You need to find out the fault code that is stored that is causing the check engine light, the whole thing may be related to one failed part like the temperature sensor or the wiring to it.

How do you fix timing on 96 nissan sentra


For adjusting the ignition timing, you need a timing light.
Attach the spark lead from the timing light to the number one spark plug.
If the timing light is a powered type then
Attach the power leads of the timing light to the battery - red lead to the + terminal on the battery and the black lead to the - terminal on the battery.

Loosen the distributor so you can adjust the timing, start the engine and press the timing light trigger and aim the timing light on the timing marks on the crankshaft pulley. Adjust the distributor to the recommended timing mark for your engine.
Turn off the engine, remove the timing gun and tighten the lock on the distributor.

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.

I need to set the timing on my 2002 nissan altima


  • Tools needed: A timing light and wrenches.
  • Locate the crankshaft pulley at the front of the Altima's engine and clean it off to expose the timing marks. Start the car and turn off any accessories such as climate control, lights and the radio. Allow the engine to idle until it reaches normal operating temperature.
  • Turn off the engine and connect a tachometer to the distributor per the manufacturer's instructions. Connect the timing light to the battery and then to the number one ignition wire. Start the engine and verify it's idling at 1,000 RPM. Adjust the idle speed if necessary

  • Point the timing light at the crankshaft pulley to determine the amount of adjustment needed. Adjust the timing by loosening the distributor mounting bolts and turning the distributor until the crankshaft timing mark lines up with the middle line of the timing light.

  • Tighten the distributor mounting bolts and recheck the timing. Turn the Altima off and remove the tachometer and timing light. Reconnect the number one ignition wire.

    Timing honda accord


    Locate the crankshaft pulley at the front of the engine and remove any grease or dirt to expose the timing marks. Turn off any accessories such as the radio, climate controls and lights.
  • Step 2 Start the engine and allow it to reach normal operating temperature. The cooling fan will cycle on and off signifying it has reached the correct temperature. Shut the engine off.
  • Step 3 Connect the timing light to the battery if necessary and to the number one ignition wire located at the far end of engine on the driver's side. Restart the car and allow it to idle for 2 minutes.
  • Step 4 Point the timing light at the crankshaft pulley and determine the amount of adjustment needed. Loosen the hold down bolts on the distributor and rotate it slowly until the timing mark matches the middle line on the timing light.
  • Step 5 Tighten the distributor hold down bolts and recheck the timing to ensure it didn't move. Turn the engine off and remove the timing light. Reconnect the number one ignition wire.

    How to set the timing on a ford ltd 1982


    POINT TYPE IGNITION SYSTEMS
    1. Locate the timing marks on the crankshaft pulley and the front of the engine.
    2. If they appear dirty, clean the timing marks with a wire brush. Once clean, apply white paint to the marks to make them more visible.
    3. Attach a dwell meter/tachometer to the engine.
    4. Attach a timing light according to the tool manufacturer's instructions.
    5. Unfasten the distributor vacuum line at the distributor and plug the vacuum line. A small bolt, center punch, golf-tee, or similar object is satisfactory for a plug.
    6. Check to make sure that all of the wires, whether disconnected or attached to the timing light or tachometer, clear the fan and belts.
    7. Start the engine and allow it to reach normal operating temperature.
    8. Adjust the idle to the correct setting, if needed.
    9. Aim the timing light at the timing marks and depress the trigger on the light. If the marks on the pulley and the engine are aligned when the light flashes, the timing is correct. Turn OFF the engine, then remove the tachometer and the timing light. If the marks are not in alignment, proceed with the following steps.
    10. Loosen the distributor lockbolt (a special distributor wrench is available) just enough so that the distributor can be turned with effort.
    11. With the timing light aimed at the pulley and the marks on the engine, turn the distributor in the direction of rotor rotation to ****** the spark, and in the opposite direction of rotor rotation to the advance spark. Align the marks on the pulley and the engine using the flashes of the timing light.
    12. When the marks are aligned, tighten the distributor lockbolt and recheck the timing to make sure that the distributor did not move when you tightened the lockbolt.
    13. After timing has been set, tighten the distributor hold-down bolt to 17–25 ft. lbs. (23–34 Nm).

    While pointing the timing light at the timing marks, the other hand can rotate the distributor body to reach the correct alignment
