You must reset the timing cause you can not reset just one tooth on it and yes you have to lock itin place cause the tentioner can nock it out of place when you increase the preasure

I have a 50 cc scooter 4 stroke i have replaced starter, battery, carb, ignition coil, cdi, intake valve and springs, it jumped time on a test run after replacing carb,

If it is firing and the spark is good it has to be the fuel system. Check the carb you just put in(make sure the gaskets are sealing and all the air ventilation holes are not clogged). also the air intake system. It is usually located around the carb connected to a hose or other rubber related system. You may have a leak somewhere. All you are getting is fuel and no air to balance out the fuel.

Won't start just make a popping sound

Popping through the intake usually means timing is off. Timing chains & belts can jump a tooth. Check timing & crank positioning sensor

On my Honda 200x 1984 timing jumps one tooth after setting kicked first time ride jumped out.65.50 wisco big bore kit.12 tooth drive socket. Set tenchner til chain sound stops?,

2 questions come to mind has the new sprocket got the same pitch ( distance between teeth ) as the crank shaft sprocket as this will make the chain jump out after a few degrees of movement. A quick check is to wrap the chain around the sprocket and see if there are links that do not sit fully around the teeth. There are different pitches for teeth and chains ( BA-- AM and metric)

P0017 code on a 2006 buick rainier 4.2 liter

That code says that the crankshaft and camshaft are not in sync. Sounds to me like a timing belt or timing chain has jumped a tooth or two. Need to have cam and crank set back to proper locations, er, in sync again.

Look for some Youtube videos on this repair. If I remember correctly the links on this chain have different color metal for the spots that the cam tooth goes against. When each side is in the proper tooth the right and left colored links will be on the cam mark and the crank mark should be on the timing TDC mark. Sounds like the slack you describe is wrong and a tooth is off because the tensioner is allowing slack.. You need to slip a tooth one way or the other until the tensioner has room to be in a neutral position.

The chain could jump a tooth or two, but normally a chain or gear breaks. You could pull the spark plugs and check compression to find out.
It sounds like one or two injectors may have failed allowing liquid gas to flow into the cylinders.

It's one of two things. The plug wires are not on in the correct firing order or your timing chain has jumped a tooth on the crank or cam sprocket. You need to remove the distributor cap and make sure there is not a plug wire crossed somewhere by following the firing order in the direction of rotation on the distributor. If not hook a timing light up and see what the timing is running at. If the timing chain jumped a tooth you will need to replace the timing chain. Most of the old timing gear sets had a nylon cover over the teeth and it chips off and or the chain stretches and then the chain cam jump a tooth on the gear and throw the valve timing off enough to where you have the problem you describe. If you have very high mileage probably the timing chain. Also for $250.00 bucks I would start with the garage that did the tune up and tell them there is a problem. See what they say. Hopefully they are an honest garage. Good luck.

Changed timing chain on a 2000 astro 4.3, new chain is as loose as the original one, maybe 1/2 in of play, is this normal? i keep getting crankshaft and camshaft correlation code, distributer is set right...

Usually the timing chain has a nylon slide to rub against to keep tension on it, or a wheel, 1/2 inch doesn't sound too bad, not like it is going to jump time. The dist being moved one tooth, I'm surprised it even runs. I would get the number one piston to TDC, check it with timing mark, pull the dist and put the rotor on number one spark plug, follow the wire, then get it running, and make adj from there, if it needs to be retarded to run or start, move it, a timing light will show it come up about 5 degrees BTDC. If all else fails, check the cam sensor, it will cause it to run crazy. Hope this helps.

You must have your distributor out one tooth. Or else the chain is out one tooth. When you aim a timing light at the mark, if the mark is jumping around, your chain is wrong.
If neither of those, then check your firing order, and make sure all the plug wires are on firmly, and are not damaged.

Dodge Grand Caravan 2005 P0016 code

Im assuming it is an engine that uses a timing belt. It sounds like the belt has jumped 1 tooth. if it only jumped 1 tooth than the computer will compesate the timing so it is possible the sensors will say they are ok. If it is a motor that uses a chain than it problaly needs a new gear/chain set.
