There may be a chance you have upset the timing, if you upset the timing by any small amount it wont ignite the fuel in the chambers leaving the car to die (stop)

it takes a small amount of time for the combustion to take place and therefore its not an instant spark. try re calibrating the timing and see if it works

Was driving at approximately 30 mph, the oil light flashed, the vehicle lost RPMs, but did not overheat. engine was immediately shut down. Also suspects that the timing chain went out.

Jessica, Yes may need timing chain, It is good you shut down immediately. Have a reputable technician look at and repair.

Replaced fuel pump now timing chain is broken. is that normal?

Sounds like bad luck...changing the fuel pump will have not have an adverse effect on the timing chain. Although timing chains are are way more reliable than timing belts, they still do break. Scott

Do you need to change the timing chain on a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee at 75,000 miles?

You will not need to change a timing chain unless you know or suspect it to be bad. Belts and other material that wear down need to be changed but the timing chain itself is a metal similar to that of a bike chain but much shorter and thicker

1989 ford f150 w/ 5.0 liter..... engine light on

I would check the oil pressure of the engine. The reason is the timing chain tensioners are run with oil pressrue. I think your timing chain tensioners are leaking down when engine is getting to operating tempature . The oil is thinning down as warms up , as it should to lubercate . I would check compression and do a cylinder leak down test on all the cylinders. Then if the compression is good and the cylinder leak down is good. I would change all the timing components, ( chain, timing gears, timing chain tensioners )

Good Luck , I hope this helps.
