It depends on the year, which engine code it is, what emission equipment is installed etc. Check the underhood specifications sticker - hopefully it is still there and readable. It should be in front of the radiator somewhere.

The ignition timing is probably controlled by the computer, and cannot be manually set. Check to see if it has a distributor, if it does it may be adjustable, if not, it is not adjustable.

If you are asking about ignition timing there is none it is computer controlled.

It has no timing marks because the ignition timing is set by the computer and isn't adjustable.

It is synced to the crankshaft with a scan tool. It can not be done with a timing light.

User Avatar

it is a knock sensor that is used to adjust the ignition timing.

Fire order is 1342. The ignition timing on a 1.3 and 1.5 motor is 6deg BTDC+-1deg. B6 motor is 2deg BTDC +-1deg..Chris

something wrong with the ignition, most likely bad timing.

Spark plug gap - .034" Point Gap- .021 M/T, .017 A/T Dwell Angle- 24 to 39 M/T. 26 to 31 A/T If the 390 was produced in 1962, the ignition timing was five degrees before top dead center ("BTDC"). If produced in 1963 and equipped with a manual transmission, the ignition timing was five degrees BTDC, and eight degrees BTDC if equipped with the automatic transmission. If produced between 1964 and 1966 and equipped with the manual transmission, the ignition timing was four degrees BTDC, and six degrees if equipped with the automatic transmission. If the 390 was produced in 1967 and not equipped with the Thermactor Exhaust Emission Control System, the ignition timing was 10 degrees BTDC. The ignition timing for all other 390s was six degrees BTDC.

Certainly. Timing is critical to an engines operation and a stretched chain wont allow the valves to open and close at the correct time or the ignition to deliver a spark at the right moment.

I replaced the head gasket. How many pounds of pressure do I need to apply to the bolts on the head?

Pontiacs typically like 12-14 degrees initial timing. It's a good starting point.

10 deg. BTC if it an automatic and 6 Deg. BTC if manual trans.

what are the timing marks on a chev 305 motor for the year 1995.

User Avatar

Not sure which motor you have but none offered in the full size vans would have a belt. It would be a timing chain and they will usually last the life of a motor as they are internally lubricated by the engine oil of the motor. I have never heard of a broken timing chain under normal use. Usually they get stretched and can become noisy and/or jump a tooth and cause the motor to loose correct timing and run bad or not start.

mine slipped on the timing belt itself so check the timing first then work the fuses and then use a tachometer on the ignition coil if not it you might have a fried motor man

User Avatar

Has timing chain slap, thats why I asked the question above! Thanks

User Avatar

On my 1977 Ford 361 engine the info plate states 4 degrees BTDC. Be sure that you disconnect the vac. advance and cap the end and that there are no other vac. leaks

User Avatar

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.

how do you do the timing for a 350 small block] The FIRING ORDER is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2, that is, the sequence the cylinders fire in. #1 is on the driver's side front, #2 is on the passenger side front, and so on, back and forth. the correct ignition timing should be 4 degrees before top dead center.
