Yes it can be a (POTENTIAL) problem and it can definitely change how the engine runs/performs IMHO Is it acting up on you now ? sometimes they will be fine but not alway's the case. JMO

it runs ok besides not being as strong as it should, ive always thought the car had a timing problem and it seems every time i time it the timing is somewhere else, built it a while ago and sorta just gave up on tuning it cause it never performed anywhere near where it should
