It might depending on how much it jumped.

Could also be a head gasket problem.

I reset the timing belt & rechecked compression, got 90 for cyl 1&3 still 0 for cyl 2&4. don't see a valve job in my future,think i'll just call a time & put a toe tag on it.

Dawg!!! Rock out in style with a new or CPO ride...do it Big Willie Style, ya heard!!
