Timing adjustment for a 1987 buck century estate wagon 3.8 liter v-6

On older vehicles... loosen the bolt holding the distributer and turn a little clockwise or counter clockwise. If you have a timing light plug it into the spark plug wire of the #1 cylinder and look for the timing marks on the front of the harmonic balancer. But you could just wing it without a light.

I have a 1987 gmc jimmy with a 5.7 litre fuel injection and it seems to be lack air or has to much i dnt know . and i want to know how to adjust my fuel air mixture

Unfortunately, most fuel injection engines don't have an adjustable fuel/air mixture by the technician.

The fuel/air mixture is controlled by a computer.

1987 gmc s15 2.8 litre. Clutch only goes half way

I don't know that specific vehicle, but if its a hydraulic clutch it sounds like either you have a leak and your clutch fluid is low, or the master or slave cylinder could be bypassing internally. Check the fluid level in your clutch master cylinder. If its low, you should top it off with brake fluid and will probably have to bleed the system. Also look for leaks. You can probably find info or a video online of how to bleed the system. Its a bit hard to explain without illustrations or pictures. Not really very difficult to perform. Good luck.

Cap and wire diagram 4.3 gmc

I can't send you a diagram but I can give you the info. From the front of the truck #1 plug wire goes at 6 o'clock. The firing order is1-6-5-4-3-2 and the wires go on clockwise from 6 o'clock. The odd number pistons are on the driver's side and the even ones are on the passenger side. Hope this helps.

Where is the wire that controls tach in 1987 Camaro?

If you have the one I'm thinking of, it is just to the left of the main power terminal on the cap (usually marked tach)

I have hesitation on my 95\gmc \Pickup\ 5.0 Litre

you need three things for you engine to work right.Air fuel and spark. The timing could be off,the fuel filter may need to be changed,and your throttle body could need cleaning.
