How do i replace the timing after changing the distibutor?


According to nissan owners club online, you only have to hook up the timing light and adjust it. I think it is set at 15 degrees but check the sticker on the hood.

How Do I Set the timing on 2001 Nissan Quest ? is there a Vacuum advance ?


the timing is controlled by the engine computer. You only set the base timing at 15 degrees by loosening the distributor hold down bolt and turning the distributor until the timing light shows on the 15 degree mark on the crank pulley.

Give me some tips in adjusting the timing without


If the idle adjustment screw has NOT been touched or adjusted, turn the distributor slightly in either a counter clock wise or clockwise rotation until the recommended idle RPM is reached. This should get you within the ball park. The only correct way to set the timing for optimum engine performance is to use a timing light.

My 97 Nissan Quest runs to around 115000 miles in good shape, should I have to replace timing belt now? If I don't replace it now and if the timing belt is broken, will it damage the engine? Thanks, Frank


You should have the timing belt replaced right away. You're vehicles mileage is right on time for it. Not doing so could cause catastrophic engine failure. Then you're looking at $1000's.

Set timing after replacing distributor


Ignition Timing
  1. sxv~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Parking brake control should be applied.
    Depress the parking brake pedal, and warm the engine to the normal operating temperature.
  2. Turn off all electrical loads.
  3. Start the engine and rev it to 2000-3000 rpm two or three times and allow the engine to return to the idle.
  4. Check the idle speed. The idle speed should be between 700-800 rpm in PARK (P) or NEUTRAL (N) position.
  5. NOTE: Make sure that the timing pointer is pointing to the 15° Before Top Dead Center (BTDC) mark on the crankshaft pulley. Each notch on the crankshaft pulley represents 5 degrees.
    Check the ignition timing with a timing light.
  6. If the marks are not aligned, loosen the distributor bolt and turn the distributor to make the adjustment. The ignition timing should be between 13°-17° BTDC.
