The timing marks on 86-89 accords are on the flywheel. there is a 1" x 1/2" hole in the block about 1/2 way down on the front where the engine and trans bolt together. its tough to see because there is a p/s hose bracket in the way. there are marks for tdc and the spec.

IGNITION TIMING IS 13 - 17 DEGREES BTDC AT 650 - 750 RPMS. YOU NEED A TIMING LIGHT.TO SET TIMING FIRST CHECK FOR ANY TROUBLES.MAKE SURE YOU HAVE NO CODES. NOW TO SET TIMING.APPLY PARKING BRAKE AND BE SURE THAT THE CAR IS IN PARK.START AND RUN ENGINE UNTIL IT GET OPERATING TEMPERATURE.RUN THE ENGINE ABOUT 2000 RPM FOR 2 MINUTES UNDER NO LOAD,TURN OFF ALL ELECTRICAL LOADS, DISCONNECT THE THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR,BE SURE THE ENGINE SPEED IS 700 - 800 RPM. REV THE ENGINE 2 OR 3 TIMES TO 2000 - 3000 RPM AND RETURN THE ENGINE TO IDLE SPEED.CONNECT A TIMING LIGHT TO THE NUMBER 1 CYLINDER SPARK PLUG WIRE AT THE DISTRIBUTOR END AND CHECK THE IGNITION TIMING BE SURE THAT THE TIMING POINTER IS POINTING TO THE 15 BTDC MARK ON THE CRANKSHAFT PULLEY,EACH NOTCH ON THE CRANKSHAFT PULLEY REPRESENT 5 DEGREES. IF THE TIMING IS NOT WITH IN THE SPECIFICATION, LOOSEN THE DISTRIBUTOR MOUNTING BOLT AND ADJUST THE DISTRIBUTOR UNTIL THE TIMING IS AT PROPER SPECIFICATION. TIGHTEN THE DISTRIBUTOR MOUNTING BOLT TO 10 - 12 FT LBS,STOP THE ENGINE AND CONNECT THE THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR.

I can find the timing mark I need riset the time on nissan pickup 1986 2wd


Hi,
the timing mark is usually a white painted groove on the main fan belt pulley.
Look for another plate with a a couple of lines or grooves mounted on the engine block right behind the fan belt pulley wheel.
Assuming you have hooked up your timing light per the instructions...When you shine your timing light at this area you are looking to see if the pulley mark lines up with the timing mark on the engine block plate when the engine is at a specific idling speed and the distributor is adjusted to make the timing mark line up when cylinder 1 is firing.
The engine block plate is often marked as 6 deggrees BTDC (before top dead centre). The middle mark is usually top dead centre. (the timing figure could be anything eg 8 deg BTDC..I am just usually an example figure)

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.

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.

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

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.

Setting timing


I think one must adjust the timing by advancing or retarding the ignition timing, not by adjusting the timing light.

If you are trying to set the BASE timing, you probably need to connect the orange/red and green/white wires of the blue service check connector with a jumper wire. The blue service check connector is located on passenger side under the dashboard.

The timing mark for this vehicle is on the flexplate / flywheel, and is usually located by removing a little rubber stopper or lifting off an inspection cover.

The timing is PROBABLY 15 degrees BTDC +/- 2 degrees. Be aware that many hondas PRIMARY ignition mark IS 15 degrees BTDC, NOT ZERO... so when you line the pointer and the flash up with the line, it is properly adjusted.

DISCLAIMER: I am (clearly) not a certified auto mechanic. Go check out and read a service manual from your local library. Your mileage may vary...
