What cylinder is used to reset distributor on 1994 Isuzu p.u. 2.3 engine


Unlike French cars which tend to use number four cylinder as the timing cylinder, almost everyone else including Isuzu use the traditional number one as the timing cylinder, not that for practical purposes it matters very much as it is a simple matter to discover which cylinder is at the top of the compression stroke and then fit the distributor with the rotor pointing at the distributor cap segment for that cylinder.

It is the direction of distributor rotation that confuses people more than anything as many rotate anti-clockwise although I believe the one you are working with rotates clockwise. Another problem with many traditional distributor installations is they often share the oil pump drive which must both be aligned before the distributor will successfully slide home and then because of the skew-type drive gear the distributor turns considerably on the way in and then the rotor is found to be misaligned. The apprentice mechanic soon learns to anticipate and allow for these things.

If the same distributor is being refitted it is best to make alignment marks to cut the amount of time and effort. Few engines require the removal of the distributor for routine timing belt replacement and usually all that is needed is an ignition timing check with a stroboscope.

How to remove distributor on 1994 nissan pathfinder


Hi there:
Check this removal procedure (See Figures 1 through 5)

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Unfasten the retaining clips (only remove the coil wire if necessary) and lift the distributor cap straight off. It will be easier to install the distributor if the spark plug wiring is left connected to the cap. If the plug wires must be removed from the cap, mark their positions to aid in installation.
  3. Remove the dust cover and mark the position of the rotor relative to the distributor body; then mark the position of the distributor body relative to the engine block.
  4. Detach the harness assembly connector.
  5. Remove the pinch-bolt and lift the distributor straight out, away from the engine. The rotor and body are marked so that they can be returned to the position from which they were removed. Do not turn or disturb the engine (unless absolutely necessary) after the distributor assembly has been removed.

INSTALLATIONTiming Not Disturbed

  1. Insert the distributor in the block and align ALL matchmarks made during removal.
  2. Engage the distributor driven gear with the distributor drive.
  3. Install the distributor clamp and secure it with the pinch-bolt.
  4. Install the distributor cap and fasten the harness electrical connector.
  5. If necessary, install the spark plug wires and coil wire.
  6. Start the engine. Check the timing and adjust it if necessary.

Timing Disturbed
  1. It is necessary to place the No. 1 cylinder in the firing position to correctly install the distributor. To locate this position, the ignition timing marks on the crankshaft front pulley can be used.
  2. Remove the No. 1 cylinder spark plug. Turn the crankshaft until the piston in the No. 1 cylinder is moving up on the compression stroke. This can be determined by placing your thumb over the spark plug hole and feeling the air being forced out of the cylinder. Stop turning the crankshaft when the timing marks indicate TDC or 0 .
  3. Oil the distributor housing lightly where the distributor bears on the cylinder block.
  4. Install the distributor so that the rotor, which is mounted on the shaft, points toward the No. 1 spark plug terminal tower position when the cap is installed. Of course, you won't be able to see the direction in which the rotor is pointing if the cap is installed, so lay the cap on the top of the distributor and make a mark on the side of the distributor housing just below the No. 1 spark plug terminal. Make sure that the rotor points toward that mark when you install the distributor.

On the VG30i and VG30E engines, align the mark on the distributor shaft with the protruding mark on the housing.

  1. When the distributor shaft has reached the bottom of the hole, gently move the rotor back and forth slightly until the driving lug on the end of the shaft enter the slots cut in the end of the oil pump shaft and the distributor assembly slides down into place.

On the VG30i and VG30E engines, the distributor rotor tip should be in the 11 o'clock position.

  1. Fasten the distributor hold-down bolt.
  2. Install the spark plug into the No. 1 spark plug hole.
  3. Install the distributor cap and engage the harness electrical connector.
  4. If necessary, attach the spark plug wires and coil wire.
  5. Start the engine. Check the timing and adjust it if necessary.

I have a 1994 dodge ram b250 conversion van with a 3.9 v6 and i had to put a timing chain and gears in and now i can get it to fire no spark all it does it whirl over and again no spark from dist. to coil...


check to make sure distributor electrical wires been reconnected to distributor.and check to make sure distributor is receiving 8 volts supply from the pcm.check see if orange wire going to distributor to pcm getting power. because spark plugs not firing could be pcm, coil itself bad or crankshaft sensor bad. i would code scan vechicle before buying new parts ignition.timing off if you did not have distributor in number 1 firing position before removing the timing chain.

Where is the "When thats done, you can make sure


The number "6" that he refers to only applies to the EDI distributor. If you have the HEI distributor, you won't have the number 6 to worry about.With the EDI, or Enhanced Distributor Ignition, the distributor can't be rotated to adjust the timing. The number 6 molded into the housing is basically a timing mark and the rotor must be installed so it lines up with that number.

1994 4.3 LITRE ASTRO IGNITION TIMING KNOCKED OUT HOW TO REST mechanical TIMING


First disable spark. Disconnect the wire from the
ignition coil so you don't get zapped. Remove the
number one spark plug, which should be the driverside front. Have someone "bump" the ignition
key, which is just cranking the engine in half second
intervals while holding your finger over the number one
spark plug hole. When a puff of air comes out that hole
stop cranking. Align the groove on the crankshaft
balancer with the groove on the tab on the timing cover.
Forgot what size of bolt hold the balancer to the
crankshaft, might be a 5/8". Use that to manually turn the balancer to align. When thats done, you can
make sure the distributor rotor faces the triangle with
the number 6 on the distributor housing. There is
another triangle with the number 8, which is for V8
engines only. Make sure you're aligning with the 6. If
not, unloosen the distributor holddown clamp, lift it,
turn the rotor past the triangle, and lower it back
down. If the dist. is seated correctly, it should align
with the number 6. If it won't seat, you may need to
turn the oil pump drive with a long flat head screw
driver a little bit, which may take a little finessing.
One thing I seen on these distributors is that the
assembly where the rotor screws onto becomes loose from
the distributor shaft. It's pressed onto it from the
factory. To tell if yours is loose just try to turn the
rotor by hand when the distributor is installed. If it
does, you need a new distributor. That assembly acts as
a timing window for the camshaft pickup. I seen this
problem on 4.3l engines in Astros, Safari's, S-10's, and
in Blazers. Here are a few picks to help you out.

How do i get my timing back on, on a 1997 Nissan Pathfinder?


Nissan Pathfinder engine timing is controlled by the Crank Shaft Angle Sensor, or in other words the distributor. which receives the signal from the ECU and the distributor receives its spark from the POWER TRANSISTOR, BASED ON THE CRANK ANGLE SENSOR **** POSITION. The distributor has 360 slits which measure the signal input at 180 degrees and 360 degrees.
The crank shaft pulley has timing marks in increments of 5 degress per mark. The correct timing for a 1988 V6 engine is 12 degrees BTDC (Before Top Dead Center) + or - 2 Degress (Strive for 12).
You can then attached the timing light to spark plug wire #1 and point the gun to the timing pointer. With each flash you should see the timing mark (Mark it with white out). If the timing mark does not line up you can loosen the distributor and move it so it lines up that is the damper mark with the pointer. EITHER RIGHT OR LEFT WHICHEVER WAY IS REQUIRED. It is imperative if you have manual tranny to ensure the engine is idling 850 rpms + or - 50, but strive for 850.
700 if Auto Tranny. + OR - 50
Don't forget to retighten the distributor.

Ignition coil??


Its the distributor that needs to be replaced. Its probably the coil alone that bad but the coil is built into the distributor, so you will have to replace as one unit. Make sure when replacing the distributor you set the car in base timing thats the rotor head tointed to cylinder #1 and number on piston on TDC(topdead center)before you remove distributor shaft then repalce in the same position and your problem should be solved. Good Luck
