Question about 1985 Oldsmobile Delta 88

Open Question

1985 Olds Delta 88, 5.0 engine. Hesitates on acceleration (detonation). Trying to set timing and sticker in engine compartment says to ground "C3 diagnostic lead." Where is that? Is it the green connector in front of the carb that isn't connected to anything?

SOURCE: replacing side mirror

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

Adjust timing on 1985 olds delta 88 307 engine


Timing set a 20 degrees as factory specified.

Keep Backing off of timing 1 degree at a time until you don't have a pinging during acceleration.

Laging valve timing can not be fixed by simply advancing the ignition timing.

Check to see that you have less than 8 degrees of valve timing and you will be ok.

Hope this tip helps
