Is it possible that the error codes I am getting are caused because I messed up the timing when the camshaft moved during timing chain installation?

cam shaft moving... i wouldn't think the shaft moving would do it, nothing was running, but your timing is more then likely off if you didnt time it to factory settings if you have ..then
the codes bank 1 and 2 could be pointing to your O2 sensors EGR is very much aprt of the O2's and it's function.

2001 Ford F-150 4.6 liter romeo. Could the error codes I am geting be caused by incorrect timing?

It sure sounds like you are off one tooth on the timing chain. The fact you are getting different codes for each bank points that direction too. You should be able to check all your marks again. That's where I'd start.

Cx 7 mazda cel codes P0011 and P0016

Causes may include:
  • Timing chain stretched, or timing belt skipped a tooth due to wear
  • Misalignment of timing belt/chain
  • Tone ring on crankshaft slipped/broken
  • Tone ring on camshaft slipped/broken
  • Bad crank sensor
  • Bad cam sensor
  • Damaged wiring to crank/cam sensor
  • Timing belt/chain tensioner damaged
  1. First, visually inspect the cam and crank sensors and their harnesses for damage. If you notice broken/frayed wires, repair and recheck.
  2. If you have access to a scope, check the cam and crank patterns. If a pattern is missing, suspect a bad sensor or a slipping tone ring. Remove the cam gear and the crankshaft harmonic balancer and inspect the tone rings for proper alignment and make sure they're not loose or damaged or that they haven't sheared the key that aligns them. If they are properly installed, replace the sensor.
  3. If the signal appears normal, then check the timing chain/belt for proper alignment. If it's misaligned, check for a damaged tensioner that may have allowed the chain/belt to slip a tooth or several teeth. Also check that the belt/chain isn't stretched. Repair and recheck

Timing chain 2 7

Your engine will seized and your car will come to a halt. You won't be able to drive it. Of course getting a timing chain replaced before it does damages to the engine is a good idea. Otherwise, it will cost you a lot more to fix if the chain does break.

My ford f150 is getting fire and gas but wont start i replaced the module,pickup in the dist.,cap,button,new plugs fuelpump,filter any ideas

check to see it the timing chain broke or jumped,have checked to see if you were getting spark and fuel in the begining.if you had these before then you replaced some things without needing them,unless its been a while since a tune-up was check the timing chain turn the engine over until the timing marks are aligned.the pointer across from the 0 mark on the timing cover.then pull the distributor cap noting were #1 plug terminal is and the rotor should be pointing at that spot.if the timing chain broke it will sound like there is no compression.

At what mileage does the timing chain need to be replaced? jeep wrangler 2008,3.8 L 6 cil.80,000 miles

You change the timing chain now when your Jeep has indicated from a check engine light on. The timing chain in engines these days last as long as the engine will, there is a timing chain tensioner to ensure there is no slack.
When the timing chain has gotten stretched to much, your Jeeps PCM will indicate that with a check engine light on your dash and will be indicated with a DTC codes from a scanner.
So no worries about replacing your timing chain and keep up the regular maintenance, if you have a Mechanic tell you other wise, there just looking for money and your looking for more then just a timing chain being replaced.
You can bet that chain, chain tensioner, timing gears, water pump and might even throw in a cam replacement will be in his recommendation.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

What are simne problems you will have if your timing chain needs to be replaced?

If your timing chain needs to be replaced, your S10 will throw a DTC codes that will indicate an issue with your timing. Most common issue is that, it's not the timing chain, but the worm gear to your distributor.
Gm has issue that the worm gear's were soft and tend to wear out causing the timing to be off. You can not set or check the timing on your Vortec without a Tech2 scanner to check the timing. The PCM self adjust for any timing issues from the inputs from the crank, cam and knock sensor.
If your have issues with your 4.3 vortec, most likely. It's going to be a bad SCPI issues of the injectors being dirty with carbon build or it's gone way to bad to be cleaned and will need to be replaced.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck

Do timimg chains need to be replaced (not a belt)?

Timing chains do need to be replaced but they can typically go much longer between being serviced than can timing belts. The chain will stretch out over time and can 'jump' timing. If you have an interference engine then that can prove disastrous as the piston can crash into the valves.

Its not terribly common for a timing chain to jump timing but not impossible. I have a vehicle with nearly 120k with a timing chain and its never been replaced and is still in good shape, I have another vehicle with 170k also with a timing chain that has never been replaced.

If it were me and I was going to be doing some work in that area and had easy enough access to the timing chain, and the mileage was getting up there, I would replace it. Timing chains typically also have a tensioner, so if you replace it, dont forget this item.
