    Thanks, Lasvegastech!



    I thought that your response was very quick. I really appreciate your taking the time to answer me.



    I now will check the timing to see if it is on, and if it is, I guess i will need to start checking other things out to cure my problem.



    Thanks again.

Initial Timing 10 degrees before top dead center NOTE: Initial timing is measured with engine at normal operating temperature and Spark Output (SPOUT) connector disconnected or shorting bar removed.
rpm should be arrown 850
excuse the delay but been so busy

At what degree angle would I set my timing mark for Suzuki Vitara 16v engine


old post.
http://www.scantool.net/software/alldata-diy-1-month-subscription.html

the answer is this in USA, are you>?
open hood, look up ,behold the white sticker, and is there.
all suz. have a timing freeze jumper, starting in newer years its a factory only scan tool setting.
on yours, must 1.6L , the liters tell me what engine not valve count.
to set timing, you need a strobe light , got one?
1: hot motor.
2; idle rpm perfect. not too low, or high.
4: timing freeze, enabled.
5: set timing with strobe , using under hood sticker data.

1977 ford f-100, 302 motor, c4 transmission. set the timing


With the vacuum line(s) dis-connected from the distributor and plugged up, the engine timing should be set at 4 degrees before top dead center idling at 650 rpm, and if it has California emissions then the ignition timing should be set at 12 degrees before top dead center while idling at 700 rpm. If the timing specifications listed on the vehicle emission label are different from these specifications then the specifications listed on the emission label are to take precedence.

Use a timing light to check the ignition timing, (and be sure that the timing light is connected to the #1 spark plug wire) and if the ignition timing is not to specifications then loosen the distributor hold down and turn the distributor until the timing marks move into position and are aligned to the timing specification, then tighten down the distributor hold down and then re-check the timing to be certain that the distributor did not move out of timing when the distributor was tightened down, then re-connect the vacuum line(s) to the distributor and re-set the engine idle back to where it was if it had to be changed. Be sure that the timing scale and marker down on the harmonic balancer/crankshaft pulley and the engine block are clean and they will show up well, and you can also mark them with chalk so the engine can be timed easily.

If you connect the vacuum line(s) to the distributor and the engine runs poorly then all of the vacuum line(s) to the distributor will have to be checked and then connected to their proper vacuum source.

If the ignition wires are leaking secondary voltage you might get a good secondary voltage shock if you touch the distributor to turn it. Let me know if you need help connecting and using a timing light, or if you require any further assistance.

Here is a firing order diagram to help assist you.

IT IS MISSING iVE REPLACED THE PLUGS


Misfiring Escort...
THE Guide!
1- check HT leads, including the main lead from the coil. pull one off at a time and see if there is any difference in engine noise, if a lead makes no difference to the engine note when you pull it off it is broken and you need a new lead for that plug - best to replace a full set since the others will be on their way out too. try each plug and check the leads like this with the engine running, 2- clean/repace distributor cap and rotor arm if it is dirty or corroded, there are 2 Clips, one on either side of the distributor cap, pull em off, take the distributor cap off, look inside the cap, there are 4 pins, are they all corroded and covered in white stuff?, they should be shiny brass, clean them up with fine wet and dry sandpaper, make them flat and shiny again. also still on the distributor is the rotor arm, pull it off, it may need a bit of wiggling - clean this up the same with the wet and dry, get a very fine grade of wet and dry sandpaper since you want the metal to be as smooth as possible afterwards, once the cap and rotor both have shiny metal clean them with mild detergent, rinse and dry them fully, not only to clean them of dirt and grime but also the metal filings from the sanding are "bad" for the distributor.. once dried refit the rotor arm (it only goes on one way, do not force it) refit the distributor cap, make sure its the right way round (make a note of its position BEFORE you remove it) 3- check if air filter is blocked and replace it if it is very dirty - if you think it is blocked try running the engine without the filter and see if it runs better, you know for sure you have a bad filter if this is the case. 4- check fuel filter (especially on 1.0 and 1.3 engines) for blockage and fuel line for blockage (replacement costs £3.50-£5 or so)
apart from that its "experience required" jobs like setting the ignition timing - just get a normal tune up after you've checked out the leads and dizzy/rotor arm which is quite cheap on an escort, you only turn the dizzy and move 1 screw...
Just for reference in case i have misjudged you're ability and you want to try tune it yourself... 1989 MK4 Ford Escort ;-D you didn't give CC so you'll get all engine data for 1989! (petrol)
NOTE: the CVH engines have hydraulic tappets so no adjustment is possible and no data is given. ---------------------------------------------
Escort 1.3 "HCS" 1988-1990 1297cc Valve tappet clearances - Inlet --- 0.20mm - Exhaust 0.32mm Firing order 1-2-4-3 Idle speed - 700-800RPM -
750RPM is optimal idle but anything between 700-800RMP is acceptable.
Ignition Timing- 15 Degrees before top dead center at idle RPM
Spark Plugs : Motorcraft - AGRF22 Champion - RS9YC Spark Plug Gap - 1.00mm (check it is right or it will misfire...)
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Escort 1.4 (1392cc) "CVH" - 1986-1990
Firing Order 1-3-4-2 Idle speed 750-850RPM, 800 being optimum _____ NOTE: This engine requires premium fuel (97 Ron) or it will run poorly - damage may result from using low grade fuel. ----------------------------
Ignition Timing - 12 degrees BTDC at idle RPM. Spark plugs - Motorcraft - AGPR22C Champion - RC7YC Spark plug gap 0.75mm (check this)

----------------------------------------------------------
Escort 1.4i Catalyst - 1.4 "CVH" 1392cc 1989-1990
Idle RPM 850-950RPM 900RPM Being optimum :This engine needs only regular unledad 95RON
Ignition timing - 8 to 12 degrees BTDC 10 degrees being optimum Spark PLugs - Motorcraft - AGPR22C1 Champion - RC7YC
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ford Escort 1.6 "CVH" 1596CC
Firing order 1-3-4-2 Idle speed - 750-850RPM - 800 being optimal Ignition Timing - 12 degrees BTDC at 800 RPM Spark Plugs - Motorcraft - AGPR22C Champion - RC7YC Spark Plug Gap - 0.75mm (check it!)
NOTE :This engine will run on regular fuel (95 RON) but the timing should be set to 8 Degrees BTDC at idle RPM for this fuel.
------------------------------------------------------------
FORD ESCORT 1.1 - 1989-1990 - 1118cc "HCS"
Firing order 1-2-4-3
Idle speed - 700-800RPM 750 Being optimal
This engine runs on regular or premium fuel without adjustment
Ignition Timing - 10 degrees BTDC
Spark Plugs - Motorcraft - AGRF22C1 Champion - RS9YC Spark Plug Gap 1.00mm (check this!)
-------------------------------------
So check your spark plug gaps with feeler guages if you don't have a feeler guage they're less than a fiver at a cheap motor shop - even pound shop and market stalls sometimes have them.
Apart from that lot - these cars can run bad if the battery is weak, they chug like hell on a half charged or failing battery, so make sure the battery is strong too...
The carburettor jets could be clogged or worn... Inlet manifold could be leaking?
Check the low tension wiring (the wiring on the ignition coil, the two round plugs that puch onto the coil) one red and one green/black/stripey/somethin - trace these two wires around the engine bay and check them for damage and loose connections.
Thats all I can think of right now tell me how you get on, I KNOW these cars... I'll go step by step if you need help checking everything/replacing whats wrong,
------------------------------
Good luck.

What should the valve timing be on a 1990 daihatsu charade 1990 3 cylinder


Ignition timing should be checked and adjusted whenever spark plugs are replaced or any distributor maintenance is performed. Ignition timing at 1000 RPM or less should be as follows: on 1989 1.3L/4-79 engines, 3-7°BTDC; on 1990-92 1.3L/4-79 engines, 0-2°; on 1.6L/4-97 engines, 1-5°.
