The timing advance is controlled by the computer,if you have a bad knock sensor it will throw it off also,check to see if there are any codes,you can set the base timing and all should be ok from there,and there is a control module in the distributor but when they go bad the vehicle usually just wont start,hope this helps

Is there more than one modular on a 96 Blazer is one in the distributor


More then one modular ? Module ! Ignition module ? Which engine ? 2.2 L or 4.3 L

2.2 L has no dist.The electronic ignition (EI) system does not use the conventional distributor and coil.

4.3 L Enhanced Ignition System (Overview)
The ignition system initiates combustion by providing a spark to ignite the compressed air and fuel mixture at the correct time. In order to provide an improved engine performance, fuel economy, and control of exhaust emissions, the control module controls the distributor spark advance, or timing, with the ignition control (IC) system.
The ignition system uses a primary and secondary sub system in order to accomplish the timed spark distribution. The primary system consists of a low voltage trigger device which determines the base timing. This signal is modified by the ignition control driver (ICD) module. The signal travels to either or both the engine and transmission processor (control module) for base timing reference. Another signal is sent back to the ignition control driver (ICD) module, which has been adjusted by the control module (advanced or retarded) in order to trigger the coil, according to the requirements of the engine.
The secondary system consists of the ignition coil which has primary, or low voltage, windings and secondary, or high voltage, windings. The secondary side of the ignition coil generates a high voltage which high tension spark plug wires deliver to the spark plugs.
The control module controller now controls the ignition control (IC) and bypass functions.
In order to properly control the ignition and combustion timing, the control module needs to know the following things:
• The crankshaft position
• The engine speed or RPM
• The engine load -- manifold pressure or vacuum
• The atmospheric or barometric pressure
• The engine coolant temperature
• The camshaft position sensor

No module in the distributor

My 1994 cavalier lost spark to cylinders 1 and 4. Which components are directly related to ignition spark and timing? What about the camshaft sensor?


You listed all the components involved in spark timing and control- coil, ignition module, pcm, wires, plugs, crank sensor, and cam sensor.
Cylinders 1 and 4 have the same coil for both, so concentrate on that coil. You still have a good blue spark on cylinders 2 and 3? If you have spark there, I don't know about the cam sensor-I think it would be good if it works at all. You need to check if you have 12 volts power to the coil for 1 and 4.

1994 gmc sierra 1500 timing specs


The timing may be adjusted only on those that are equipped with a conventional distributor ignition. if equipped with the distributorless Electronic Ignition (EI) system, the control module set timing and makes all necessary spark changes. On these systems, the cranksshaft position sensor is mounted in a fixed position, therefore not allowing for adjustment. The HVS system found on some 1995-97 vehicles is also not adjustable.

Where is the wire located to stop automatic timing adjustment on a 1994 GMC 1500 5.7L


Hi:) There is a brown wire with a singal black connector in the wiring harness under the brake booster that goes up behind the engine on the drivers side to the distributor area.You disconnect this wire to disengage the computer timing auto adjustment. Set the timing to 0.deg and turn off engine before reconnecting brown wire. Computer will automaticly set the timing.

How to install a 1992 chevy pickup camshaft sensor 1992 chevy pickup 1500 z71 and where is it located? i have no spark coming from my coil so this is my next task? any other answers?


There isn't a camshaft sensor. The distributor has a control module and a pick up coil inside of it, 1 or both could be bad, it's usually best to replace both. Some parts stores can test them. The is also an Electronic Spark Control Module. I would check the pick up coil and control module.

Timing


Hello Jerry.

The base timing is preset when the engine is made, the position sensors are not movable, so no adjustment is possible. Timing advance and ****** are adjusted through the power train control module (PCM) with ignition control module.
Because the timing changes all the time from various inputs it wouldn't be an accurate reading.

How do you set timing in a 89 Caviler with 2.0 TBI with the ECM. I am tring to get some performance out of the engine. I have converted the car into a UCAR.


This Engine uses a Direct Ignition System (DIS) or Distributorless Ignition to control engine timing advance/******. The Electronic Control Module combined with Electronic Spark Timing (ECM/EST) controls the ignition timing. The ignition timing is preset by the manufacture, and no provisions for adjustments are provided.
