No Belt=It has a Timing Chain.=
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
Yes every car has a timing belt or chain.The 2003 Cavalier has a timing belt
Disconnect battery a battery terminal Losen the Alternator bolt which is located on the up/down bracket. Once losen, you can adjust the tightness/slackness of the belt. Hope this helps, james
It doesn't have a timing belt.
ask your mom how she adjust her belt then you'll know
The Alternator is mounted solidly to the engine. It does not adjust. You have to use a wrench to pry back the Serpentine Belt Tensioner ,, remove the belt ,, and then remove all of the bolts that hold the Alternator on.
The belt tensioner for a 94 Cavalier is mounted on the front of the engine. The tensioner is spring loaded on an arm to keep the belt tight.
I think that after you put on the timing belt alighned properly,that your distrib. makes up the diff. when you adjust it. Jim
usually serpentine belts get their tension(tightness) from the belt tensioner
u do not adjust belt tensioner if belt is loose, u need to replace belt as tensioner works automatically
The water pump is the tensioner for the timing belt. if you need to adjust it, replace it.
No belt. It has a chain.
It has a timing chain, not a belt. -------- yes
Never as the 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier does not have a belt, it has a chain that should last the life of the engine.
all engines in 2002 cavalier have timing chains.gmjim I just purchased a 2002 Cavalier with a DOHC engine. I think that it owuld have a belt instead of a chain.
You do not There is an idler that auto tightens the belt to the correct tightness. If the spring is busted replace this.
The alternator is rotated on it's pivot to adjust belt tension.
replace the belt or adjust it
