If the timing did jump and assuming no damage to the engine you'll need to get in to the engine and replace the timing belt and tensioner. This can be done on your own if your up to it. With the right tools it will take 5-6 hours. In the meantime do not attempt to start or run the engine.
I hope this may have helped,

2003 timing chain jump how serious is this problem?

Broken timing belt can cause significant damage. Bent valves and possible damage to cylinders. I would seek another mechanics view. It is unusual for a belt to break with such low K's. You could have a mechanic visually check for damage by removing the head or weigh off the cost of putting a new belt in and having the mechanic check each cylinder for compression. Likelihood of damage is greatly dependant on the engine design if there is no clearance between piston tops and valves significant damage is much more likely. Do consider another mechanic in my opinion.

Wrong belt. Check with parts store make sure you got the right belt. If that's not the case then one of your pulleys are worn out and causing it to jump time

How do you check the timing on a 1992 honda civic 1.5 liter motor.

buy using a timing gun, any mechanic shop can do it for barley nothing. If you start having problems running correctly you might consider to have the timing belt check and replace, you dont want the timing belt to break or jump time, being 92' it may not ever have the timing belt replace. if it break or jump time bad, the chance you take is bent valves. timing belt should be replace every 75-100 k miles

I have a 2002 hyundai sonata 4 cylender, it stopped running on me. It was towed to a shop(not Hyundai) I've purchase a fuel pump(they discovered that it wasn't the fuel pump) I've purchased spark plugs...

if jump time that should be it timing marks and the tensioner are to lined up an also install new tensioner and recommend water pump if driven by the timing belt. if it has bent valves cause you jump time usually the car won't trun over at all.

Timing Belt Problem-6 cylinder Saturn wont' start

If your timing belt broke, then it is possible that the valves in your engine got bent, which won't allow the cylinders to pressurize the fuel/air mixture, and it will let all of the mix to flow freely into the intake/exhaust manifold. This can be checked with a pressure tester that is threaded into the spark plug opening. A mechanic should have one, or you can probably find one at an auto parts store.

Why has the timing belt jumped again less than 3 weeks after being replaced?

My belt did the same. The problem was, the tension pulley was damaged on the first belt change.
Hope this helps.

I hope you put the timing belt in correctly. If you did not, the valves are bent.
