Or your timing is severely out or very worn distributor internals being a 94 it won't have cam or crank sensors having a distributor the knock sensor that advances the timing is in the distributor and this is what advances the timing when engine is under a load calling for advanced timing would start there pull cap and check play in shaft and rotor

More then likely the crank pisition sensor

Bellhueycobra@msn.comi cant read the marks onthe timing plate as they are worn off 94 s10 4,3 what are they


also keep this in mind when setting the 4.3 if its the vortec Set timing under the following conditions:

* Normal operating temperature.
* Air cleaner installed.
* A/C "OFF."
* Transmission in neutral.
* Disconnect SET TIMING connector.

The location of the set timing connector is inside the cab where the heater box and the carpet meet on the passenger side floor. Pull carpet back to expose the single wire and connectors on the outside of the control module harness. The wire colors are tan with a black stripe. DO NOT disconnect 4 wire connector at distributor. (connector is sometimes found hanging right in front of the blower motor)

Connect timing light and adjust as necessary by loosening hold down bolt and rotating distributor. Tighten hold down and recheck the timing. Stop the engine and connect SET TIMING connector. Clear control module trouble code by disconnecting control module power source. With engine at operating temperature, drive vehicle at part throttle with moderate acceleration and decelerate to idle condition. This will "teach" the control module and return the engine to normal performance.

How do I set the timing on a new engine?I installed a rebuilt 4.3L W type and cant get it to fire.Do I Have to disconnect a wire to time it?


Hi there is a tan/black wire it should be just above the carpet on the passenger side of the truck. you will need to disconnect this and set the timing then reconnect it and clear the timing code. If this motor will not fire you may want to check and make sure the distributor is set in and timed right. the rotor on these motors dont point at the number one spot on the cap.

Timing a 92 chevy s10


The tan colored wire with a black stripe is located either breaking out of the wire harness near the distributor, or under the carpet on the passenger side floor, (look up towards the top right hand corner, and you might also have to remove the kick panel to see it if it got stuffed behind the kick panel).

It is a Tan colored wire with a Black stripe, and it will usually have a unique black connector.

You will know it is the right wire because when it is dis-connected at the connector the idle and timing will change, and the check-engine light will come on.

Set the timing where you want it to be, then turn off the ignition and re-connect the wire to the electronic timing control. Re-start the vehicle and the check-engine light should go out, that is of course if it was not already on before because of another problem.

You can re-set the check-engine light by dis-connecting the battery ground for three minutes.

I am having trouble setting the timing on a 262(4.3l)chevy vortec engine 1995


You have to put the Ignition Control (IC) system in the bypass mode by disconnecting the "set timing" connector. This is a single wire sealed connector that has a tan with black striped lead. The location of the "set timing" connector with a Powertrain Control Module (PCM) controller is near the PCM connectors in the passenger compartment. Unplug connector (tan/black stripe) start engine set timing to 0 TDC, TURN OFF ENGINE, re-connect timing connector

93 chevy 1500 v6 keeps dying out.


Connect a voltmeter set on ac volts to the pickup coil wires (disconnected from the module) and crank the engine.

2. The pick-up coil output should be more than 0.7v AC. If not, replace the pick up coil and distributor shaft.

3. Visually inspect the condition of the magnet on top of the distributor shaft to be in good condition. If not, replace the distributor

1. Disconnect the set timing connector or ground the Tan/Black bypass wire.

2. The check engine light should come on and code 42 should set.

3. If the engine stops stalling, disconnect the pick up coil connector at the Ignition Control Module (ICM).

4. Check acv output from the pick up coil while cranking the engine at a normal cranking speed.

5. If output is less than 700 mv replace the distributor shaft with a new one.
