i think u mean cambelt not shaft as i cant see that snapping. Though the answer for both is the same yea it will damge the valve's and pistons this is because the cam will stop and the crank will keep on goin.This means pistons will meet valves at speed (not good) sometimes on petrol engines there is enough clearance so the 2 wont meet but u dont stand a chance on a diesel.

That could happen if the timing belt slipped time. Something similar happened to a Nissan 3.0 liter I worked on a couple years ago. If the timing only skips a couple teeth it may only be off in one place. The car I was working on had a worn out timing belt tensioner pulley that caused the problem.

P1383 Ford Camshaft Position Timing Over Retarded This is almost always caused by a bad timing belt. It can also be caused by a bad camshaft sensor (usually sets a P0340 code so isn't likely), or improper oil weight. Anything over a 30 weight oil will cause VCT issues. Also, debris in the oil system will interfere with the VCT. The code can also be caused by a faulty VCT solenoid.
