98 chevy truck 350 engine 93K miles when starting sometimes the engine will backfire..could be cold or hot engine..but after it runs for a couple of minutes will run fine..


A backfire usually indicates a timing issue. I recommend a minor tune up, which will include new plugs and wires, as well as checking/setting the distributor timing. An oil change is also recommended after the issue is corrected, as offset timing can cause fuel to remain in cylinder, which then bleeds past the piston rings and ends up in the crankcase with the engine oil.

How do i set the timing on my 98 chevy 350 vortec


You actually can't advance or retard timing on your truck without pulling the timing gears off and manually doing it. however, if you adjust too far you can cause severe damage internal damage to your engine. and the computer is going to try to automatically adjust for whatever adjustment you make. If your question is provoked by a poorly timed engine, ie its running poorly, then i would suggest replacing your timing chain and I always replace the tensioner while i am there as it isn't the easiest thing to do. if you need to know the proper timing let me know.

Settong the timing on a 350 small block.


On that set up the computer mainly sets your timing. It reads the timing off of the crank sensor, cam sensor, it tells the injectors and coil packs what to do.
