SOURCE: timing degree nissan sentra

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 chainmag-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.

1999 Nissan Sentra 1.6L sets p0304 code


check that your spark plug wires are all secured tight. the far right cylinder is giving you the issue, cylinder #4. Is the engine light flashing while the car is running? if it isnt flashing, then its a past code and isnt misfiring anymore. if the engine light is flashing, you either have a bad plug wire, or a bad ignition coil/distributor.

The owners manual says for setting the timing is at 8 degrees,When using the timing light, What mark is 8 degrees?


The engine turns clockwise, the first mark is tdc (top dead centre) and the second mark is preset at 8 degrees so when using a timing light line up the second mark on the pulley with the fixed mark on the timing cover at idle

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

1986 Lincoln Town car 5.0 intermittent stalling problem, usually while driving. fuel pump?..please advise! Thx! My 1986 lincoln town car has a intermittent stalling problem. ive taken it to a mechanic a few times and have had a full tune up done, the MAP sensor replaced and the idol reset to manufacture specifications. i also replaced the fuel filter, air filter, ignition control module, and fuel pump relay i found under the hood. i also have sprayed some wd40 in the idol control valve throttle plate area or whatever its called and wiped out any carbon around there (were the plastic air filter thing connects to the motor) my fuel pump has this high pitch buzz in the back of the car the whole time the engines running including while driving. Now it idols smooth, drives smooth initially. the fuel pressure reads 40 psi. i personally think something is heating up though, not sure if its the fuel pump or what. but my reason for thinking somethings heating up is the engine instantly shuts off after a certain amount of driving and parking has been done for the day, itll start back up if i let it sit 15mins or more, but will stall out again unless i let it sit overnight. Then i can drive and park it for the same time frame as the day before, before it will shut off again, usually while driving. it does this after the exact amount of time driving / parking has past pretty much exactly give or take 10 mins. heres how it goes from cold start, begining of day. ill start it up, idols fine, drives smooth no jerks or anything. ill drive it 25 mins park it engine off 15 mins drive it 10 mins park engine off 10 mins drive 10 mins (at this point i can feel random slight jerks occasionally while driving this point onward) park engine off 2 hours drive 10 mins (random jerks here too, usually this happens 90% 5 mins before the motor randomly shuts off, like a warning sign) park engine off 1 hour 30 mins drive 10 mins, ( at this point the engine will literally just shut off while im driving, usually going 35mph-45mh, ill feel/hear it not running anymore, the radio and power is still on, the brakes are harder to press, ill then coast into a parking lot.) if it doesnt stall then, ill park somewere and it wont turn over, itll just choke. Only way for me to be able to drive it again is to let it sit for about 4ish hours or over night. Then i can repeat the steps above, and without fail, the motor shuts off or wont start when i get to the end of those steps and do them exactly as before. which makes me think something is heating up. i just dont know what. Please advise, anyone :c
