Question about 1992 Chevrolet S-10
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
