Question about 1995 Nissan Quest

1 Answer

How do you set the timing on a Nissan Quest 1995??

I aligned the pulley to the yellow mark and pointed the rotor to the 1st spark plug the car started but I need to fine tune it. Where do you find the screw to adjust with the gun?

How do I adjust the timing when it won't start. I just put in a new Distributer


As long as you installed the distributor back in the way it came out, you should be able to start it and then you will need a timing light and can attempt to adjust the timing.

How to set distrubutor timing after engine overhaul


Pull number one spark plug, so you can find Top Dead Center (TDC) of compression stroke for number one cylinder. Put a socket on the crank pulley bolt, and turn clockwise with your finger over the spark plug hole. Keep turning until you feel pressure on your finger. Soon as you feel pressure build up, look at crank pulley, and keep turning until the zero degrees mark lines up on the pointer scale. Now you are at TDC of compression stroke for number one cylinder. If distributor is installed, check that rotor is pointing to number one spark plug tower. If not lined up, or if distributor is not yet installed, set distributor in place to have rotor pointing to number one spark plug tower on the distributor cap.
That's all. When engine is running and warmed up, check and set timing with a timing light.

How do i install a distributor to a nissan pick up


It is necessary to place the No. 1 cylinder in the firing position to correctly install the distributor. To locate this position, the ignition timing marks on the crankshaft front pulley are used.

Remove the No. 1 cylinder spark plug. Turn the crankshaft until the piston in the No. 1 cylinder is moving up on the compression stroke. This can be determined by placing your thumb over the spark plug hole and feeling the air being forced out of the cylinder. Stop turning the crankshaft when the timing marks indicate TDC or 0.

Oil the distributor housing lightly where the distributor bears on the cylinder block.

Install the distributor so that the rotor, which is mounted on the shaft, points toward the No. 1 spark plug terminal tower position when the cap is installed. Of course you won't be able to see the direction in which the rotor is pointing if the cap is on the distributor. Lay the cap on the top of the distributor and make a mark on the side of the housing just below the No.1 spark plug terminal plug terminal. Make sure that the rotor points toward that mark when you install the distributor. On the VG30i, align the mark on the distributor shaft with the protruding mark on the housing.

When the distributor shaft has reached the bottom of the hole, move the rotor back and forth slightly until the driving lug on the end of the shaft enter the slots cut in the end of the oil pump shaft and the distributor assembly slides down into place.

When the distributor is correctly installed, the breaker points should be in such a position that they are just ready to break contact with each other or a lobe of the reluctor is aligned with the stator contact. This is accomplished by rotating the distributor body after it has been installed in the engine. Once again, line up the marks that you made before the distributor was removed from the engine. On the VG30i, the distributor rotor should be in the 11:25 o'clock position (between 11 and 12 o'clock).
  1. Install the distributor hold-down bolt.
  2. Install the spark plugs.
  3. Install the cap, primary wire, and vacuum line(s).
  4. Install the spark plug leads. Consult the marks made during removal to be sure that the proper lead goes to each plug. Install the high tension wire if it was removed.
  5. Start the engine. Check the timing and adjust it if necessary.


    Hope this helps, be sure to upvote if it does :)

How do I set the distributor on a 2000 gmc jimmy? Just changed the intake gaskets, but forgot to mark the position of the rotor.


Get the number one piston up, Take the spark plug out the first one on the drivers side.Rotate the engine until the piston reaches TDC before it starts to decend back. U can use a screw driver to put in the spark plug hole.The rotor must point towards the number one spark plug. your local library will have this infor or autozone

How to set the timing on a ford ltd 1982


POINT TYPE IGNITION SYSTEMS
  1. Locate the timing marks on the crankshaft pulley and the front of the engine.
  2. If they appear dirty, clean the timing marks with a wire brush. Once clean, apply white paint to the marks to make them more visible.
  3. Attach a dwell meter/tachometer to the engine.
  4. Attach a timing light according to the tool manufacturer's instructions.
  5. Unfasten the distributor vacuum line at the distributor and plug the vacuum line. A small bolt, center punch, golf-tee, or similar object is satisfactory for a plug.
  6. Check to make sure that all of the wires, whether disconnected or attached to the timing light or tachometer, clear the fan and belts.
  7. Start the engine and allow it to reach normal operating temperature.
  8. Adjust the idle to the correct setting, if needed.
  9. Aim the timing light at the timing marks and depress the trigger on the light. If the marks on the pulley and the engine are aligned when the light flashes, the timing is correct. Turn OFF the engine, then remove the tachometer and the timing light. If the marks are not in alignment, proceed with the following steps.
  10. Loosen the distributor lockbolt (a special distributor wrench is available) just enough so that the distributor can be turned with effort.
  11. With the timing light aimed at the pulley and the marks on the engine, turn the distributor in the direction of rotor rotation to ****** the spark, and in the opposite direction of rotor rotation to the advance spark. Align the marks on the pulley and the engine using the flashes of the timing light.
  12. When the marks are aligned, tighten the distributor lockbolt and recheck the timing to make sure that the distributor did not move when you tightened the lockbolt.
  13. After timing has been set, tighten the distributor hold-down bolt to 17–25 ft. lbs. (23–34 Nm).

While pointing the timing light at the timing marks, the other hand can rotate the distributor body to reach the correct alignment

Set timing after replacing distributor


Ignition Timing
  1. sxv~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Parking brake control should be applied.
    Depress the parking brake pedal, and warm the engine to the normal operating temperature.
  2. Turn off all electrical loads.
  3. Start the engine and rev it to 2000-3000 rpm two or three times and allow the engine to return to the idle.
  4. Check the idle speed. The idle speed should be between 700-800 rpm in PARK (P) or NEUTRAL (N) position.
  5. NOTE: Make sure that the timing pointer is pointing to the 15° Before Top Dead Center (BTDC) mark on the crankshaft pulley. Each notch on the crankshaft pulley represents 5 degrees.
    Check the ignition timing with a timing light.
  6. If the marks are not aligned, loosen the distributor bolt and turn the distributor to make the adjustment. The ignition timing should be between 13°-17° BTDC.

Rigoe the points for the timing belt are usually located on the sprokets in conection with marks or dots on the engine block some where around the sprockets that hold the timing belt. Remenber to bring the piston number one to TDC (top dead center), this means you have to locate the piston number one, take the spark plug out and turn the cranshaft (the one with the pulley) by hand until the piston is all the way up. On the distributor the rotor should point to the spark-plug wire number one (you can make a mark outside of the distributor cap where the number one spark-plug wire is pointing so when you take the cap off you can see if the rotor is pointing the same direction). With the timing belt cover off you are going to be able to aling all this points at the exact locacation all together. So we have: Piston number one at TDC, The rotor(enside the distributor cap) pointing to the number one spark-plug wire, and the mark of the sprockets pointing the marks of the engine block( litle dot or dash). If you get all this right you are have done a good job and ready to make a trip you can get all this just by turning the cranshaft by hand with a rachet and a big socket. God bless you.
