Question about 1984 Toyota Corolla
I have just replaced timing belt in my 1984 corolla sr5. I have literally set everything i can think of to where it should, in theory, be. The cam pulley is at 0, the crank is at -5 btdc as spec'd by my manual, and the dizzy is set to fire on the number 1 plug. Everything is lined up before, and AFTER i run the car, but when i run it, my timing light shows that it is WAY off and the number 1 plug is firing at something like -30 btdc. But as soon as i shut the car off and recheck everything, its all still lined up. I am at my whits end, as I am new to mechanic stuff, and was really hoping this would all turn out well. If anyone has ANY ideas, PLEASE let me know asap. Thanks.
Do to federal regulations,emissions have to be keep at minimum.Modern cars have a computer that's sets the firing timing to control this. If your rpms are ok, then don't pay attention to it.
