Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser
I want to check/set the timing and want to know what it should be? I understand that this car came with the chevy 305 engine when it was built.
Also wondering if a sloppy timing chain can make the car pulsate mildly when driving? If you excelerate firmly its strong but if you drive constant it seems to pulsate slightly and it drives me crazy.
Actually.....the 5.0 in the 92 Olds Custom Cruiser is a 307 CI 5.0 L engine believe it or not....The Caprice had a 305 CI 5.0 L engine. There is very little difference, but I have one as well and I found that out through the local dealer. The pulsation you feel when driving sounds like a transmission problem to me, but I think it could be from the timing chain issue. I do not know the timing setting for the car, but maybe this will help you to find it. I would try to make sure which motor you actually have first, the 305 or the 307, and then ask the mechanic at the local dealer what the setting should be.
