Automatic tensioner-no provision for adjustment.

There is a belt tensioner that is spring loaded and it adjusts the tightness of the serp belt. The tensioner is self adjusting as the serp belt stretches out from use. You cannot adjust the belt tension yourself. If your serp belt is showing signs of cracking on the underside then you should replace it. If you suspect the belt tensioner is not putting enough tension on your serp belt then it should be replaced. I had a 1991 Corsica with the same motor and I had a belt tensioner break. This caused my serp belt to come off.

You dont! The belt is self adjusting with the belt tensioner. Check the tensioner for failure or damage if your belt is loose good luck

No you can not. If belt is loose, are won't fit then you have the wrong belt. The belt tensioner is spring loaded and that is what tightens the belt.

There is an adjuster on the power steering pump. One cannot adjust it as it has an automatic tensioner if the belt is squeaking it is time to replace belt/tensioner or both
