You can't,they have a crankshaft position sensor which sends the location of the crank to the computer, the timing is then electronically adjusted by the computer also taking into account engine rpm, temp,air density,throttle position etc.Thats what peformance chips alter to produce more h.p. .

Where is the wire that has to be disconnected to set the timing on a 1998 Chevy pickup?

First place there is no need to set the timing if the distributor has not been moved. And there is no wire to unhook.The ignition timing is controled by the ECM / engine control module. If the timing is off you will have a check engine light on. If the light is not on, then the timing is correct. No need to bother, The computer is taking care of it.You have to have a OBD II engine scanner to set the timing.

1989 Chevrolet corsica 2.8 engine engine will not start have plenty of gas spark to plugs electric supply to imjecters?

Double check to make sure you have your spark plug wires in the correct order. If they're out of order (on the wrong plugs) the plugs will fire, but not in the correct order to ignite the fuel. If the wires are on in the correct order, check your ignition timing. Incorrect timing could also cause an engine with fuel and spark to not run. For references on how to check your timing, and what the timing should be, I would obtain a chilton's or hayne's repair manual. It will show you step by step how to do it, what numbers to use, and what tools you will need. Very helpful!

Why is your Probe V6 not starting the plugs are getting fuel to them and there is a healthy spark it just wont fire?

You need three things for ignition, fuel, spark, and a correct amount of O2 compression(air). You have the two, maybe the timing is off not allowing the correct amount of compression for ignition, belt jump or plug wires not in the correct position. If the timing belt has just been replaced double check all of the timing marks. Check, test or replace the crank angle sensor. You say you have fuel but is it enough? Check the fuel pressure to be sure.

How do you set the timing on a 99 escalade 5.7?

You can't it is nonadjustable, The timing is controled by the computer. And there is no reason to adjust it unless you had the distributor out of the engine and in that case you will need to turn it by hand enough to get it running, and that is called the base timing. Then you will notice that the check engine light is on and you will need an OBD2 engine scanner hooked up to the truck and then go into the timing mode and ajust the timing to factory spec. and the scanner will let you know when you have the timing correct. The check engine light will go off when you have the timing right. Then the computer will do the rest.

1993 Toyota pickup doesn't seem to be getting fuel when starting cold What could be the problem?

If a 1993 Toyota is acting like it is not getting fuel in cold weather, check the fuel pressure sensor. There is also the coil and timing that might cause the car to spit and sputter in cold weather. Also check the timing belt.
