Question about 1988 Pontiac 6000 Wagon
Changed the head gasket and it wont start , backfires out the throttle body , timing must be out , pontiac 6000 le 2.5 engine , what should I do
First check to be sure the vavuum lines at the throttle body are in there correct places.
on the main pulley of your engine, the one on the crank shaft there will be a little notch on it. mark the notch with some chalk or a dab of white paint. then loosen the bolt that holds down the distributor until you can turn the distributor. turn the distributor a little bit, snug the bolt up and try it. once you have the car running you will need a timing lite to set the timing to the correct timing mark. which should be 8 degrees before top dead center for you car.
