you can't change the timing in this engine nor can you adjust the valves. The timing is adjusted throught the computer therefore there is no mechanical way to change this. You might be able to with some kind of programmer or computer program.

My Blazer cranks over and over...killed the battery : ...next morning the second time I tried cranking it over it made a poof sound and started but with a lot of chugging. Can anybody help please?


Lynda, If it is the 4.3 V6, they are prone to getting moisture in distributor which causes the symptoms you are talking about including the poof. You can have scanned to see if trouble codes are stored, you may get multiple misfire.
If continues doing this have cap and rotor replaced and if wires and plugs are old do them to. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How do i set the timing on my 98 chevy 350 vortec


You actually can't advance or retard timing on your truck without pulling the timing gears off and manually doing it. however, if you adjust too far you can cause severe damage internal damage to your engine. and the computer is going to try to automatically adjust for whatever adjustment you make. If your question is provoked by a poorly timed engine, ie its running poorly, then i would suggest replacing your timing chain and I always replace the tensioner while i am there as it isn't the easiest thing to do. if you need to know the proper timing let me know.

Installed new distributor in 97 Chevy Vortec V6


Check the wire harness to the Ignition control module (ICM) or replace it. It cost around $40,00 from Auto Zone and it's common for the ICM to fail, or it may just be starting to fail and it's also know that the OEM distributor had a screen vent at the bottom of the distributor for ventilation to prevent condensation from forming in the distributor. Check to make sure your new distributor has a vent and that it's not plugged up with shipping plastic. Condensation may be forming causing the misfire in the distributor. Good luck and keep me posted.
