Timing a 92 chevy s10

I need to pass smog but the timing on my 92 chevy s10 is off and i some sort of instructions on how to get this back to factory settings. I can't locate the plug that i am supposed to disconnect in order to time it correctly. I have looked everywhere under my carpet but I don't have any wires running under there. My truck is a stick shift, I don't know if that makes a difference or not? I really need to get this because my tags are expired and I don't have much money. Please help!!

The tan colored wire with a black stripe is located either breaking out of the wire harness near the distributor, or under the carpet on the passenger side floor, (look up towards the top right hand corner, and you might also have to remove the kick panel to see it if it got stuffed behind the kick panel).

It is a Tan colored wire with a Black stripe, and it will usually have a unique black connector.

You will know it is the right wire because when it is dis-connected at the connector the idle and timing will change, and the check-engine light will come on.

Set the timing where you want it to be, then turn off the ignition and re-connect the wire to the electronic timing control. Re-start the vehicle and the check-engine light should go out, that is of course if it was not already on before because of another problem.

You can re-set the check-engine light by dis-connecting the battery ground for three minutes.

To time nothing has to be disconnected such as older cars with points and a condenser. Time it at 8 degress before top dead center

92 chevy s10 4x4 4.3L manual transmission no 3rd gear


Hi:

Your transmission has 3 shift rails...
1st - 2nd
3rd -4th
5th- Reverse

If your 3rd gear doesn't work , you have an internal transmission problem, such as a syncronizer, or similar fail... There is not much you can fix, without removeing the transmission.

S10 Blazer 4.3 to a 350 FI


If you live in a state with smog license requirements your wasting your time, the engine has to meet EPA requirements for the year vehicle was manufactured your car is considered a clunker good luck getting it smogged. And it is no big deal to change. 350 is almost identical to 4.3 just some variations.

Failed smog


We had to have the calatic converter replaced. We did this after doing an oil change, air filter change, and new spark plugs and still hadn't passed smog. After changing the calatic converter it passed smog with scores of 25.

I'm in the process of buying a 1984 Chevy S 10 with the small 6 cylinder. It won't pass smog. It seems to be starving for fuel upon acceleration. It does not seem to be running rich at any time during RPM...


If you add 3oz of acetone per 10gal of fuel if the readings were close to passing it should get you there, BUT you will have to test components to find what is malfunctioning. Could be anything from incorrect timing to (name something).There's no magic fixs.

What does my 77 gmc K20 need to pass CA smog


As far as I know. Anything 1994 and under don't have to go through emissions anymore, just safety. But, like countrysi248 said, it might depend on what state you live in. Best wishes to ya.

Failed Smog Test Close to CA-HC Limits


You can try some over the counter solutions per say. Some of the mechanics in a bottle. They sell some products This will probably be the cheapest router. If this doesn't work then you need repairs.

Pass your emissions test.
