What are the ignition timing marks for a 1996 Chevy camaro 5.7

Your vehicle has an electronic advancement inside the distributor. To properly set the ignition timing there is a plug that has to be separated. On the late 80s and early 90s it was on the firewall towards the passengers side. Brown or dark tan wire with a similar color plug. Follow the wiring harness from the distributor you can't miss it. If you leave this plug hooked up the engine will constantly try to adjust the timing and you will never get it set right. Once you get it set to 0° shut it off and hook the plug back up. The ecm will constantly adjust the timing sometimes up to 20° or more so that's y it looks off.

My 1995 fxstsb keeps misfiring on the rear cylinder. I have replaced the coil, plugs, and wires and after about 5 minutes of running good it started misfiring and sputtering again. What else can it be

Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition or leaking.
3. Spark plug gap to close or to wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discharged.
6. Damaged wire or loose connections at battery terminals especially the negative cable at "BOTH" ends, ignition coil, or plug between ignition sensor and module.
7. Intermittent short circuit due to damaged wire insulation.
8. Water or dirt in fuel system, carburetor or filter.
9. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
10. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
11. Damaged carburetor or intake seals.
12. Loose or dirty ignition module connector at crankcase.
13. Faulty MAP, CKP, and or CMP sensors.
14. Incorrect valve timing.
15. Weak or broken valve springs.

My 2001 ultra shut down I cranks but no spark. and the check engine light wont come on when I turn ignition on

Hi Anonymous, when checking for spark the CKP needs to measure the compression bump in order to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM so always check for spark with either a third plug grounded or lift the end of the plug boot 1/2 " off one of spark plugs that are in the head. and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections especially the negative cable at "BOTH" ends
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, spark plug cable connections loose,
or cables connected to wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module, or sensors " Manifold Absolute Pressure" "Camshaft Position Sensor" "Crank Position Sensor" "Brake Apply Sensor
11. Engine lubricant to heavy ( winter operation )
12. Sticking or damaged valves or push rod wrong length.
13. Primary cam sproket spline sheared or missing spacer.
14. Security alarm system not disarming. 1992 and later Touring Models, fuel pump fuses and relays will be behind the right side panel, starter and ignition relays will be under the seat behind the battery, everything else will be behind the left side panel to access fuses pull back on the front two locking tabs and slide the cover up.

1993 sl1 battery keeps going dead and a clicking noise in or around the driver side seat belt

I think the clicking sound is coming from the car's control computer which is inside the console. there is a circuit protection breaker which protects it and that is the noise.

you have a fault in the wiring or in a device attached to the wiring. it is drawing more current than it should, and it is doing it while the ignition is OFF. therefore the list of things which could be bad is rather short, unless the ignition switch itself is bad. on a car that old the ignition could be bad so you need to decide whether this car is worth having a good tech take a look at it. since it is only about a 500 dollar car at best, you can quickly get more invested in a repair than it is worth.

you can pick up a nice late 90s saturn for less than a grand.

Where do i put the wire going to the starter motor, i have one big wire that i remember where it does 12noon terminal and on the body of the car wire leanth is about 14". but the other 2 wires ?

The ground wire that is short and goes to the car body connects to the terminal by the starter motor (terminal that also has a wire going inside the motor).

Big red wire (from battery) goes to the big terminal opposite to the ground wire terminal and farthest from the starter motor.

Smaller wire (from ignition switch) goes to the small terminal.

No spark from jeep 4.0 ignition coil put new engine in got power to coil but no ground

If its the french ignition sys I t is a common problem,II would tap into the black wire and ground it a known good ground,if it fires up,make a good ground and cut the wire going to the vehicle as not to backfeed,more than likely the ECU has a problem because thats where the ground signal comes from,as far as I know this works from late 80s to mid 90s.hope this helps let me know if you need more info DB

The car will run for 10 to 15 min then die then 5 to 10 min after it dies it will start again. it has the 6 cyl

I've seen this with several vehicles within the mid 90s (including a 95 probe) and traced it back each time to the electronic ignition. As the car drives, the ignition coil heats up and becomes more resistive. As this happens, the coil outputs less voltage until finally it's not enough to put out sufficient spark to fire the cylinders.

Try this: Drive the car around for a while. When you start feeling the motor struggle, park somewhere and idle until it dies. Then quickly pop the hood, pull an ignition wire, pop in an extra plug and hold near the block (check for fuel leaks first!!) and observe the spark strength. If it looks weak, a new electronic ignition unit will solve your problem.
