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.

How do you SET the timing on a 1989 Honda Civic?

# 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.

How do you remove the ignition switch on a 1989 Ford Aerostar van?

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.

Where are the timing marks on a 1989 Toyota Tercel so that the ignition timing can be adjusted at the distributor?

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.
