First clean the balancer and find the timing mark, mark it clearly with a chalk ,or crayon, or liquid paper, 10 degrees BTDC. Get the engine warm, now remove the timing connector ( Its a little gray plastic connector near the distributor, its 2 pins) disconnect that , then start the engine and set the timing. Tighten the distributor, Check it again, if ok, turn eng off and reconnect the timing connector. you are done.

Was running ok then left and pulled into driveway,shut off next morning would not start tries to start acts like its out of gas,replaced a blown fuse but dont know what the fuse was to dont know how to set...


You need to start with the basic's, you need spark, fuel and compression for a engine to run and timing. So tell us a little about your vehicle, most newer vehicles dont have a distributor so timing problems are limited, fuel is easy to check if it is port fuel injected, if replaceing the blown fuse didnt help it is most likely not related.

My car engine is cranking but its not starting,the battery is ok and the starter.I also checked the fuel pump its working fine.What could be the problem sir?Please help


check for spark. use an inductive timing light on a plug wire while your trying to start the car and see if you have spark. if you do the next place to check is the fuel system. it it getting to the cylinders. just because the fuel pump works doesnt mean it is pumping fuel to the motor esp if fuel injected which requires a pretty high pressure of fuel delivery compared to mechanical fuel pumps. get back with me after you have checked these two items if it still wont fire or run. good luck. remember dont open up the fuel system and have any exposed fuel while trying to start the motor. very high risk of fire or explosion with this combination.

My car runs good but cuts off while im


There are a lot of things, but one of the most over looked items is the fuel filter. If it is old and full the car will idle fine but cut out as you accelerate.

Try that with an induction fuel injection clean. If you have any check engine lights on, have that check to see what it is saying.

Hope this helps
