I wouldn't recommend just loosening it and re tension it like that since it is a interference motor. Make sure you re time it to ensure that it is in time when you re-tension it. Next time drive down to Texas and we'll do it for ya, we've done it numerous times already lol
^^this. The belt will walk off as it is doing when the tensioner is not set correctly
