OK so I have this chirping sound coming from the engine bay. So far i have replaced:

Water Pump
Idler Pulley
Alternator
All of the Timing Belt Pulleys


All I have left is the power steering and the tensioner.

My question is about the tensioner and the idler pulley. Can I use my old idler pulley to replace the tensioner? There's nothing wrong with the idler pulley.
