I am confused by timing degrees. what i need to know does the timing light need to be at 0 to show tdc or are there different degree for different cars?


on your vehicle you just need to know that you align the timing marks together... this is typically at 0 degrees... that may be confusing you is the idea of "ignition" timing which on this vehicle is not adjustable....

AGAIN... just align you timing marks and you are cool

Set the timing on a1994 toyota 22r-e


If this vehicle has a rotor assembly then you will need a timing light and a wrench to loosen the lockdown bolts for the rotor assembly. Connect the timing light as directed for the light. The number 1 cylinder will be at the front of the engine. On the harmonic balancer, the main pulley at the bottom front of the engine, you'll need to clean the pulley to find the timing mark. You should also see a tab which has tick marks and numbers on it. You may want to mark the timing mark on the pulley with white chalk so it stands out better. Loosen the locking bolts for the distributor just enough you can turn it with a little force then start the engine. Check the timing by pointing the timing light at the marked area and tab that has timing marks. Make sure you can see the mark in the flash of the light. You want to wait 5 or 10 minutes after starting the vehicle to allow it to warm up, make sure you have the Heater and AC turned off. Check the timing and make sure you are between 8 and 10 degrees on the marks. You may have to estimate this. Turn the vehicle off. It should shut right off, if it acts up or continues to run turn the ignition back to run and adjust it a little more. Continue to do this till the engine shuts off when your turn the ignition off and starts right back up. If you have any questions about anything or any procedure I've given you I recommend you get the Haynes Repair Manual on your vehicle which will have photos you can use as a reference.

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.
