What is wrong when number 1 cylinder is where number 4 is on the distributor


1 The locking nut has come loose on the distributor and it has moved. Check timing.
It would help to know what engine type (model) your talking about.

Struggle to pick up speed, jerks and jumps


With the milage your vehicle has , I would assume the timing chain is stretched. To check timing chain, take off the distributor cap, turn engine by hand clockwise till the distributor rotor begins turning. When you stop turning it start to turn back the opposite direction while watching the rotor, there should be no delay between the time you start to turn engine,and the time the rotor begins to turn. If there is any delay, then the timing chain needs to be replaced.

!999 Ford Escort SE will not start, In a day i take a few trips sometimes will start, battery fine, battery terminals cleaned, but will start if jumped, i'm thinking some sort of temperature/resis


It could be the battery. Make sure you get the battery checked. Make sure it is not just charging but able to hold a load and doesn't drain. The other problem it could be is with the firing of your distributor. I had a problem with my chevy s-10 where it would start and then after driving and stoping for a brief period it would not start. Then after a long period it would start again. I change all my plugs and still had the same problem. I changed the spark plug wires and had the same problems. I had someone to look at it and they changed a part in the distributor that had rusted. I think it was the relay.

Timing a 5.7 vortec in a 98 k1500


when you changed the lower intake gaskets you should have had to loosen and remove the distributor. if you did not get the distributor back in place within a fraction of where it should be it will cause your vehicle to "jump time". easiest way to get it in time without a timing light, assuming it did not jump bad enough you have to replace or readjust your timing chain, is to loosen the bolt holding the distributor in place and slightly turn it until it starts. after it starts just move the distributor back and forth until it is idling smoothly and is back in time.

Shut the car off, tried to start it later but it would not start. getting fuel and spark. it is a 2.0 non turbo engine. my only thought is that it may have jumped time. what do you think it could be?


you can test if the time is jumped, just move the distributor a little turning it to the left. and try to start. or change the rotor and the chip on your distributor.,......

or before that check your air intake box, may be the sensor that make open and close to controlled the air.


jumped time will be another option, . but i will be not %100 sure I need to revise the car my self to give u a exact cause,.

How to check the timing cause it jumped a gear


To set the timing on tghe truck, first remove the negative battery wire from battery. Put the truck in netural and set the parking brake,block the rear tires. Remove the distributor cap and check the location of rotor..Then get a socket and ratchet and turn the crankshaft (clockwise) until the timing mark on the crankshaft vibration damper aligns with the (TDC) top dead center mark.Then look at the distributor rotor, it should be pointing at the #1 cylinder on engine. If not remove hold down clamp from distributor and lift up just enough to turn rotor and push back down to check position of rotor. Remember TDC on crankshaft and rotor facing #1 cylinder. Hope this will help.

Went to change the sparkplugs and wires on my 87 oldsmobile 98 now it will not start just back fires have a new battery too just done today it was running rough today before we changed the spark plugs


Sounds like it has jumped timing. Check to make sure all wires are in correct spots, then see if distributor is loose enough to turn by hand, rotate it as far as it will go one way and try to start, if not go the other way and try. If it gets better one way or the other, you may have jumped time and need new timing chain or distributor gear.
