If the tensioner pulley is out of alignment then the tensioner is coming apart. Eventually it will completly seperate and the belt will fall off. They are easily replaceable.

Remove any oil or water on the idler pulley and keep it clean.
If the old timing belt is being reinstalled, make sure the directional arrow is facing in the original direction and that the belt and crankshaft gear matchmarks are properly aligned.
On 2S-ELC engines, make sure that the Matchmark on the oil seal retainer and center hole of the small hole on the camshaft timing pulley are aligned.
