Step1 First step is to open your hood on your vehicle and locate the distributor. Step2 Next loosen your distributor just enough that it will turn from side to side with some resistance. Step3After Loosening the distributor take a piece of chalk and mark on theharmonic balancer the timing mark so it can be seen easily. Step4Then take the timing light and connect it to the battery and the Numberone spark plug wire. Then have your helper start the vehicle while youshine the timing light on the harmonic balance and the timing mark onthe timing chaintiming degree nissan sentra - mag-glass_10x10.gif cover. Step5The Timing Light will illuminate the mark on the harmonic balancer whenthe Number one cylinder is firing. The mark should correspond to thetiming mark on the timing chain cover. You can then adjust the timingforward or backwards by rotating the distributor ever so slightly. Step6 When you have the timing where you want it then shut off the engine and carefully tighten back down the distributor without moving it.

Timing belt


This Nissan should have a timing chain instead of a timing belt. I suggest taking it to a shop and letting a professional look at it. I have had a 98sx chain slip 180 degrees often.

WHAT IS THE PROPER TIMING ON A NISSAN 2400 1992


whyknot87: As far as I know, Nissan did not put a 2400 in a Sentra in 1992 or for that matter any year that I am aware of.
The Sentra had an SR20DE Which was a dual overhead cam engine.
According to Nissan, setting the timing on this engine requires the use of a scan tool as part of the procedure. There is no procedure for setting it without a scann tool.
The timing for this engine is 15 dedrees +/- 2 degrees @700RPM

The other engine this year Sentra used was a GA16DE
which was also a dual overhead cam engine.
This one could be set in a conventional manner with a regular timing light. You must have the engine at normal operating temp.
Disconnect the throttle switch and then you set the timing to
10 degrees +/_ 2 degrees @700RPM

The 2400 engine you probably are referring to is the KA24DE which came in Nissan 240SX and the Nissan Stanza. There are procedures for setting these as well, however I need to know wha4t car and engine you have?
The 2400 had 15 degrees +/- 2 degrees @700RPM
