Well, assuming it has the same 3.1 V6 as mine, and the spring is ejecting the unit outward in danger of losing the belt, I wasn't about to pay a $500 towing bill to get her home, so I took the pry bar from the jack that comes with the vehicle, and an 8" section of 1" diameter radiator hose and pryed the tensioner spring back into its normal position, then jammed the hose between the tensioner and the inside of the engine compartment. Had to make a few adjustments, but it made it several hours on the freeway and got me home.
