Hi some of them have a belt but yours being the M43 engine is a chain, the only thing to listen for with them is chain slap or an rattling around the chain area, a bit of research on the M43 engine also shows that the chain should be changed after 100000 miles as they become weak, Just joined here and found this unsolved i know its a bit late but hope the extra info helps

The wire is either at the firewall under the black cover with the three plactic nuts. Or its under the passenger carpet all the way above the passenger feet. Or its right in the corner between glove box and door. If its never been touched it should be wraped and held in place with tape.
The wire is brown. Also if you want to bypass that what we do is goose the engine. For a split second the timing will drop to 0 if you do a quick 1500 rpm goose.
At idle with the wire hooked up about 16 to 18 degrees is normal. As soon as you unhook the wire it should drop to 0

The temperature sensor is where I would start. If the sensor tell the computer that the engine is cold it will initiate the warm up mode which includes advancing the timing along with a rich fuel mixture. Unfortunately, there are many sensors that assist in controlling timing and fuel mixtures that it is difficult for me to give you a guaranteed solution.
