This depends on whether the engine is equipped with a distributor or with EDIS (Electronic Distributorless Ignition System). If EDIS, there is essentially no adjustment. If distributor, you remove the engine cover inside the vehicle and loosen/turn the distributor like any other. Get an aftermarket manual such as Chilton or Haynes for detail of procedure.
Adjust ignition timing. check knock sensor.
They are on the harmonic balancer but are they on the drivers side or on the passenger side?
If it is a distributorless ignition system, you don't. The timing is all handled by the ecm. It picks up the signal from a crank sensor in the block. It has a reluctor wheel cast in the crank.
How do you set the timing for an 1989 Chevrolet G20 van - 350 cu. in. with tbi?
Ignition timing is set on a 1989 Acura Integra by setting the distributor to the appropriate angle. When set at the factory recommended angle the car will turn over with no problems.
The ignition timing is computer controlled - not adjustable - but the base timing is 10 degrees BTDC
you can't it is controlled by the computer.
The timing is adjusted by the three bolts that holds the injection pump. The holes in the pump are slotted.
It is self adjusting on a 89 Cherokee with a in line 6 4.0
Look on the vehicle emissions control label it is there.
# Start the engine and allow it to warm up (cooling fan comes on). # Remove the rubber cap (YEL) from the ignition timing adjusting connector located at the left rear engine compartment and connect the BRN and GRN / WHT terminals with a jumper wire. # Connect a timing light to the engine; while the engine idles, point the light toward the pointer on the timing belt cover. ## Adjust ignition timing, if necessary (color refers to timing mark indicator). Specified value: 18°±2°BTDC (RED) at 725±5O rpm in neutral # Adjust if necessary by loosening the distributor adjusting bolts, and turning the distributor housing counterclockwise to advance the timing, or clockwise to retard the timing. # Tighten the adjusting bolts and recheck the timing. # Remove the jumper wire and install the rubber cap onto the ignition timing adjusting connector.
it is 12 atdc for the 88, I assume they are the same
The igniton timng is 6 degrees BTDC
If you talking about were the key goes into the Ignition then try this. I have a 1991 aerostar. Disconnect your battery. Then remove the screws holding the plastic steering wheel cover. then by looking at the bottom of the steering wheel near the ignition you should see a little button (or what looks like a hole) With the key in the ignition push this button/hole and pull on the ignition (not Majorly hard) Slowly turn the key and it should come out easaly when it is in the on position.
adjust the timing or use better grade/octane of fuel or both
how do you fix a gas guage on a 1989 ford aerostar
where are timing marks on 89 ford probe 4 cylinder I have the bottom not the top
pull you #1 cyl. to top dead center and line your rotor up with the #1 post on the disb. cap.
There typically isn't any timing marks at the distributor. It is possible to slightly advance or retard the ignition (spark) timing by rotating the distrubitor but as far as timing marks go, the only that you will find will be right above the camshaft sprocket and the harmonic balancer (crankshaft pully). possible one more for the oil pump or countershaft.
That would be 21 gallons.
On the 1989 Aerostar it is under the dash near the passenger door.
It is inside the fuel tank.
A 1989 Honda Accord has a timing belt.
