To set the timing on a 1991 Geo Storm, run the engine until normal driving temperatures. Turn off the engine. With a jumping wire, connect terminals 1 and 3 on the ALDL connector. (look under the compartment on the passenger side, it's a small box). Connect a timing light to the #1 spark plug wire and loosen the distributor cap. Start the engine, letting the engine idle. Aim the timing light at the timing belt cover, the white notch on the crankshaft pulley should line up with the 10 degree mark BDTC on the timing cover. Turn the distributor to line up the marks (if you had previously marked the cap to where the rotor is pointing before removing) After the adjustment is made, make sure the distributor cap is has not turned and tighten up the bolt. Take the jumper wire off the ALDL connector and then turn the engine off.
I think that after you put on the timing belt alighned properly,that your distrib. makes up the diff. when you adjust it. Jim

Turn the distributer to the right very slightly
Assuming a 1.6L engine, timing is generally controlled by the timing belt. Can adjust the timing by loosening the front lower bolt on the distributor and then rotating the distributor clockwise or counter clockwise. Use a timing light to set timing correctly. I believe it is 10 BTDC
If you mean ignition timing it will be 10 degrees BTC.
Probably computer controlled and not adjustable
electronic ignition on the 93, no controll. just set your timing.
Just to clarify the question, this is aking about static timing not dynamic with a strobe light.
e is for the exaust stroke......i is for ignition stroke......i is the one you are looking for
Crankshaft timing mark should be lined up with the triangle on the oil pump cover (at 12:00). Camshaft timing mark should be at 9:00 lined up with the cylinder head surface, and the dowel should be at 12:00. This is for the SOHC motor
The best way to get an accurate answer for the crankshaft timing on a Reanult Clio Diesel 1991 is to look in the service manuel. That should tell exactly how to set the timing.
I'm not really sure but if I truly have a answer it will be yes.
Computer controlled - not adjustable
