Where are the ignition timing marks on the block of a 1989 Nissan Sentra?

on the camshaft pulley there are six notches located on the inside lip closest to the block. there is a 2in pin at the 1 o'clock position when viewed from the front. each notch is a certain degree I have yet to verify.

fuel pump on my 1984 nissan sentra DX 4 door is in block next to oil filter under carb

Changing the cyl bore does not affect the ignition timing of the engine.

cam timing will not change ignition timing i would try 8 or 10 degees advance at idle with the vacuum advance disconnected.

no. even tho they might use the same QR25DE engine their still different that's why you can find a turbo for a sentra and not a altima its the same block pretty much but headers n trans are different.

Look for the thermostat housing on the back side of the block on the upper left-hand side.

4, or 6 degrees advanced, or BTDC, depending on your altitude.

Right around 6 degrees advanced, with todays pump gas.

6, to 8 degrees advanced, or BTDC., will work best.

Its just above the right inner CV joint, plugged into the bottom/ back side of the engine block. You can only get to it from under the car.

For the 1988 1.6 and for most cars, follow the top radiator hose from the radiator to the engine block. Remove the hose from the engine block then remove the flange the hose was connected to (usually 2 bolts but may be 3 bolts on the Nissan). The thermostat is behind the flange.

An engine may have one or more knock or detonations sensors in the block. The sensors use piezoelectric materials to detect vibrations in the block. If a certain vibration known to be caused by pre-ignition is detected, the ECU can take action, such as reducing ignition timing advance.

4, to 6 degrees advanced, (BTDC) initial, or 30, to 32 degrees total.

6, to 8 degrees advanced, or BTDC, will be about all you will be able to run, on pump gas.

There are contributing factors, however, about 6 degrees advanced or BTDC., should work best.

Tap the block or head with a hammer while the vehicle is running. If the engine slows down as you are doing this, it is sensing "knock" and trying to compensate by retarding ignition timing.

how do i set the timing for a chevy 350 small block?

User Avatar

If it is anything like my 1991 Nissan Sentra (and it probably is), the solenoid is actually attached to the top of the starter. The starter is located underneath the car, attached just below the engine block but on top the transaxle (where the transmission connects with the axle) it is very difficult to get to, on mine I had to remove the air-intake manifold and a few mounting brackets below the car.

The *thermostat* is behind the timing cover where the radiator hose goes to the engine block in the front-center of the engine

18436572 is the order. potentially the harmonic balancer should have a carved notch which lines up with the timing mark on the block somehow The degrees should be on a label under the hood.

If it is a distributorless ignition system, you don't. The timing is all handled by the ecm. It picks up the signal from a crank sensor in the block. It has a reluctor wheel cast in the crank.

Timing marks are always on the crankshaft, usually on the pulley closest to the block. This is because the timing must be based upon the position of the number one piston, which is connected to the crankshaft.
