How to set time on 94 s10 blazer 4.3 vortex. where is the dist. bypass wire locate.?

The distributor by-pass wire, seems to be the wire that runs from the distributor to the ECM module. Just disconnect it and retime, then plug it back in. If you have checked Top Dead Center on number 1 piston then all you have to do is move the distributor cap by untightening the 9/16's bolt below the distributor housing. This will allow you to rotate the distributor with the cap on to increase or decrease the rpm's at idle. You will need to tighten the bolt holding the distributor metal plate down after Idle is running smooth or the distributor will move when the vehicle is shut off. To remove the wire from the back of the ECM (Electronic Control Module) you will need to remove the distributor cap and two connectors that run to the coil pack from the distributor.

How do you change the distributer cap on a 91 astro van?

the distributer cap is located in the back of the engine and to get to is is relatively painless but you have to remove the engine cover on the inside of the vehicle which is under the dash in the middle of the vehicle which there is 2 big standard screws holding it to the firewall and 2 clamps holding the back side to the floor towards the seat. once you gain access to the engine compartment from the inside of the vehicle you will see the distributor cap right there looking at you. it is usually held on to the distributor by 2 small Phillips screws and will tell you first hand if the cap has not been changed in a while you might want to use a nut driver to break them loose and re-install in just reverse.
