Hi im david i have a mazda 323 1989 1.5b5 engin.ive had it in two garages and two autoelectric and they cant fix is now 32 deg out of it''s timing with top vacum hose off but is running fine how can...

David, I've found that if the Ignition timing is off considerably & the engine is running, then usually the engines Valve timing is off somewhat & it is compensating.

I would suggest verifying that the Valve Timing is correct first then go to the Distributor to verify that when the engine is at TDC, the distributor rotor is pointing at the #1 spark plug wire on the dist cap.

Beyoond that and maybe first even, make sure the exhaust isn't restricted, that causes the engine to run under completely different circumstances & alters every vacuum setting you will see.

Hope that this leads you in the right direction.

good luck

We changed spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, distributor button, etc. We unbolted the entire distributor assembly and pulled it out from the engine. We now can't get the car to start or run. How do I...

Does "entire distributor aseembly" include the metal gear shaft??
If so, you must remove the distributor again and re-insert it in the proper gear groove.
Normally, you "mark" the distributor and the engine with a marker before you remove the shaft so that you can replace it so the gears mesh in the correct position.

You can use "trial and error" to reposition the distributor or you can:

1. Turn the engine to the "Top Dead Center" (TDC) position so that the distributor rotor points to the #1 cylinder sparkplug wire.
2. The rotor on the distributor shafdt should be positioned to "point" to the #1 sparkplug wire.
3. Re-insert the distributor gear shaft.

Please comment if you need better detail...

For 1.3 1994 ford aspire, the timing and procedure

Please rate as fixya if this helps. Ignition Timing Check and adjust the ignition timing using the following procedure:
  1. Start the engine and allow it to warm up to normal operating temperature.
  1. Shut off all of the accessories.
  1. Connect Rotunda Timing Analyzer 164-R0257 or equivalent.
  1. Using a jumper, ground the self-test input (STI) terminal at the data link connector (DLC).


  1. Check the base ignition timing. The yellow ignition timing mark should line up with the pointer on the timing belt cover.


  1. If the timing marks do not line up, continue with the following steps.
  1. Loosen the distributor bolts.
  1. Rotate the distributor (12127) until the timing marks are properly aligned.


  1. Tighten the distributor bolts to 19-25 Nm (14-19 lb-ft).
  1. Check the timing marks to ensure they did not move when the distributor bolts were tightened.
  1. Remove the jumper from the STI terminal at the DLC.
  1. Remove the Rotunda Timing Analyzer 164-R0257 or equivalent.
