If the cover is off and yess it should be tight on the drivers side as the crankshaft is turning the camshaft.

When you change the timing belt inspect the tenstioner. If it is not in perfect condition replace it.

The Pontiac Grand Prix has a Timing Chain with a spring loaded tensioner. The tensioner is know to wear, crack and then break. The timing chain and tensioner should be replaced at 100,000 miles. This is a pretty big job that can be done with the motor in the car. $$$ Ray
