Question about 1997 Jeep Tj
I know that the computer controls the timing on this engine and i haveheard before that turning the distributor will not have any effect on thetiming.I have installed the dist at tdc all plugs are correct and thejeep runs very well just curious as to why when I turn the dist. Theengine will die or bog out. I thought that the comp controlled this.Does the position of the dist matter?
It does matter. The advance unit is affected by the position of the distributer.In engines with no distributer (visible) is totally run by the PCU.
