Timing Chain

I've been told my timing chain is loose.

What is the worse thing that can happen if do not react?

Can someone describe to me what to do to solve the problem?

Well, if the timing chain is loose, usually the worst that can happen is the motor would jump a tooth or two and you'd end up backfiring like a mother....

I've seen one or two that have actually broken the chain, but those were some high HP engines.

The only way to remedy this problem to my knowledge is replace the chain (or the tensioner if it's bad).

I have a full tank of Unleaded...
