You must make sure you have the distributer mark aligned with mark on the intake manifold. The PCM makes all the timing adjustments.

Info: The distributor is only used for the cam position, and spark distrubition.

It does not have one. The timing is controlled by the computer. You must have a OBDII engine scanner to adjust the timing. If you did not have the distributor out are move it then there is no reason to adjust the timing. It is done automatically by the computer.

The timing is computer controlled and there is NO need to fool with the timing as long as you have not moved or touched the distributor. It requires an OBDII engine scanner to adjust the timing.

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.

You can not use a timing light to set the timing on that year engine. The ignition timing is COMPUTER CONTROLLED. If you have not fooled with the distributor then there is no reason to adjust it. But if you have bother it then you will need an oBDII engine scanner to put the timing back to factory specs.
