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././.

How do you adjust the tension of the serpentine belt on a 1999 Dodge Durango?

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.

How do you adjust the tension on a serpentine belt on a dodge Dakota 2002?

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.
