it depends on how far it is off . sometimes it requires removing and repositioning the distributor. if it is not much you may loosen the bolt that holds the distributor down and adjust the distributor left or right in order to advance or retard the timing. you will also need a timing light and a grease pencil preferably white in order to mark the timing scale on the flywheel pulley with the right degree for your car. usually two people are better than one since the vehicle will have to be running and always be careful leaning over a running motor not to catah your clothing or body parts (be carefull).
Are you really sure it is a '98 ?

The 2.9 liter V6 engine in a 1990 Ford Ranger has a timing CHAIN
If no spark has been confirmed, then check the Ign. module, coil, & dist.
the timing is usually set by adjusting the distributor and using a timing light on the number one cylinder and pointing the light at the harmonic balancer on the bottom of the engine crankshaft pulley,the timing mark on thr balancer should be marked on the correct degree for example 10 degrees before top dead center. as the distributor is turned the timing on the light will adjust to the balancer . to get the correct timing look under your hood for a sticker that has timing and sparkplug gap specs.
Chain and it is a very (~1000.00) costly fix.
If timing is bad on a 1990 Acura Integra they car will either run incredibly rough out not at all. To fix the timing be sure to correctly align the distributor to the right factory specified degree.
The only fix for broken timing belt or chain is to replace it.
If it is working what needs to be fixed? Assume, the lack of display. Not sure but I think the radio has two separate fuses, one for the radio one for it's display, check the fuses I have had similar problem but not sure if it was with my Topaz

How do I fix a timing belt for a 2001 4x4 450 four wheeler
well first you need to get the timing close enough to crank then put a timing light on it and bring timing to top dead center.. which is the second mark on the timing chain cover.. there will be a mark on the harmonic balancer line that mark up with the second mark on the gauge on the timing chain cover.. and should be fine
Take it to the shop, and have them adjust the timing. It is a lot faster and easier for them to do it for you.
my 91 Honda prelude 4ws si with 2.1 engine had high idle in park. then my timing belt went put a new belt on hasn't done it yet!!! I do not fix them, I bring it to the dealer and let them fix it.
You fix it by replacing it.
advance the timing a little.
you fix it
you cannot fix the timing on your tbird as it is electronically controlled and does not have a distrubutor. have your camshaft or crankshaft sensors checked
To fix the Pontiac Sunfire if it jumped time, the timing belt has to be replaced. Then the car has to have the timing set again after the belt is replaced.
