parts there is no problem in fitting the parts.
After its done.Start the engine and see that belt and tensioner runs freely and belt moving from each pulley smoothly.
------------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

My belt is still loose after i changed out the


You will need an alternative wrench. The alternator wrench will grab the alternator for you and allow you to move the alternator to make the belt extremely tight. However, depending on which engine you have, you may have a serpentine belt which is tightened automatically with an tension wheel. If this is the case you have the wrong size belt and need to obtain the correct, smaller belt.

Serpentine belt tensioner will not tighten


If the tensioner will not keep the belt tight then the tensioner is bad and will need to be replaced. The spring on the inside will loose it's tension over time.
