if timing chain has skipped a tooth, the car will run like crap. you would also hear rattling coming from timing chain area as chain is loose and stretched for it to jump a tooth. more likely to have lost a tooth off one of the timing gears. also u will not be able to time the engine correctly in this condition

What happens when the timing chain is going out?

redo the timing or replace the whole kit - I might add that replacing the entire timing chain as a kit is what you would do when you find out that the timing chain is bad. The question was what happens when the timing chain is going out? 1. It may get or be harder to start the engine 2. The engine performance will be down 3. The ignition and cam timing will be unstable 4. The engine has a greater potential to "jump" timing or become mistimed. This could lead to bent valves and other problems which are more expensive to fix.

Not sure what engine you have but it is highly unlikely the timing would jump being that it is driven by a chain. If it was to jump it probably wouldn't start and possibly backfire in the attempt to start.

Does a 00 Skoda felicia 1.3 glxi have a timing chain or timing belt?

A 2000 Skoda Felicia 1.3 mpi has a timing chain. Not a timing belt. A timing chain. So buying a used felicia and not replacing it is not actually risky, as with a car with a timing belt. The chain of course will also develope 'slack', so it is a good idea to change it after so many klms, and/or if it as gotten too noisy. The possibility of the chain breaking is very very very slim. It WILL develope some slack though, and might jump a tooth, worsening performance and fuel economy. Parts are cheap for the felicia.
