SOURCE: set timing 1997 jimmy

Ok that's pretty simple Put cylinder # 1 on TDC= top dead center on the (compressionstroke piston all the way up). Mark on metal part of distributor (with marker) where the number one is on the cap( that's where the number 1 wire plugs in) Then in-plant distributor make sure that rotor point is pointed to #1 on the cap, turn distributor shaft until this is achieved or as close as possible try to center shaft so you can adjust... ****** or advance to fine tune after you in-plant distributor if needed. Contact if you need more help . Good Luck

Rough idle and alot of carbon out exhaust pipe, 1993 gmc jimmy


You need new egr valve gasket with a screen on it. It will block carbon from clogging it causing rough idle. Need 10mm wrech and socket set. I found the part at napa for around 22 bucks. I have had my 93 4x4 Jimmy for 10 yrs it now has 235000 on it and still going.

Hard start when cold/first start in morning


The pressure relief valve is in the spider fuel injector not the fuel pump. We have had our 94 gmc jimmy for 4 years & have had to replace the fuel injector 4 times which cost right at $500 each time for the part. Yes the spider fuel injector cost averages around $500.
