Certainly. Timing is critical to an engines operation and a stretched chain wont allow the valves to open and close at the correct time or the ignition to deliver a spark at the right moment.

When to change Timing belt for 1995 ford E-250?

Not sure which motor you have but none offered in the full size vans would have a belt. It would be a timing chain and they will usually last the life of a motor as they are internally lubricated by the engine oil of the motor. I have never heard of a broken timing chain under normal use. Usually they get stretched and can become noisy and/or jump a tooth and cause the motor to loose correct timing and run bad or not start.
