Hey Faith==You don't. It is electricaly controled. GoodluckJoe
how about the camshaft, valve timing, if the chain jumped on the sprocket wouldn't that cause timing to be off?
I believe 1985 Regencies had a distributor cap and was adjustable. 1986 and on are "fixed" and computer-controlled. Nothing you can do on it. If your car is "pinging" on acceleration or while going uphill, try the next higher octane gasoline. My 1990 Regency pings on regular gas, I have no problem on midgrade.
Another member brought up a good point: if the timing chain jumped a tooth on the sprocket, the timing would definitely be off. What are your symptoms/reasons for wanting to adjust the timing? GMS
The timing is computer controled and not setable.
Probably computer controlled and not adjustable

It depends on the motor..if you have overhead cam...then YES. The timing belt has to be removed when the water pump is changed and the cam sprockets have to be set to correct timing when the belt is replaced.
Unplug and reconect the coolant temp sensor.

where are timing marks on 89 ford probe 4 cylinder I have the bottom not the top
maybe check for a worn CAM LOB.
YOU don't set the timing on a 96, its all computer controlled. If your timing is off then you have a problem somewhere else. So if you timing is truly off then what needs to be fixed is whats causing it to be off. The computer sets the timing based on feedback that it gets from different sensors on and around the motor. And secondly i don't understand how you could even know if the timing was off in that car. But my advice is, if you know the timing is off and its not throwing any trouble codes, take it to a dealer.
