Can you fix jumped timing?

There is no easy way to correct a jumped timing belt. You will need to disassemble a portion of the engine to gain access to the belt tensioner, so you can move the belt back into position. I suggest replacing the belt and tensioners while you have it apart, so you don’t have this problem again.

It takes about 5 hours to put a new head on your vehicle but, again, you have to add time for the timing components and other incidentals. So, at $80 an hour, you’re up to roughly $1,000 ($500 for the head and $500 for labor roughly) in a scenario where ONLY the valves were damaged.
