The distributor is one tooth out , remove it and advance by one tooth and reset timing.

    Thanks Stan, sorry I've taken so long to get back to you. I've only just managed to get to re-setting the distributor. It worked, once again Thank-you.

SOURCE: nissan navara 2006 blown hole no1 piston 16000kms

do you have a hole in the piston or gasket? If in the piston it is most likely from coolant or water. If water, could be a cracked head, or being sucked in through the intake and building up in the 6th cyl. I have a lexus that had a hole in the side of the motor and noon could figure out why. I pulled the head and found water... Put new block in and egr codes came up. Pulled EGR and found it was sucking in water, due to an exhaust leak that was allowing condensation to build and would not blow out once in the egr tube. If you face the same problem (hole in block) I am going to say too much compression. Could be from head gasket not being torqued properly and leaking cooland, cracked head, or wrong spark plugs-and worst case scenario which I have yet to witness, bad spark plug gap. Not likely on your car, i would think.

SOURCE: We pulled and replaced spark plugs and

It started without the distributor cap? That is impossible. I suspect you may have plug wires mixed up. Make sure it is wired as the diagram shows. Also replace the rotor. clay58_39.png

SOURCE: how do I refit the distributor on a 5 cyl 2.5i m/bus and make sure the timing is correct

The tdc needs to be on (compression stroke)you can use a compression gauge to judge compression stroke.or the old school way I do is take out #1 plug and put finger over plug hole in head,let someone bump the starter until the compression blows your finger away from hole. Roll engine by hand.(socket and breaker bar on crank bolt if needed) slowly clockwise to Line up marks. Install distributer with button pointing toward #1 prong in cap.

How install distributor chevy 5.7 1998


bring no1 piston to TDC firing on the timing mark on the balancer and line the rotor button point to under no1 plug lead and place the distributor in the block . As it goes in the rotor will turn out of position so lift up the distributor until you can reposition the rotor just forward of the position so that when the distributor is full in the rotor lines up with no1 plug lead. The movement is from the helix on the drive gears and you have to compensate for that when positioning the rotor button.. leave the retaining clamp just loose enough to turn the body of the distributor . After fitting all the leads in the correct firing order . start the engine and using a timing light move the distributor body until you get the timing mark on the required degrees advanced ( normally around 12 ) and then lock up the clamp.

1983 nissan 280 zx car back fires when cold


Sounds like you could have an aux air regulator valve, that is not working when it will not work; there is no fast idle cold. Should be around 1500 rpm cold, the car will stall out and pop through the intake when bad. You have a digital volt meter to do some testing with to make sure the mass air flow is working correctly.

Also, c
heck the plugs for how they're burning, check the air filter for good flow, do a compression test and judge from there. Intake backfire is usually caused by running lean or improper timing.

For the 79 model zx, ignition timing was 10 degrees BTDC @ 700rpm
For 80 and up zx, non turbo - 8 degrees BTDC +- 2 degrees @ 700rpm
turbo - 20 degrees BTDC +- 3 degrees @ 700 rpm

Also done with distributor vacuum advance hose removed and plugged.
NOTE:
* BTDC = Before Top Dead Center
* + - = Plus or minus
Hope thos helps; keep us updated.

Changed plugs, plug wires, distributor, and rotor. Grounded neg wire for battery. Engine still missing.Not a fuel injection miss, but a miss you'd associate with plugs etc.


Did you check the ignition timing ? It should be for manual transmission 20+/- 2 deg BTDC

automatic transmission 20+/- deg BTDC

FYI---One time i dropped a new plug before i put it in and did not realize that the gap have closed up and started a bad miss..make sure all plugs are gaped correctly....could be something else but you can start here...Hope this helped ?

I can find the timing mark I need riset the time on nissan pickup 1986 2wd


Hi,
the timing mark is usually a white painted groove on the main fan belt pulley.
Look for another plate with a a couple of lines or grooves mounted on the engine block right behind the fan belt pulley wheel.
Assuming you have hooked up your timing light per the instructions...When you shine your timing light at this area you are looking to see if the pulley mark lines up with the timing mark on the engine block plate when the engine is at a specific idling speed and the distributor is adjusted to make the timing mark line up when cylinder 1 is firing.
The engine block plate is often marked as 6 deggrees BTDC (before top dead centre). The middle mark is usually top dead centre. (the timing figure could be anything eg 8 deg BTDC..I am just usually an example figure)
