Just got a new timing chain on a 2003 Nissan Altima. Car is using a lot more gas, now. Is it possible that something happened during this repair that has made the car burn more gas?

If they got the chain off one tooth that could cause the problem. Is the engine power way off too? The tune up that the first two posters mentioned is also a good idea.
