i am in the middle of replacing the thermostat and am working on taking the timing belt off in order to get to the thermostat. i plan on replacing the belts anyways. but my question is, is the tensionser that rod sticking out that has a nut on it located behind the belts and to the left somewhat near the overflow reservoir??

the tensioner isn't that rod, it's the thing that's around it. That rod is the tensioner stud, which also has a tensioner spring on it. The thing inbetween the engine block and that nut on the end of the tensioner stud is the tensioner.

And as freewill said, you do not need to remove the Tbelt to get to the thermostat. Only the fan shroud, splash guard, some misc. coolant hoses and probably one or two other pieces. Read up in the haynes, it helped me out.
