The timing light is used only to see if you installed correctly, crank & cam have aero marks make sure when you align those aeros they stay on position when you tight the tension they might move so set it a little off counterclockwise so when you tight it it will come to the right position hope this helps you.

How to set timing 1988 plymouth reliant


You should check a repair book for the details, but the general method is to use a timing light to align the marks. The marks are on the flywheel and the scale is in an access hole in the transaxle.
I think you have to unplug the coolant temp sensor to put the system in test mode but I'm not sure on that.

How do I set timing or where are the marks sposed to be


You really cannot set the timing because your ECM controls ignition timing as well as the RPM's through many different sensors. Below is a desciption of the system as well the method to check the timing and where the marks are at and the chart of what the specifications should be at. Also is the over all check to narrow down if anything is off step by step per the factory service manual. I wasn't sure what size engine you had so I went with the most common one for that year (2.5 liter) You can only post up to 150KB per picture so I made it as big as I could. There are procedures you can do to "teach" your ECM/computer how to idle as well as adjust air/fuel mixture which will change the way it runs if the sensors are working correctly. If you cannot see this because it is to small, you would like those relearn/teaching procedures or if you have the 3.5 liter engine feel free to write me at csautomotivecars@att.net and I will be happy to send any information that you need. Even have procedures on checking different sensors and wiring diagrams that come in handy. Is your "check engine" light on? I ask because you would need to correct whatever the problem is in order to get a good reading from anything as your ECM will try to adjust things just to make it run better until you can fix the problem. I hope this helps and good luck.
