You can still check the timing marks with an old style gun, but i would check the compression on all cylynders and make sure the plug wires are in order at the plugs and the cap also..some folks forget which order they go in when they completely remove everything at one time...set number one and see w if maks line up

How do I reset the lock on my factory stereo for a 2005 Chevy impala.?

This is a long explanation, but a link to do it is provided below. First disconnect battery put it back. Turn on car, press an hold 1an 2 buttons for about 10 seconds or so, 3 digits will appear, write them down, press am/fm button, 3 more digits appear, write them down. Now with those numbers call the GM automated line number. 800-537-5140. You will be asked which brand you own. Chevy I think is 1pontiac is 2 or something like this. Get it right or it will not work. After you enter the brand number press # key. Then enter you numbers you wrote down followed by the # key. You will be given a 4 digit number write it down. Go to car press the clock hours button an enter the first 2 numbers as hours, then press minutes button an enter last 2 difits as minutes. Then press AM/FM on radio, it should read SEC for sucess. Then turn on car radio simple but you mus do it right. Dont worry about phone number it is just an automated line an cost nothing.

I have a 06 G6 GTP 3.9 The motor was recently taken out&put in and now the back three cylinders are not hittin the coil is firing and the plugs and wires are and all the grounds and sensors are pluged...

It would probably help us a little if the sentence structure of your question were written better and clearer. I know nobody is perfect, but it's far from that. there are three coils back there... describe 'not hitting'

95 nissan sentra 1.6L, air fuel mixture adjustment. If adjustment screw is turned completely in how many turns out to proper setting?

1.5 turns for most carbs, but you can use a vacuum gage on the intake to get it right. Make sure engine is warm and on the regular idle screw, then turn the mixture screw in and then turn out until vacuum stops rising. OK?

Check the plug in the cilinder that is missing for oil or carbon deposits, it may be the valves not closing tight.

I would have the compression on all cilinders checked and the fuel injectors cleaned and tested by a pro.

Good luck bud

Pull the dipstick 2 c if the water is mixing with oil,if not check all hoses for cracks & do the same for the rad. plastic end caps hopefully it's not ur intake leaking--pull the plug wires 1 by 1 while running 2 see if all are hittin'----- the 1 u find not hittin' look in the end 2 make sure there is no dry white powder in it diluting your spark if not do the same at the distributor end---next pull the dist.cap & check the contacts for each cylinder I GUARANTEE them needing 2 be scraped with a flathead screwdriverpull the spark plug & look for moisture or foulness

Sounds like the engine can't breath,
make sure pcv valve is good,or oil cap is vented.
your engine is building up pressure and has no where to vent,so it blows the easiest thing,the dip stick
