Hi,
It sounds like you have lost a bit of tension on this tensioner, the best way around it with out replacing the tensioner is to adjust up the slack by adjusting the generator/alternator.
If this still doesn't bring the tension up, then you will need to replace the tensioner.
Let me know if you need more help.
Thanks
Jason

    These should help











    As you can tell there are 2 different engine set-ups but you should be able to find the one your engine is.

Adjust belt tension


Ypur Ford has a self adjusting (non-adjustable) belt tensioner. If the belt is from 2008, you wouldn't go wrong replacing it. However, if it is really loose, either your tensioner spring has crapped out or the belt has been routed incorrectly. A diagram under your hood should show the proper routing of the belt. Good luck.

How do i adjust the tension belt on the alternator


You don't adjust the tension. The tensioner on that serpentine belt is spring loaded and never needs adjustment.
On a 2001 with normal miles (~125k), you should be on your second tensioner pulley and your third serpentine belt by now.

Where is the serpentine belt adjustment on a 96 cavalier 2.2 litre


Hello ycharger.
The cavalier uses a spring tensioner and is not adjustable.
If your belt is loose it is most likely that the tensioner has seized or the spring has broken and not keeping the belt tight.
It will require the replacement of the tensioner as an assembly.

Not a real easy one to do though.
Here is the guide from the manual.

  1. Disconnect negative battery cable and remove the coolant reservoir.
  2. Remove serpentine belt.
  3. Remove two generator bolts.
  4. Remove power steering pump and position aside.
  5. Remove tensioner bolts and tensioner.
  6. Reverse procedure to install, Torquing tensioner bolts to 37 ft. lbs.
There you are, I hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

2000 Lincoln How do you adjust the tension on the motor serpintine belt ?


You don't...I mean you can't adjust the serpentine belt because there is automatic self tensioner which loaded by a very high compression spring. Now, there should be a square hole on the tensioner which is a 1/2 inch. You simply put a half inch breaker bar in the square hole to gain leverage in order to change your belt. Hopefully this helps

How can one tell if a tensioner is bad on a 1998 dodge ram 1500? Also is there a such thing as tightening a belt with these tensioners


The tensioner is a spring loaded unit that is supposed to provide the proper tension on the belt with out adjustments. Ususally if a tensioner goes bad it is not providing presure on the serpentine belt (loose belt, squeel, or squeek) or it has a bad bearing in the tensioner pulley (noisy, siezed). The tensioners are sold as an assembly in either case. If the tensioner went bad it is a good idea to replace the serpentine belt at the same time.
