well, im not sure exactly, but i know on my 93 grand am, 2.3L, there is a tensioner pully on the belt for the compressor/alternator. I do not know about the belt for the power steering pump, i havnt checked that out yet. If there is not a tension pully on the belt, the alternator or something should be adjustable.


I had to buy a set of crows foot wrenches and an tensioner pully wrench to loosten my tensioner pully. There was a little under an inch of clearence between the nut on the pully and the metal around my suspension.

Check power steering pump as they used the pump to ajiust belt before the use of a tensioner pully.
