Timing belts don't get 'loose', they break!! You must mean serpentine belt, check the tentioners...

Replace timing belt & related tensioners & or ldler @ recommended times. Type of mileage you can go depends a lot on whether miles are in town or highway. Zero interference engines can be expensive if timing belt & related parts are not serviced. Do it.
