This is timing, either advanced or retarded and should be controlled by the ECM unit. Check inside distributor for signs of spark shorts. Have you checked for computer codes?

How to timing a 89 chevy 350


With a warm engine and timing light ready (engine running) disconnect the single connector (black and brown wire) located on the passenger side firewall. It sticks out of the main wiring harness. Set the timing by rotating the distributor. Clockwise to ****** the timing and counter clockwise to advance the timing. Lock the distributor in place @ 4 deg. before top dead center. Shut the truck off and reconnect the black and brown wire.

I think your sensors are pattern parts and the readings /resistances are not the same as the original parts ,try some bosch units is my first suggestion ,

A spark timing adjustment malfunction. A short to Ground between Real? time clock and Engine Control Module.


Most likely a faulty knock sensor which could cause the timing to stay retarded and cause performance issues. Use a scanner to read the timing while accelerating and see where it is and if it advances. Let me know.

Need advanced timing degree for 1969 cutlass 350 rocket could it be between 8-10 deg


1969 ,points and distributor ,,,, then unleaded petrol 95 i would set it to 6º at idle ,now as this vehicle was designed to run on leaded fuel with a higher compression than that used on modern cars you could use a lead substitute and set timing to 10º on idle ,now iam not sure if this vehicle had stellite coated valve seats and valves and only a dealer might know ,now if it hasnt got stellite valves and seats then you must use the lead substitute or the valves will burn out ,but if the negine does have stellite valves and seats then it will run quite happily on the unleaded fuel with the timing retarded a bit ,i mean i bet its a 4 litre or something so a slight loss of power will not be noticeable ,but a 998cc morris minor its quite a difference

How Do I Set the timing on 2001 Nissan Quest ? is there a Vacuum advance ?


the timing is controlled by the engine computer. You only set the base timing at 15 degrees by loosening the distributor hold down bolt and turning the distributor until the timing light shows on the 15 degree mark on the crank pulley.

How do you time a toyota 4 runner 3.0?


22r-E, 3vz-E And 3f-E Engines

  1. Warm up the engine, then turn it OFF. Connect a timing light to the engine following the manufacturer_s instructions.
  2. Connect a tachometer to both battery terminals. Connect the tachometer probe to the IG-terminal in the check connector box. The check connector box is located next to the underhood fuse and relay box on trucks and 4Runner's; for Land Cruisers, the check connector box is on the firewall. Use the correct adapter to insure a tight fit on the terminal. Not all tachometers, particularly older ones are electrically compatible with this system. Read instructions for your unit before using.

Attach the tachometer as shown

3. Start the engine and run it at idle. Check the idle speed on the tachometer; adjust it to specification if necessary.

4. At the check connector, use a small jumper wire to short the connector at terminal T or TE1 and terminal E1, of the DLC1 as shown. Special service tool (SST) 09843-18020 or its equivalent can be used for this also.


5e2a188.gif
Connect the SST or jumper wire to the TE1 and E1 terminals of the DLC1

This jumper will be used repeatedly during diagnostics in later sections. Take the time to make a proper jumper with correct terminals or probes. It's a valuable special tool for very low cost.
  1. Check the idle speed, then check the ignition timing. The 22R-E should read 5° BTDC, 3VZ-FE should read 10° BTDC and the 3F-E should read 7° BTDC. All of these readings are at idle.

9e72a1d.gif
On 3-FE engines, remove the rubber plug at the rear of the engine to view the timing mark


e3f2232.gif
On other engines, the timing mark is visible on the crankshaft pulley

  1. Loosen the distributor pinch bolt just enough that the distributor can be turned. Aim the timing light at the marks on the crankshaft pulley (or the drive plate on 3F-E) and slowly turn the distributor until the correct timing mark aligns with the pointer. Tighten the distributor pinch bolt.
  2. Remove the jumper wire or special service tool (SST) from the DLC1.
  3. Check that the ignition timing advances. At idle the 22R-E should read 10°-14° BTDC, 3VZ-FE should read 8° BTDC, and the 3F-E should read 12° BTDC.
  4. Shut the engine OFF and remove the timing light and tachometer leads.

Timing off


1st, Confirm that the distributor rotor is getting spun by removing the distributor cap and watching it while someone cranks the engine a couple of turns.
If it isn't turning, you've got major internal engine problems (timing belt or chain broken, etc.).
If it IS turning, you may still have major problems... distributor jumped a tooth or teeth or the pin that holds the gear to the distributor shaft may have sheared.
If the rotor turns and is in the correct position for Top Dead Center for cylinder one, then you might have something as simple as a severe vacuum leak from a bad hose... something HIGHLY likely in a vehicle this age.

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.

94 caprice v8 an i cant spin wheels (burnout) what to do


Sounds like the timing is retarded. Loosen the distributor hold down bolt and turn the distributor counter clockwise about a half inch or so. Then drive the car. If it runs better then get a timing light and set the timing to 10 to 15 degrees before top dead center (btdc) at idle with EST disabled (if equipped) or if it has a vacuum advance with vacuum hose disconnected. Good luck.
