On the 2L (4 cylinder) engine it is recommended to inspect the belt at 37200 miles and replace the belt at 56000 miles.
On the 2.7L (V6) it is recommended to replace the belt at 60000 miles.
And, both these engines are interference engines (meaning if they break a belt, pistons hit and bend valves) which is not a pretty sight...

With regrets, Not likely, pull the vlave cover and observe the height of the valves, if it is bent it should be not quite as tall as the rest.

I have a 1995 xj6....same problem. I replaced the belts, water pump, and the alternator. Still does it. As I play with the tension on the belt (belt that drives water pump, alternator) it goes away and comes back. If I remove the belt, the metal to metal screech stops. I then, with just the belt, turned the main pulley on the front of the engine, and there was the sound! The main pulley has 2 belts that run on it. Also, 2 pulley tracks. They SHOULD move simultaneously and be super meshed. But the rear one moves on its own under tension until it warms up and I guess, the bushing maybe expands. Now.....how do I fix it??????

SOURCE: the timing belt tensioner of
your vehicle doesnt have timing belt, but it has a chain. i think that you have a problem with upper timing chains, not the tensioner. is the car noisy when you rev it up?? kind of a whining noise?? at about 2000-3000rpm's??
