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

Here is a guide to help you see what I am talking about

and

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).

Book time for job is listed at twenty one hours.

Check out the diagrams (Below)

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.
