Question about 1993 Ford Taurus
Does a 1993 Ford Taurus have a spring-loaded tensioner or does it just have the idler pulley that you unloosen to get the belt off

There is no spring tensioner on some of the 3.0 engines. See instructions below. I will paste a pic on the version that DOES have a tensioner at the bottom of this post. Fig. Fig. 5: 3.8L belt schematic-1993 shown
3.0L Engine-Except SHO
ALTERNATOR BELT WITHOUT AUTOMATIC TENSIONER
3.0L SHO Engine
See Figure 2
POWER STEERING AND AIR CONDITIONING BELT
See Figure 2
VEHICLES THROUGH 1993 WITH AUTOMATIC TENSIONER
See Figures 4 and 5
On the 3.8L engine, the tensioner has a1/2in. square hole cast into the rear of the tension arm directly behind the pulley. On the 3.0L engine, the1/2in. square hole is cast into the spring housing on the front of the tensioner.

was this the bolt in center of the tensioner pulley? if so you will need to remove and replace the tensioner assembly, if not which bolt did you break?
