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.
3.0L Engine-Except SHO ALTERNATOR BELT WITHOUT AUTOMATIC TENSIONER
Loosen the adjusting arm and pivot bolts.
Turn the alternator belt adjusting screw counterclockwise until the old belt can be removed.
Remove the belt.
Install the new belt over the pulleys. Check that all the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys.
Adjust the belt tension, then tighten the adjusting arm and pivot bolts.
3.0L SHO Engine ALTERNATOR BELT
See Figure 2
Loosen the nut in the center of the idler pulley.
Loosen the idler adjusting screw until the old belt can be removed, then remove the belt.
Install the new belt over the pulleys in proper contact with the pulleys.
Adjust the new belt to specifications as follows: Turn the idler pulley nut to the right to tighten the belt to a specification of 220-265 lbs. (980-1180 N). Torque the idler pulley nut to 25-37 ft. lbs. (34-50 Nm).
POWER STEERING AND AIR CONDITIONING BELT
See Figure 2
Remove the alternator belt.
Loosen the nut on the tensioner pulley.
Turn the belt adjusting screw on the tensioner counterclockwise until the belt can be removed, then remove the belt.
Position the new belt over the proper pulleys, making sure the V-grooves are properly seated.
Install the alternator belt.
Adjust the power steering and air conditioning belt to a specification of 154-198 lbs. (690-980 N) with a belt tension gauge.
Adjust the alternator belt.
3.0L Engine (Except SHO) and 3.8L Engine VEHICLES THROUGH 1993 WITH AUTOMATIC TENSIONER
See Figures 4 and 5
Insert a 1 / 2 in. breaker bar into the square hole in the tensioner.
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.
Rotate the tensioner clockwise and remove the belt.
Fig. Fig. 5: 3.8L belt schematic-1993 shown
Install the drive belt over all the pulleys, except for the alternator pulley on the 3.0L engine for vehicles through 1992, or the idler pulley for 1993 3.0L vehicles.
Rotate tensioner counterclockwise and install the belt over the alternator pulley. Make sure that all the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys.
On the 3.0L engine, install the alternator belt for vehicles through 1992.
For 1993 3.0L vehicles, install the drive belt over the idler pulley.
Install a breaker bar in the 1?2 in. square hole in the automatic tensioner arm.
Rotate the tensioner away from the belt with the breaker bar.
Lift the old belt over the alternator pulley flange and remove it. To install:
Position the new belt over all the pulleys, except the alternator pulley, rotate the tensioner as described above and install the belt on the alternator pulley. Refer to the belt routing illustration on the sticker located at the front of the engine compartment. Ensure that all the V-grooves and all the ribs on the belt properly contact the grooves on the pulleys.
Rotate the tensioner toward the belt and remove the breaker bar.
Fig. 1: Make sure the belt makes proper contact with the pulley grooves
Fig. 2: Accessory drive belt routing - 4.6L engine
Insert a 1/2 inch flex handle in the square hole in the tensioner. The tensioner has a square hole cast into the rear of the tensioner body directly behind the pulley. Rotate the tensioner clockwise and remove the belt from the pulleys.
As an alternate method, a 16mm socket can be placed on the tensioner pulley bolt and rotated clockwise to remove the belt.
Following the schematic on the decal under the hood, loop the drive belt over all the pulleys except the alternator pulley.
With the belt installed properly on all except the alternator pulley, rotate the tensioner as described above and install the belt on the alternator pulley. Ensure that all the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys.
Do not allow the drive belt tensioner to snap back as damage to the drive belt tensioner or personal injury could result.
Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise with a breaker bar installed in the 3/8 inch square hole in the drive belt tensioner.
Lift the drive belt over the idler pulley flange and remove the drive belt.
Following the schematic on the decal under the hood, position the belt over the pulleys, except the idler pulley.
Rotate the tensioner as described above and install the belt on the idler. Ensure that all the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys.
yes it is the serpentine belt and there is only one and you need to make sure it is on properly and that it is on the idle tensioner pully andd you have to loosen the tensioner to put the belt on and tighten it to tighten the belt look for a belt schematic on the engine compartment area of your car near the front or sodes on the upper outer area where the hood comes opver the comparment
Fig. Timing belt tensioner index marks-Ford 2.0L (VIN 3) engines
Always replace the timing belt after loosening or removing it.
Install the timing belt.
Engage the timing belt tensioner tab into the timing cover back plate.
Adjust the timing belt tensioner until the index marks are aligned. Tighten the tensioner bolt to 17-20 ft. lbs. (22-28 Nm).
Remove the camshaft alignment tool and the crankshaft TDC peg.
Install or connect the following:
