Yes ANSWER No - a 1998 3.0 L Ford Ranger does not have a distributor which would allow you to adjust the ignition timing - it has a coil pack and the ignition timing is controlled by the PCM ( powertrain control module )
If you mean ignition timing it will be 10 degrees BTC.
10 degrees BTD
Yes , the 3.0 liter V6 in a Ford Ranger has a timing CHAIN
That requires an OBDII engine scanner to do that. The ignition timing is controlled by the computor. If you have not moved are removed the distributor then there's no reason to fool with the timing.
The 2.5 liter has a timing BELT
The Ignition and Fuel are triggered from the crankshaft. The distributor is only a cam angle sensor and spark distributor.i.e. NO TIMING ADJUSTMENT possible.m
In a 1993 Ford Ranger : The 2.3 liter four cylinder engine has a timing BELT and The 3.0 and 4.0 liter V6 engines have a timing CHAIN
1997 Ranger 4.0L engines have a timing chain.
In a 2000 Ford Ranger : 2.5 liter four cylinder engine has a timing BELT 3.0 and 4.0 liter V6 engines have a timing CHAIN
For a 2.3 liter ---- For a 4.0 liter ----
