When it jumped timing, it's possible that the piston's hit the valves and they may be bent. Have a compression test done and see if you have cyclinder pressure.

You will need to have that fixed in case it jumps a tooth or 2. You don't want engine damage. I'd say the chain tensioner has failed.

Timing marks for the Dodge 2.4L caravan, 2000


To align both sets of timing marks, turn engine crankshaft to the right with belt on cam and crank. Once you have done this the crankshaft alignment mark (on front of crankshaft gear) will line up with mark to the rear of gear on engine block.The two cam gear timing marks should be alines across from one another. The right cam gear is the intake side and the left side is the exhaust side. After removing the belt turn the exhaust cam down 1/2 notch. Timing mark on exhaust 1/2 notch down from the intake side. Install new belt and recheck everything to make sure it's all correct. Hope this will help you.
