Rebuild a 3.9 Dodge Dakota engine runs great except it running high on food and lack of power what is wrong


Check your base timing, it may be retarded too much. Base timing is usually on the order of a few degrees BTDC, it is without engine computer input which can advance the timing over a wide range. Follow manufacturer's procedure for setting or adjusting base timing. It may be shown on the VECI label or sticker under the hood.

High on...what? Food? lol, you're feeding it too much. Check for trouble codes, maybe it is running rich.

What is the course of late firing


Late firing or retardant ignition is the condition caused by incorrect ignition timing. Ignition timing is a setpoint established by the engineers as the optimum setting for ignition efficiency. This setting is a few degrees before TDC or top dead center. TDC is the point on 360 degree scale at 0 . This indicates the #1 cylinder has its piston travel at the top
Limit of the stroke. If your condition has firing occurring after the few degrees Before TDC then this can be called late firing. You have a timing issue.

I have a 1995 GMC sierra, 305/4l60e, I have been troubleshooting a running lean problem, finally got obd 1 software, all sensors are working in parameters, but I am losing my timing advance, my knock...


Your "knock sensor" kicks in??? That means there must be a knock detected and the engine is doing what it is supposed to do. How do you know your timing is 4-6 degrees at 60 mph?

What is the timing setting for 2000 chevrolet pick up 5.7 L


You cannot adjust ignition timing on the 5.7 liter V8 vortec engine. This system uses the distributor as a camshaft position sensor. You can loosen the distributor and rotate it, but it adjusts something called Camshaft Retard Offset. This can only be checked and adjusted using a scan tool that can read the cam retard offset parameter. Otherwise, you\'re flying blind. If you have a scan tool that can read it, the retard offset should be set to 0 degrees with the engine fully warmed up and running at 1000 rpm. If you cannot adjust it to 0 degrees, the distributor may be off a tooth or two, and will need to be correctly re-timed to the engine.

We have a 350 chevy with a two ballel carb,this is in a pure stock car we drive at are local track the problem is it back fire when i let off the gas. runs well all the time other when i let off it what...


Check engine timing, it sounds like it is retarded-if you advance the timing just up to the point that it knocks (warmed up, under load) and set it back 2-3 degrees it should not pop through the exhaust, if it pops through the intake you may have a valve issue (weak spring, leaking valve).

Hello i have a 1993 chevrolet silverado 1500 and i jus replaced the fuel pump and the distributor and now it wont stay running and it back fires can u tell wat might be wrong


Hello theman022002,

Your description would indicate that the timing is off. Possibly when you installed the new distributor you were off a tooth or two. Turning the distributor Will Not adjust the timing.

You will need to reinstall the distributor with every thing set to top dead center, then follow the steps below to set the proper cam retard offset.

Good Luck.

Ignition Timing: Adjustments

TEST PROCEDURE
The ignition timing cannot be adjusted. The distributor may need adjusting to prevent crossfire. To insure proper alignment of the distributor, perform the following:

1. With the ignition OFF, connect the scan tool.
2. Start the engine. Allow the engine to idle until the engine reaches normal operating temperature.

IMPORTANT: Cam retard Offset reading will not be accurate below 1,000 RPM.

3. Increase engine speed to 1,000 RPM while performing the following steps.
4. Use the scan tool in order to monitor the Cam retard Offset.
5. If the Cam retard indicates a value of 0 degrees, the distributor is properly adjusted.
6. If the Cam retard does not indicate 0 degrees, the distributor must be adjusted.

ADJUSTING PROCEDURE
1. With the engine OFF, slightly loosen the distributor hold down bolt.

IMPORTANT: Cam retard Offset reading will not be accurate below 1,000 RPM.

2. Start the engine and raise the engine speed to 1,000 RPM.
3. Use the scan tool in order to monitor the Cam retard Offset.
4. Rotate the distributor as follows:
a. To compensate for a negative reading, rotate the distributor in the counterclockwise direction.
b. To compensate for a positive reading, rotate the distributor in the clockwise direction.
5. Repeat step 4 until 0 degrees is obtained.
6. Turn OFF the ignition.

NOTE: Refer to Fastener Notice in Cautions and Notices.

7. Tighten the distributor hold-down bolt to 3 N.M. (25 lb ft).
8. Start the engine.
9. Raise the engine speed to 1,000 RPM and with the scan tool view the Camshaft retard Offset to verify 0 degrees has been maintained.

What is the firing order for a 2004 dodge durango


The firing order is a sequence of ignition time when the engine cylinders deliver their power-strokes starting with the number-one cylinder. If this sequence is faulty or arranged disorderly, the engine may not start at all, and if it does start, it may does so hesitatingly, or not run enough well to enable it to drive-or simply lacks the power to move. A waste of gas, and unecessary tear and wear on the engine and its critical components ultimately result. Once the firing oder is correc and in proper sequence, the engine should starts easily and promtly, running as quietly as posiible.

For Dodge 2004 Durango firing-order:
All 6-cylinder K 3.7L MFI SOHC distributorless ignition:
1-6-5-4-3-2 (front 2-4-6) (back 1-3-5)

All 8-cylinder N 4.7L SFI (including HEMI 4-WD)
1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 (front 2.4.6.8) (back 1.3.5.7)
(distributorless ignition)
It is also a good thing to try and compare the thread lenghts of the old spark-plugs being replaced with the new.

1978 CJ7 No power and back fires when accelerated.


Timing should advance when accelerated. You have the vac on the distributor hooked to manifold vacuum. It needs to be on ported vacuum. And your base timing could be higher. I would set it at ten degrees.

I need timing specs 2001 dodge dakota 2.5L


If it's out that far & you didn't say advanced or retarded, then there's a mechanical issue at hand,more than likely. Use a vaccuum guage & see what happens. If it's reading below 15, better check the timing chain. Could also be a blocked cat converter. The timing is computer controlled & rarely has a problem. Factory is 10 degrees advanced & doesn't change no matter what unless you unplug the coolant sensor & move the distributor. So if it's 12 advanced,no big issue,it's something else causing the lack of power. If it's retarded,you got the timing chain issue more than likely. Write back if you need more help.

The timing


Try advancing or retarding the timing a few degree's to get it to run, once running adjust the timing a few degree's again to get it smooth. Are you adjusting the timing from the timing belt or distrubitor cap?
