your engine will sound rough while at idle speed and your gas milage will start getting worse.

it also might start to backfire and make a little more noise than it normally would.

YOU don't set the timing on a 96, its all computer controlled. If your timing is off then you have a problem somewhere else. So if you timing is truly off then what needs to be fixed is whats causing it to be off. The computer sets the timing based on feedback that it gets from different sensors on and around the motor. And secondly i don't understand how you could even know if the timing was off in that car. But my advice is, if you know the timing is off and its not throwing any trouble codes, take it to a dealer.

Need to know the year, make, model and engine info but, most engines have timing marks that must be lined up.

If you suspect your timing belt has broken or the teeth have been stripped off of it, the only way to know for sure is to take off you timing belt cover and have a look. Some vehicles had / have interference heads. These vehicles will destroy their own valves if you try to crank them without a timing belt on.

The timing is computer controlled, there is no adjustments. I know this is a little late, but timing could be off because the timing belt is not properly aligned. If the timing belt is installed incorrectly the timing will never be right.
