Quite simple, really. 1) Remove battery ground cable. 2) Lightly jack up front of engine to remove weight from mount. 3) Remove front engine mount and serpentine belt. 4) Remove old tensioner bolts. There are 3 or 4, possibly 13mm. Look at new tensioner to note locations. 5) Install new part and reassemble car. Good luck.

On replacing the tensioner you first must raise the van up to get under it, you can reach it better you wil need a long extension & swivel and 15mm socket.

If you have a 2.2 liter 4 cylinder, the water pump is under the alternator on the passenger side and below the serpentine belt tensioner.

There are access holes in the power steering pump pulley which allow the 13mm bolts that fasten the pump to the tensioner plate to be removed. Once these bolts are out the pump can be swung out. This also unblocks one of the tensioner plate bolts-- if replacement of the tensioner plate is necessary.

will 2001 2.2 cavalier interchange engine parts with a 2000 cavalier

"How do you move the idle tensioner for a 1998 3 litre dodge?"

on a 2.2 you just need a 3/8 drive rachet or 15mm wrench to release tension from tensioner.2.4 liter is about the same but you must remove the motor Jim

Note:The drivebelt routing decal on the radiator shroud to help during drivebelt install * To replace the belt rotate the tensioner pulley clockwise to release belt tension * Remove the belt from the auxiliary components and slowly release the tensioner * Route the new belt over the various pulleys again rotating the tensioner to allow the belt to be installed then release the belt tensioner

The 2.2 liter four cylinder engine in a 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier has a timing CHAIN

go to your public library and check out a chilton, haynes, or motor is free and will be complete.

The 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier 2.4L engine has 150HP

You have to remove the belt first, this is easiest with a tensioner tool. Then the nut that holds it to the bracket is on the backside of the tensioner and needs to be done from the bottom.

remove the belt. then in center of the tensioner is a bolt that goes into engine. remove this bolt. then tensioner should come off.

Yes the 2.2 liter 2001 Chevy Cavalier does have an interference engine. This means the valve and pistons share the same space in the engine.

it should be above the radiator on the fan shroud housing. either that or on the hood. good luck make sure your tensioner and pulleys are all in good shape...

There's a 15mm nut on the back of the tensioner you have to remove. It's hard to find and a tight spot but a regular wrench will get it out.

That is referred to as "back dating" and it is illegal at the federal level.

Both the 2.2 and 2.4 liter four cylinder engines in a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier use a timing CHAIN

Chain -No maintenance required unless noise detected - Guide/tensioner has plastic parts that can break/wear out with age, lack of lubrication or overheating. Generally, very durable engine if maintained properly.

You can swap the engine from your 1997 Cavalier 2.2 liter engine to your 2000 Chevy Cavalier. The wiring harness and motor mounts should be in exactly the same.

You don't. they are not adjustable. Its a spring tension on it, therefore you would have to replace the tensioner which only takes one bolt to get the tensioner off. Same thing to re-install the new one!

the timing belt tensioner is located on the lower side of the rear head just below the camshaft drives
