I have a w203,m271, which jumped timing ,and we noted that the inlet sprocket gears teeth were gone,of which we had it replaced.but the problem is that the chain is making noise,and just discovered that it get loose in between the two sprocket gears.we have also changed the tensioner

Hello and welcome

All too common on an M271 unfortunately :(

Hey all am new here.
I have a Mercedes 2006 model c180,w203,m271 which skipped timing upon opening we discovered that the inlet camshaft sprocket gear had lost its teeth,of which we replaced it.but immediately after replacing it,the vehicle started making noise like a it were a diesel engine,after openning the top we found the chain loose in the middle between the two camshaft sprocket gears.
What could really be the problem?

As per above, no requirement to start multiple threads, it just makes it confusing

And don’t drive it, because if it snaps and bends valves, you open a whole new world of pain.

As above, the normal fix is replace both sprockets, chain and tensioner with new.

Go back to whoever replaced the sprocket, & ask why he didn't change the chain at the same time.

Hey everyone,i have just learnt that the inlet sprocket gear locking pin,was off en the time we tried to put on TDC the inlet cam never moved for about 10 or so degrees.after giving it a complete 360 turn the cam aligned. Am now worried,
Is it possible that the valves can be okay?

Now that its timed, do a compression or leakdown to confirm if the valves are seated or not.

Turning by hand they should be fine.

Hey all hope you all great, we have taken out the head and just discovered that the head is richly black,and the valves are closing very well.
Is it possible that the cylinder head gasket would allow air in when not tied correctly?

No. Head gaskets always leak from a high pressure zone to a low pressure one. Generally that means from the cylinder to anywhere else. There are usually lots of other issues if that's the case.
