Hello...I have a '95 GMC K2500 Suburban with a 5.7L that failed a recent emissions test. I replaced the spark plugs, removed and cleaned the EGR...cap, rotor wires look OK...truck re-tested worst


Retarding the timing will cool the combustion which will lower the Hydrocarbon number,it will run bad but after a passed e test put the timing back to an advanced state which may help with the stumble.

Where is the wire located to stop automatic timing adjustment on a 1994 GMC 1500 5.7L


Hi:) There is a brown wire with a singal black connector in the wiring harness under the brake booster that goes up behind the engine on the drivers side to the distributor area.You disconnect this wire to disengage the computer timing auto adjustment. Set the timing to 0.deg and turn off engine before reconnecting brown wire. Computer will automaticly set the timing.

What is the timing set at for a 1991 Camero 305 V8 ?


Try 0 degrees. It should state it on the radiator cover, but mine didn't. I tried 10 advance and it started real hard. I think you need to disconnect the single wire terminal near the distributor/coil that sticks out of your harness wrap before you set timing and reconnect it afterwards. That's what I recall from my TPI car and this TBI car seems to have the same electronics. Good luck.
