Question about 2006 Pontiac Catalina
There's a way to adjust the timing using the adjustment screw on the points through an opening in the distributor cap, which has a sliding metal cover over this opening. it involves starting the engine, then turning the screw in one direction until the engine nearly stalls, then in the other direction--something like a one-quarter or one-half turn. can someone describe this procedure from the time i first take the new points out of the box?
This also does not adjust the timing all this does is adjust the spark gap and create a hotter or colder spark the only way to adjust the timing on the Pontiac engines is with a timing light and a 1/2 inch wrench it should be set somewhere between 12 and 16 degrees Btdc
