It is correct that the computer controls most of the timing on a 94 civic, however it is very necessary to have the base timing set correctly. If the base timing is off, your car will not pass smog, as this is a requirement (found this out today... 2 failed smog checks).

To set the timing you must first find the jumper wires underneath the passenger side of the dash. Usually there is a blue connector. You hook these two wires together, using a paperclip or some conductive material to place the engine into base timing (it factors out the computer completely). From there you use a timing light like you would normally. sensor to #1 plug wire, power to battery. There are timing marks on the crankshaft pully. Point the light at the pulley and pull the trigger, then adjust the distributor to get the timing to specs (my car is 12 + or - 2 degrees btdc).

The spark plug gap for a 1994 Honda Civic should be set at .044 inches. This gap will be preset at the factory for new spark plugs.

93 civic has a timing belt... if its dual overhead cams, it is nessecary to find the timing marks.. set them properly to their marks as well as the crankshaft. once these are properly set slip your timing belt on and then find the mark for your idler pulley.. reinstall everything and drive away

Timing on a single-cam 1998 Honda Civic is marked on the cam shaft. The distributor will also need to be set of the appropriate degrees.
