If the timing belt were loose all of a sudden, there is a major issue and should be check ASAP

When the timing belt is replaced, it fairly firm and to loosen up sudden suggests the idler pulley is collapsing, tensioner is faulty, water pump bearing failing and this can cause the valve timing to be horribly out of sync and cause very costly internal damage
