Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Should I have the tensioner tightened up or have the whole timing belt replaced.

Think it has a chain. Have ALL timing componets replaced. Too much lobor involved to have to do it again later if another original part fails!
I agree with Pushrod.

The tensioner is hydraulic; Can not tighten, when it leaks, it needs to be replaced. As far as replacing the timing belt, if you have at 60,000 or more miles on it, probably good idea. It's always better to be safe then sorry.
