Q: tension the belt on 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
How do you properly tension the belt on a 1998 chevy monte carlo? Just work the belt tensioner or is there anything else...?
Greatly appreciate any help..
cheers
The serpentine belt on your 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo is automatically tensioned by the tensioner. If the tensioner is working correctly you can move the tensioner to release tension on the belt. After installing the belt just release the tensioner and the spring in the tensioner will automatically tension the belt.

You might want to check for leaks in steering gear boots and if none then the power steering pump is not pumping.

CHECK FOR LEAKS IN STEERING GEAR BOOTS IF NONE, POWER STEERING PUMP NOT PUMPING
