This truck has a computer controlled timing system. The timing is set at a base 0-2 degrees with the timing connector unplugged (single brown wire with a disconnect - usually under the passneger dash) Once you manually set & tighten the distributor at 0-2 degrees.... plug the timing connector back together. The timing at idle should now move to 10 degrees - give or take a degree.

How do you adjust timing on a 96 Chevy 350 5.7 liter vortec engine?

Basically, You cannot set timing is correct... But, turning the distributor serves only to adjust what GM calls the cam retard offset. Actual ignition timing is controlled by the PCM, based on the information it receives from various input sensors. To adjust the cam retard offset, connect a scan tool to the DLC. Bring the engine to operating temperature, then hold it steady at 1000 rpm. Monitor cam retard offset on the scan tool. It should be 0 2. To compensate for a negative reading, rotate the distributor in a counterclockwise direction, To compensate for a positive reading, rotate the distributor in a clockwise direction. Recheck the reading after tightening the hold-down bolt. It may change. Also note that attempting to retard the cam retard offset reading outside the recommended range will not cure spark knock, and may cause the PCM to store a diagnostic trouble code.

You may not get advance warning, but you should receive a letter from the Treasury Offset Program telling you that your refund that you were expecting to receive has been offset. Many times, the offsetting agency (in your case, the student loans) will send you a letter beforehand informing you of their intent to offset your federal refund.

It is only the ignorant that use the word 'retard' whether they are making an unkind remark to a friend or to anyone else and 'retard' is not used regarding people who have mental disabilities and are referred to as 'mentally challenged.'
