To re-install a belt tensioner for a 1987 Ford Taurus, tighten the bolt when the tensioner pulley is holding the serpentine belt tight. The belt tensioner sits in a slot and can be adjusted to hold the belt tight.
You have to install a new belt tensioner.
Automatic tensioner- no adjustment required, or provided. If the tensioner is out of limits, replace the tensioner.
Pull it out and fit a new one
It uses a spring loaded belt tensioner. The tensioner is autmatically set. IF there is not enough tension, then replace the tensioner. The belt may be stretched and need replacment however.
The tensioner has a spring in it that provides the correct tension for the belt. If it is too loose, replace the tensioner.
Something is out of line. Check alternator, a/c pump, idler and tensioner. I've had 3 Taurus and never a single broken belt.
As viewing the motor from the front of the car, the belt tensioner is located on the left side of the engine. On what is essentially the front of the motor, the belt tensioner is located just below the idler pulley.
