Question A question about "Reed Valve"

I drive a 93 Ford Probe SE 4-cylinder. I had its timing belt changed recently. The mechanic said that the "Reed Valve" need to be adjusted. Could anyone tell that what damage can reed valve do to the car and usually how much it will cost to adjust the reed valve. Thanks so much!

Assuming the reed valve is used on the inlet charge cycle the potential downside will be increased fuel consumption and poor performance.
Can't help with the cost.

Is a reed valve used in carburated fuel systems only?
