Best Answer

warm the car up to operating temperature. turn car off, unscrew the over in the console(cigarette lighter area) and jumper terminals a and b on the accl connector. set up your timing light and make sure the belts are clear. start the car with the jumper in place. the check engine light should flash, this is normal, set timing to what is specified on the label on the inside of your engine lid, my 85 se 2m6 is set at 10 degrees btc. marks are on the crank pulley for timing. set timing light off number one cylinder sparkplug wire. one is closest to trunk area and passenger side of car.
