Question about 2000 Honda Prelude
Go to your auto parts store and get some loctite thread locker. It's like a glue for holding bolts in place and tighten the heck out of it.

Tighten to spec (very tight...) and with the right tools. Or just get a new one. Something could be faulty with the one you have.

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.

There are two belts in this system; the one running to the camshaft pulley is the timing belt. The other, shorter one drives the balance shaft and is referred to as the balancer belt or timing balancer belt. Use a piece of chalk or a marker to place an identifying arrow on the belts. The arrow can identify the direction of rotation or the outer edge of the belts. The belts must be reinstalled so it moves in the same direction. Protect the belts from oil, coolant, etc. It's an even better idea to replace the belts at this point.
