Engine is equipped with timing chains and to jump time means the chain have skipped a tooth or more resulting in the valve timing not being synchronised with the crankshaft.

If there are no damage to the valve trains, you need to remove the timing chain and realign (replacement might be necessary if there are excessive wear).
