Where is the spout connector located when trying to check the timing on a 1995 ford explorer ?

The spout is located in the front left (drivers) side of the engine compartment. Below is a picture of it's location (marked with a red arrow). Also below is a picture of the spout connector itself. Your timing is not adjustable but per specs, with the shorting bar removed on the connector you should be running at 10 degrees before top dead center (BTDC) Hope this helps.....

Where is the spout connector located on Ford Ranger 1987 2.3L 4 cylinder. and what does it look like.

Hello pennockgaryc: My name is Roger and I will help you. The spout connector will be taped to the wire harness that goes to the distributor module. Will be either grey or black and will be rectangular . This will be a plug that the wire only go to one side. One of the wire that go to the spout connector should be yellow with a dark green tracer. Just pull on the plug and it should pull apart. Set timing to specs of 10 degrees. Reinstall the spout connector and you should be good to go. I tried to send a picture but it was to big for this program. I hope this will be useful. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Where is the location and what is the appearance of the spout connector on 1993 3.0 ranger xlt appears that mine is missing..would this cause engine knocking under acceleration in a high gear ??

The SPOUT connector, if disconnected, would prevent the spark from advancing. So, you would have less spark knock if disconnected. You only disconnect it when you are running a test for codes.
Disconnect the single wire in-line SPOUT connector or remove the shorting bar from the double wire SPOUT connector. (In engine comartment)
The internal circuitry of the ICM will have one of two possible arrangements, push start or computer controlled dwell (CCD). The push start system allows for increased dwell, or coil ON time, when starting the engine. The ICM on this system determines when to turn the coil ON based upon engine rpm information. The coil is then fired, or turned OFF, whenever a rising edge of a SPOUT signal is encountered (Figure 5 ). The SPOUT signal, short for SPark OUTput, is a digital signal generated by the PCM providing spark angle information to the ICM. The SPOUT signal on the push start system controls only the firing of the coil. The falling edge of the SPOUT signal is ignored. The CCD system, however, does use both edges of the SPOUT signal (Figure 6 ). The SPOUT signal for the CCD system is same as in the push start except that the falling edge is now generated to control the time at which the coil is turned ON. The coil ON time, or dwell, for this system is thus entirely controlled by the SPOUT signal. The ICM does not internally determine when to turn the coil ON as it does on the push start system. It responds directly to the SPOUT signal it receives.
In the case that the SPOUT signal line opens from the PCM, the ICM will use the PIP signal to fire the coil. This results in a fixed spark angle of and fixed dwell.
