Q: Timing issue with vehicle.

asked by on

The camshaft in my vehicle is jumping the timing.

Your vehicle is equipped with a timing chain that is driven by the engine. There are known issues with the timing chain, as well as the supporting components having the problems you are describing with your vehicle. A diagnosis and repair of this magnitude will require the knowledge, professional tools and experience of a certified mechanic. If you suspect your engine has jumped time then a detailed diagnosis is what needs to be performed. Only then will you know the source of the failure, allowing it to be corrected and determine if additional components were damaged as a result.
