How is ignition timing regulated? Car gets 99 BTDC on ignition timing and failed SMOG Test in CA. Listed as GROSS POLLUTER.


something wrong here
with 99 degrees btdc it will not run
have you got it on the correct plug lead
next the timing is regulated by centrifugal advance if electronic or points and by the crankshaft position sensor if ECM controlled ( some after market distributors that are used in place of points units have a small sensor in the distributor that can adjust the timing according to engine rpms, but it cannot make allowances for mixture and so they can advance the timing but not take into account anything else which sometimes results in detonation under certain throttle settings
so initial setting for most cars is 10-12 degrees btdc at idle and with engine rpms set up to 3000 rms it may advance to 25-30 degrees depending on the advance mechanisms
with ECM units the timing is controlled by the crank position sensor and is set to parameters according to engine rpms and air/fuel ratio settings but it still has a basic 10-12 degrees btdc on starting
to fail smog tests you probably do not have a working cat converter and other problems besides timing

2002 Chrysler Sebring 2.7 liter... When the car starts, I can only bring the RPM's up to 3000. when I've reached 3000 rpms the RPM's start going up and down...I have replaced the fuel pump what should I...


Nothing, you have hit the rev limiter. The up and down is the computer controlling the rpm. If you drive it, it should rev past 3,000. The computer is designed to keep free wheeling rpm to that level. It will only allow a higher rpm if vehicle is in gear and moving with a load.

03 Intrepid starts great, engine quiet, runs spectacular until I hit approx. 40 mph then the rpms will go up to approx. 3000 but the car wont shift. Any suggestions?


Check for codes, may have a bad speed sensor either input(turbine) or output (vehicle) speed sensor. They are a common problem with the Chrysler transmission.

1996 acura 2.5 tl upon start up the engine goes to 2500-3000 rpms then the engine rpms start surging between 1500 to 2000 then after several minutes it goes to a normal idle and runs fine.


Hi, I had the same problem, and is now fixed. Replace your idle control valve, and the idle problem will go away, and your car will be PERFECT!

1999 acura tl 3.2 at 3000 rpms it acts like it has a rev limiter. An it wont let it shift until you let off the gas


Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

The transmission is slipping,try changing the fluid first. If that doesnt take care of the problem your transmission will need a overhaul.

Electronics / wiring / Transmission


You have two sensor in the transmisson which is the in put and out put speed sensor, and is located on the left side of the transmission. 
They are the primary input to the transmission control module which control your shift point and speedometer.
They are easy to replace and only held on by one bolt. Disconnect the wire connector and then the bolt. 
Replaceing is in revers and replace any fluid lost. If you could get it to the parts store and have the truck scaned, they could tell if you need both sensor or only one. Before you go out to the parts store, check the wire connections to see if there lose or broken which may be the cause of your trasmission problem.
Good luck and hope this helps and saves you some money
