on the 92 3.0 sohc engines,the tensioner for the alt etc is a bolt behind the smallest pulley that has that's driven by it(meaning not an alternator,Power Steering pump etc...some people are newbs)youll need a 4-6 inch extension to reach it don't remember the socket,might have been a 12mm or 14mm but you losten the pulley itself a few turns first,not all the way off but enough to let the tension bolt travel...torque to desired or specified torque..i still don't know the torque settings for the alt belt as i did a steal with this engine and have heard mixed applications on stealth forums but the small belt is suppose to be quite tight and when its as tight as you think it should be,tighten it 2-4 times more,its suppose to be really tighter than youd expect,idid alot of digging for that one lol...but i have heard 141lbs ft for the other,but that's strictly heresay from unreliable sources....the other tensioner bolt is right above the other pulleys toward the ac compressor(lower pulleys)your gonna need to do alot more if your doing more than tension here,depending on car,y stealth needed a belt so i had to jack it up take the driver tire and well off and than take the pulley off etc..and install..P.I.T.A..but yeah if not youll know...that's all././.

Yes, there is a diagram for a 1995 Dodge Spirit Serpentine Belt Diagram. It is found in the maintenance manual to the car.
Done automatically by belt tensioner
Serpentine belts have a pulley that is spring loaded. Tension is set automatically when the belt is installed.
You dont adjust the tension on a serpentine belt, Dodge uses a spring loaded tensioner located just below the alternator, If your belt is loose it is either worn, the wrong size belt or your tensioner has frozen and not moving. If it is a brand new belt I would suggest making sure the correct one was given to you from the auto parts store. If the belt has been on the vehicle for an extended period of time I would suggest replacing it.
You don't. If it has stretched too much for the tensioner pulley to handle, you need a new belt. Or, if the tensioner pulley is not applying correct tension, the tensioner pulley must be replaced.
You don't. The pulley is pretensioned by the manufacturer. If the belt tension is incorrect, the pulley must be replaced.
You don't. The serpentine belt tension is automatically maintained by the tensioner pulley, which is an idler pulley located on the passenger side of the system and looks like it doesn't drive anything. If the belt tension is incorrect, the tensioner pulley must be replaced. If the question meant 'how to release tension from the belt' (for removal, etc.), this is done by applying the correct size socket wrench to the tensioner pulley's center nut and rocking the pulley away from the belt.
The belt tensioner is self-adjusting.
You cannot adjust the belt tension on a 2000 dodge grand caravan. This vehicle is equipped with an automatic tensioner. If tensioner is frozen or will not hold the belt tight, it must be replaced.
A serpentine belt on an engine is held in place by a pulley that maintains the proper tension on the belt. This pulley can be pulled up to release the tension on the belt. Do not pull the pulley out, but gently up or you'll risk damaging it.
what is the diagram of a serpentine belt for a dodge shadow 1994
The belt tensioner is rotated clock wise with a 15 mm wrench or belt tool.
Auto zone has a repair guide on their website which shows the diagram
the idler pully makes the tension. to remove belt you use a wrench push tensioner in a direction that would loosen the belt as if you were trying to tighten or loosen the bolt holding the pulley on. carefull high tension.
Dodge has a repair kit for that problem on a 1996-2000 Check all puleys for alignment. Check belt shield. Check for correct tension.
It has 2 serpentine belts.
Dodge Spirit was created in 1989.
** THIS IS FOR TIMING BELT ** There is nothing for us as users to adjust. Tension is done by the auto tensioner. The timing belt spins the cams, and water pump on these cars. Maitanance scheduals of 60k and 120k are required. Change out water pump, belt, and tensioner. / / / / / / / / I'm wrong!! Oops! The serpentine belt that runs the alternator, AC, Power steer. To adjust the tension on this belt. There is an adjustment hex head screw. Located on the idler pulley. Turn clockwise to raise idler, tightens belt tension.

There is a Tensioner Pulley that you have adjust in order to tighten the belt. There is another hex bolt that can be screwed in or out depending on how you want to tighten or losen the belts. Adjust it until prefered tension is reached.
