Q: How long can a loose timing chain drag on the housing before requiring repair? on 2006 Kia Sedona

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I recently bought a used 2006 Kia Sedona with 94,000 miles on it. Now I realize that my timing chain is defiantly loose at startup for a few seconds until enough hydraulic pressure builds up on the tensioner. Now that I know the problem should I have the engine pulled and have the timing chain and the tensioner replaced or is this an issue that can be ignored for 50,000 miles?
