Hi, I know a trick to adjusting your timing. you will need an assistant. if the truck has an automatic transmission, you can have someone put the vehicle in reverse or drive, keeping the brake pedal pressed down firmly, press the accellerator pedal, advance the timing by turning the distributor, until you get spark knock. Then turn it back just until the spark knock goes away. this may not be the factory spec, but it will give you optimum performance.

Your going to have to get the ECM scaned, there are to many things that can cause that. most places like Auto Zone or Part Source can scan your S 10 free of charge and can also give a how to's if you want to replace the part your self.
Good luck and hope this helps

How do you set the timing on a 1991 Nissan pickup truck 2.4 L 4cyclinder D 21


Autozone lists that engine timing at 10 degrees before top dead center with the engine warm and idling at 800 RPM. That is with the transmission in neutral (parking brake on) and all accessories off. It also states timing and idle speed are electronically controlled and non-adjustable.

What should the timing be set on 1994 toyota pickup


I recently had to replace my water pump 1991 Toyota pickup.Everything was going smooth.What you have to do is make sure both cams are pointed at the marks/notches on the back timing cover.The left one might be pointed a little more to the left of the notch, and the right one may be pointed a little more to the right. the crankshaft has to be pointed at 0 degrees. The only way to be sure this is done proper is to turn the engine twice... use a socket attached to the crankshaft and turn it past the 0 degree mark once, until it comes back again (the second time) both marks on the cams need to match up exactly the way they started... next set a inductive timing light to number one cylinder, and gap the diagnostic terminal under the hood (use a paper clip and connect the e terminal to the terminal (check manual for this, some years you must detach a vacuum tube!!!) after this start the truck, put the timing light on the crankshaft, and measure the timing... timing should be 10 degrees BEFORE top dead center (0 degrees) this is at idle (~700) if the engine is turning faster than this, the timing will be different.. best of luck and make sure the terminals are jumped!! otherwise the engine will try and compensate for the difference

F100 pickup stalls out when coming to a stop. It restarts and drives fine. I've rebuilt the carb., changed the fuel filters and line, and replaced the gas tank and sending unit. What am I missing or do i...


It might be the float but if you don't have any trouble getting the truck up to speed then it's likely fine. The trouble is more likely to be in the idle circuit. The curb idle should be 500 to 750 RPM depending on if it's standard or automatic ( higher for auto). If that's okay then you may have to play with the idle screws. Turn them both the same amount, 1/4 turn at a time. Turn them once and then rev the engine 2 or 3 times and let it idle down suddenly. You will have to re-adjust the curb idle to keep it at the right spot as well.
If the truck is an automatic, once you have it set up so it runs right then put it in gear and try again although that will probably only need the curb idle adjusted if it stalls. hope this helps.

1990 toyota pickup with 22re engine and 235000 miles failed smog in cali.,not because of emissions but because timing was at 30 degrees instead of 10. It starts and runs well. I have not adjusted timing ....


Reset the engine timing by first jumping pins E1 and Te1 in the grey box under the hood. If the truck runs poorly set to proper timing, your timing chain has jumped a tooth. Does it rattle bad at idle? Id so, the guides are worn out, and the chain is stretched.
