Question about 1996 Chevrolet K1500
I want to know how I can set the timing on my 1996 Silverado Z71.
An OBDll compliant scan tool is required for this procedure. With the ignition off install scan tool to the data link connector. [found inside vehicle, drivers side below dash] start the engine and bring the vehicle to operating temperture. Monitor cam ****** on scan tool. If cam ****** is between -2 degrees and +2 degrees the distributor is properly adjusted. If cam ****** is not between -2 degrees and +2 degrees the distrubtor must be adjusted. With the engine off loosen the distributor hold-down bolt. Start the engine and check cam ****** reading, rotate the distrubtor counterclockwise to compensate for a negative reading and clockwise to compensate for a positive reading. Momentarily raise the engine speed to over 1000 rpm and check cam ****** reading. If the proper reading is not achieved repeat steps 7 and 8. When the proper reading has been achieved tighten the distributor hold-down bolt and disconnect the scan tool.
