I had an 88 Grand Am with the 2.5L that scrapped the timing GEARS
about 3.5 hours away from home and it did no damage to the engine. All it took to fix was new gears, labor, and misc parts (after I finally got the car home) and the car still runs; I still see the car a couple times a week around town (183,000 miles when I sold it). Never had that experience with a Jeep (and I hope I never do).
