Greetings from Swaziland! Basic info is hard to come by here in Africa, so could you plse tell me the static timing for this car? Cressida ''21R 1972''; year of car (iaw seat belt) is 1986 There are 4 marks on the flywheel: two raised ones, then to their right, as I look at them, two cuts. All in about half an inch. It has an inductor distributor. Thanks in advance (timing? ho-ho) Alvin

This probably isn't what you want to hear? If your going to work on your own vehicles, you need a basic set of wrenches and sockets, standard and metric sizes.
My info says you need to remove starter in order to remove that sensor. I don't know correct socket size, you need a basic set of tools, if one socket is the wrong size, grab another one.
Also, You may need to do a variation learn procedure after you replace that sensor, I have no experience in that area, you may need a scanner?
Sure, if timing is way off it may not start. Do static timing adjust, check for spark and basic timing using a timing light while cranking. This will tell if you are in the ballpark, and also if you have spark at all. If no spark, test coil, etc.
If the timing chain broke, the timing of the injection pump is likely off also. In order to time that correctly, you need to remove the pump. If you want to tackle that I'll send you more information about setting the basic timing of the pump.
you need a chilton repair manual.it will show and tell you how to replace timing belt tensioner.you need engine lift or crane chain hoist to support engine while you remove front engine mount to remove timing cover.you need basic mechanic tool set.dont try this task without repair manual hard to do.

You need a timing light, hook it up to #1 cylinder plug wire and start the engine-let it warm up, and loosen the hold down bolt under the distributor (1/2")-air the strobe light at the harmonic balancer and gently rotate the loose distributor one direction or the other to the setting indicated on the label on the bottom side of the hood that indicates the specifications for your engine-it should say something like "6 degrees BTDC (before top dead center), @750 RPM". In addition, it may tell you to either disconnect a vacuum hose (and plug it) from the distributor advance canister, attached to the distributor, or to unplug a 'spout' connector that does basically te same thing-provides timing adjustment beyond what the distributor static timing provides.
You know that's going to vary by so much comparing prices from area to area & dealer to dealer that it's hard to give you a suitable answer, but I'll try to provide some guidance.
Your car uses a transponder key,and your best bet would be to buy the key from someplace other than a dealership, then take it to a locksmith for cutting. This will save you money. Go to eBay & the below Item number as it provides you with all of the information you should need & there are other sellers with deals similar.
You can buy a new Transponder key on eBay, I found yours for 12.99 including shipping & handling. Item #: 190372492505
They even tell you how to send them basic info about your key that will allow them to pre-program it for you. (you need a multimeter, but they are available everywhere & inexpensive)
Check out that item and the info they provide, i've found eBay to be an excellent source for new keys over the past 6 years for many vehicles..
The first thing to do is have someone hook up a diagnostic scanner to check the codes. Some auto parts stores will do this for free, or you could purchase a basic scanner and do it yourself. Once you have the codes you'll have a better idea of what repairs need to be performed. Unfortunately without more info, it's hard to tell why the light is on. Hope this helps.
