Try 18 ft-lbs not 18 inch-lbs.

I tightened it to 18 foot lb and the same thing is going on it's like it is not even tightening it, pops right back.

the timing on these cars can be a little touchy. you might need to do the process a few times before you get it. turn the key till the tensioner indicator arrow is in the new belt position then tighten down the bolt. turn engine two times make sure everything is still in place. if its not in place repeat procedure. i think thats it. let us know if you get it. if not theres always the possibility theres some kind of a problem. anything else just ask!
