Depending on what year it is, will determine how it keeps it's tension. Current ones use a spring loaded belt tensioner. Older ones are tensioned by the alternater or Power Steering mounting brackets, by which you force back the appropriate component and tighten down a bolt.
at the power steering pump theres a long bolt on the one side when tighted it tightens the belt.
he tensioner keeps the right amount of tension on the belt. If it is lose, the tensioner needs replaced.

Only if you have the 2.5 liter four cylinder engine in a 2001 Ford Ranger . ( that engine has a timing BELT )
try tightening the tension pully works like a charm
You have to install a new belt tensioner.
Loosen the tensioner pulley. Put the fan belt around the pulleys. Pry the tensioner pulley to the right until the belt is tight. Tighten the tensioner pulley nut.
Change the belt
You can't, the belt is called a serpentene belt, you have to replace the belt.
The cam (timing) belt should last for the life of the vehicle. A Ford Ranger has a smaller motor, that with the right care, should not have to have the cam belt changed.
the belt tensioner does it by itself.short answer no

Make a diagram of all the pulleys and draw the belt in. Locate the belt tensionor. Loosen it. Slide belt off of the pulleys. Look at your diagram and install the new belt. Tighten tensionor. There should be little play in the belt after being installed on the pulleys.
go to a mechanic
