How do you reset timing chain tensioner of 1998 cavalier 2.4?

With the tensioner installed, you have to push the center of the tensioner piston inward with a screwdriver several times until it releases. When it releases the piston will move outward and push the chain guide tensioner against the chain. If this does not work buy a new one at autozone ($42.00), which is what I had to do. The new tensioner is the same type and works the same way. Vehicle: 1997 Chevy Cavalier 2.4L
