Default loose timing belt

Ok so let's say you have a loose timing belt. Car still starts and runs fine. Mileage is pretty high. Let's say almost 200.ooo miles. I know you should address this situation with replacing water pump, timing belt and tensioner but is there the option of retorquing the timing belt? Pretty much tighten it back down?


I'm just curious so any input os good except.... just replace it. Lol

Pretty much looking to see if after time it just loosens up on the tensioner or if tye belt is stretching

Default Re: loose timing belt

Recommended replacement interval is every 90,000 miles. If it has not been replaced within the last 20k-30k, you should start thinking about replacing it. If it breaks, which they will do, it can leave you stranded and has the possibility of doing damage to the valves and pistons as well.
