      I'd raise bigger preflop because he'll call anyway, your hand figures to be best like always, and you're out of position. 6BB for me.

      without reads on what he is limp/calling with preflop, we have to assume he could have anything. because he seems loose passive, he'd likely call the flop with worse all day long, so i'd cbet for pure value.

      the turn is somewhat bad because he could have peeled with a 5, and being out of position valuebetting becomes kinda thin. i'd probably bet/fold turn and c/f the river anyway because he'll still call with worse on the turn, and if he decides to bet or raise by himself, we know he likes his hand and we can fold confortably.

      As played, we gave up initiative and we cant be sure he's not gonna bet the river too, which means finding out what he's up to could be expensive, even with the great odds we get on the turn.
      If you've seen him react to a check by betting smallish before and then giving up, you can c/c and c/f the river to see what that line means from him, but from a loose passive player its unlikely he's floating very often. Calling down loose passive players isn't the way to go against them.

      This.

      He is not likely to raise you light at the turn, so you can bet rather than check/call, you'll lose the same amount if you are beaten, but you still protect vs draws.
      If he raises you he's almost certainly ahead.
