I believe that has the DIS, distributerless ignition system, if so there is no timing adjustment. The timing is controlled by the ignition module, crankshaft sensor and the ECM (engine computer).

Try having some run a test using and OSB tester. Sometimes if the sensor is going bad it will show.

Unless you have a 4 cylinder engine, and that's a maybe, there is no timing belt on that car. It uses a chain drive that will wear with age. The best way to tell is with a labscope that monitors the Crankshaft Sensor signal, and the Camshaft Sensor signal to see if they are in time and steady.
