What does it mean for a car to jump time? What does it take to fix this problem?
have the same problem?

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).
Book time for job is listed at 21 hours.

1997 lhs 3.5l 165k. Had waterpump changed. They were supposed to do timing also but didn't. Car ran 3 days fine, then wouldn't start.
This is the third time my saturn has jumped time. Why would the timing chain keep coming loose enough for it to jump time this much
