The timing belt on a 1991 Plymouth Acclaim is replaced by removing the engine accessories, removing the timing cover, and taking pressure off the idler pulley. The belt can then be slipped off the sprockets, a new belt put in place, and the tension restored.
Adjust the belt or replace it with a new one.

how do you change a timing belt on a 1998 Plymouth breeze 2.0 liter engine
The 93 Acclaim has a serpentine belt. The tensioner below the alternator is what keeps the tension. If you have not tension I would replace the belt first and then check the tensioner.
There is no timing belt. Saturn Ion's use a timing chain.

The GSR always had VTEC. Do you want to adjust your Timing, or replace the Timing Belt?
First of all is it the 2.5L 4-cyl or the 3.0L 6-cyl? A Haynes manual for any Dodge or Plymouth using your engine actually has plenty of info. I used a manual for a 1989 Dodge Caravan to change the belt on a 1995 Plymouth Acclaim 3.0L. The engines look identical. If you have the 3.0L: Quick connect fuel lines are in the way. Will have to support the engine to remove the motor mounting. Remove the large motor mounting engine bracket. Remove the serpentine belt. Remove upper timing belt covers. Remove various pulleys AFTER setting TDC. Unbolt and move power steering pump and A/C compressor. Absolutely definitely should replace WATER PUMP too because it is driven by the timing belt. After belt off, check timing belt tensioner by spinning it. Pros will replace it with timing belt.
It has electronic ignition the timing is adjusted by the cam and crank sensor and regulated by the ecm. In short you can't without messing with the timing belt and since it has an interference engine (the pistons can hit the valves) I would suggest it.
No-there is one belt tensioner for the entire engine belt assembly. The timing belt is a serpentine belt and if it is stretched out, it will need to be replaced. There is no way to adjust the timing belt once it is put on the vehicle.
You don't. The timing belt should have a spring loaded tensioner which pulls on the belt to adjust tension.
