IF the valve timing ( I assume this is what you are talking about) is done incorrectly then the engine will run badly ( low performance) If it is too far out there will be a bent valve or two.. If it is ignition timing , it will also be running poorly

What will happen if the timing chain on a 2005 mazda 3 snaps willit ruin motor

Yeap sure would but why will it snap, chains last along time I only replace a chain if it gets a bit stretched and starts to rattle and then I usually rebuild the motor, rings, bearings, valve grind, water pump and any thing else while its a part and looks like it needs a birthday, but if you just want to keep it going and compressions good and oil pressures good I have just done the chain to quiet it done and done thousands of miles with no problems every engines got its own problems to figure out. cya Neil

If you broke a timing belt while it was running you bent valves and the heads need to be worked on.You probably have a cylinder with no compresion and the computer is sensing it.

How do you reset alfa romeo 156 2.0 t-spark radio codes? Pleeaaase!

I just bought a '99 156 & had the same problem. As long as you have the 4 digit code then all you have to do is drive around for an hour (time the 60 mins!!) & providing you have switched the stereo "on" at the beginning the " - - - - " will appear on the front at 60mins. Then just type in the digits! The Alfa has this "anti theft" device on the stereo which also means every time the battery is disconnected you have to drive around for an hour before you do it again!

hey i have done a bit of work with alfa's the problem is if the key malfunctions it will register a code in the computer and even if you fix the key it will not work properly, the best thing you can do is find a dealer with a alfa scan tool and they will reprogram the key... its a quick job that can ONLY be done on an alfa tool and beware you may need a new key, sometimes they just go .
