How set timing on 3.2 liter v6

You don't give a make or model, It differs on many makes . so you will want a manual to find how to by pass the computer. base timing is then set with a timing light. It can't be set with the computer engaged as it will keep changing the timing.

I have a 5mge motor in my 1980 celica I can get it to fire but it won't idle I can hear the fuel pump it sounds a bit noisy but I pulled the fuel line off and tested it there was fuel pumping out but not...

well i can tell you right now if the fuel pump is making an audible noise then it is either broken or going bad. if the fuel was pumping out then i would have your fuel pressure checked before you just go and replace your fuel pump.

I need to set the timing on a 93 festiva

You need a timing light (assuming that it is the ignition timing that you want to set)
Locate the timing mark in the crankshaft pulley and mark it with chalk or tippex.
Locate the timing marks on the engine front casing.
Have the engine at operating temperature and connect the timing light to the #1 plug or lead(you can do that with the engine running if it is an inductive timing light with a clamp that goes over the cable).
loosen the distributor clamp and, with the light aimed at the timing marks and the engine at idle, adjust the distributor until the crankshaft mark lines up with the specified advance mark on the casing.
Tighten the distributor clamp and remove the timing light.
Be careful of pulleys, belts and fans, all can cause serious injuries if fingers, hair or clothing get caught up in them.

How to use a Matco Diagnostics Advance Timing Light

Hook it up like any other timing light. The difference is that you can look at the timing mark and turn the dial n the light until the timing mark on the engine is at zero. Whatever the dial read, that is the timing. This is most useful when you want to look at total advance at higher RPM's where the timing gets into 20 or 30 degrees, which is more than is on the timing pointer on the engine. If you want to use it like a regular timing light, just set the dial to zero.
