Check engine light on need to know where plug is to check what problem is

Extracting Fault Codes:
Turn the ignition switch ON, OFF, ON, OFF, ON and observe the CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. The CHECK ENGINE LIGHT should begin to flash a series of codes. The flashes will be long and short. The long flashes are the "tens" and the quicker flashes are the "ones" representing the numbers of each code. There will be a slightly longer pause separating each code from the next. A code 55 will be displayed at the end of the test.

3) Step on the break paddle
4) Shift the gear from "P" to "L" 10 times
5) Turn key to " Off" position
6) Now you can start the engine.
7) If doesn't work, you can repeat the procedure.

Hope this tick help

How to check timing belt or set timing belt to the corect time

The timing light connects to the number one spark plug wire. (closest one to you on right side). Than aim light at crankshaft pulley. You will see a tiny arrow next to the crank shaft,
Shine the light with engine running. Point down exactly at arrow. You will see numbers flashing next to arrow on crankshaft. +5 0 -5
You want to arrow to be pointing on 0

Any car that has coil packs and NOT distributor is called distributorless. These cars are self timed by the computer. All the sensors in the car go to the computer. Than the computer adjust timing, fuel release and more.
