E engine code (TBI) is 6 degrees BTDC for both the automatic and the manual trans I'm pretty sure the F engine code is the same (TPI). Of course any sticker under the hood that says otherwise overrides what I just said here. The way to tell whether you have the E or F engine code is; The E engine code is Throttle Body injected, and the Throttle Body injector will look a lot like a carburator. If it is F engine code, Tuned Port Fuel Injected, the throttle body will be very small and on the front of the intake plenum, there will also be 8 tubes going from the intake plenum to the intake manifold. If you can't identify these components please take it to a qualified mechanic.
try adjusting the ignition timing(or getting a mechanic to do it)
The timing for this engine is electronically controlled and not adjustable
Manual states...15.5 gal
Bring it to a shop and have them adjust the timing with a timing gun I believe its 6*
The timing on that year engine is computer controlled. It requires an engine scanner to set the timing. YOU CAN NOT USE A TIMING LIGHT.
there was no 350 in the camaros in 83 just 305 and v6
4 degrees btc
about 16 degrees btdc
cam timing will not change ignition timing i would try 8 or 10 degees advance at idle with the vacuum advance disconnected.
0 degrees btdc
it is a knock sensor that is used to adjust the ignition timing.
On my 1991 Firebird 305 TBI the computer shuts down acceleration after 110 mph. I would assume it is probably the same for a 1994.
What's the mileage on the engine and what altitude are you at? check out boxwrench.com
8 degrees before top dead center.
i just found out what this problem was it turned out to be my VATS module, it burnt out.
You may have compression on any cylinder where the valves happen to be closed, but you will not have compression on all cylinders. 1991 Sable does not have a 305 engine.
either 170hp or 200-230hp depending on transmission and exuast choices.
what are the timing marks on a chev 305 motor for the year 1995.
None, as the Firebird Formula wasn'toffered in 1986.
well, i have a '91 that came with the original 305, but after slinging a rod in it, i installed a 350. but i am told you can make it into a 383
6 degrees before TDC should do the trick
Just an educated guess, but I believe all 1992 305 Camaro's had TBI (Throttle body Injection), the 1989 Firebird 305 does not, other then that I don't know of any difference unless you have a more specific question...
