There is no manual adjustment for those overhead cam engines. They use those things called tensioner and idler. If it has about 100,000 miles or so it would better to replace the belt, tensioner, idler, and water pump all at once. Cause if you dont and just replaced the belt only then later the water pump can go bad then you will have to take everything all apart again. The belt can usally last about 100,000 mile before needing replacement. If you are going to replace the belt you will need a tool that will hold the overhead cams before you remove the belt cause the cams can shift (turn) when the belt is removed due to pressure from the valve springs.
