Yes there is a way to set the timing on the car. You will need to have a timing light and you need to adjust the distributor. I do recommend taking it to the shop and have them do it for the hours labor. You will know it will be done to the manufactures specks then.

Good Luck

Car was running ruff. missing and had no power. replaced plugs and wires that didnt fix it. then i pulled the wires one at a time from the coil pack and the #4 wasnt firing. so i replaced the coil and it...


with electronics the problem is when you fix one weakness in the curcuit it will go to the next.. the best thing you can do if its the ignition system causeing the problem is replace as much as you can afford, also having a clean fuel and air filter will help it run nicely

I had this problem too exept I have no clue what parts or blah b;ah blah. I just know that my coil pack was getting fried.burnt out because my wires were bad. The mechanic I went to was a moron because I took the car to him 3 times and he kept saying it was the coil ad kept replacing it. I took it to my uncle and he said my wires were in horrible shape and when this is the problem it fries your coil making your car run like a lawn mower! Well all i did was replace my wires and the car ran great! Well I hope this helped..
