How do you tighten the serpentine belt on a 1998 Saturn Sl2?

you don't. This car has an automatic belt tensioner. The spring inside this part is probably worn out. You have to replace the tensioner. It is also possible that the belt that is now on the engine has stretched beyond the point that the tensioner can compensate for; the belt may feel tight, but not be tight enough. In that case, of course, replace the belt. The Haynes manual has good instructions on how to do that, and the belt is not particularly expensive. ----------------------------------------
