On an older vehicle like this , would start at 10 degrees BTDC; vaccum line to distributor plugged while setting timing.If it pings, back it off 2 degrees, if it does not ping under load, add 2 degrees. According to the repair manual timing should be 8 BTDC (6 degrees BTDC for calif. emissions and high alt.)
It does NOT have a timing belt, That engine has a timing chain and gears.
Yes , the 5.3 litre V8 engine in a 2000 Chevrolet Suburban has a timing CHAIN
NO. A timing light will not work on that engine. You must have an obdII engine scanner to set the timing on that year.

To set the timing on a 1994 GMC Suburban you need to warm up the engine while the car is either in park or neutral. Next, you adjust the distributor until the timing is set to where you want it.
the ignition timing is 6 degree BTDC.
Normally the chain will last the life of the engine and is replaced when the engine is overhauled.
you should set it at 0 degrees btdc
It could be a bad sparks plug or timing belt which would make it miss fire.If you do not have fire to the proper place in the engine, it will cause a miss fire due to the firing system of the engine.

It is mounted on the side of the timing cover on the front of the engine behind the harmonic balancer.
That requires an OBDII engine scanner to do that. The ignition timing is controlled by the computor. If you have not moved are removed the distributor then there's no reason to fool with the timing.
It is 8-10 degree before top dead center with engine warmed to operating temp., RPM's at the proper range and the check engine connector jumped at TE1 and E1.
