have never seen a label under the hood to set the timing specs are in workshop mauels
Follow the directions on the emissions label under the hood of your car, it will tell you what to set the timing at and what connectors to disconnect to set the timing.
as long as the cam timing is set correctly there should be no reason to check ignition timing because there is no way to adjust it anyway. if there is a spec it should be under the hood on a white label.
There is a sticker under the hood that tells what to set the timing to and at what idle speed.
There should be information regarding the timing degree on a decal locaded under the hood.
under the hood there should be a white sticker with idle speed and timing on it you cannot set timing and idle on a 2.3. all that is controlled by the pcm
you don't the ECM will do it for you. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx You need to set the base timing on any car/truck that has a distributor. There is a tan/black wire that is usually under the dash down low on the passenger's side. This is the Electronic spark timing and the connector has to be apart to set the timing. That will put the computer offline while you set the timing to the specifications. There is usually a decal under the hood. Once the timing is set then reconnect the connector The base timing is set NOW the computer will take over from there.
under the panel up under the hood on the passenger side you'll find white or grey wire that you unplug. set your timing to spec, mine was 4 degrees then tighten dist. and reconnect wire
8 degrees btc Timing should be at 0 degrees ATDC that is factory XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX You need to set the base timing on any car/truck that has a distributor.

i suggest you look under the hood,an see ifit has a data sticker,that say's there's no timimg reguired.the 2002 i know has a timing sensor,which change's the timing atomatically.
The ignition timing on your vehicle is not adjustable. It is set according to driving conditions by the Powertrain Control Module, or PCM. There should be a sticker under the hood with this information.
the timing is computer controlled when there is no dist.---which became standard in 1987---previous to that you rotate the dist. and set it to the number of degrees advance that the decal under the hood says---some where around 10---the timing marks are behind the harmonic balancer (which is on the end of the crankshaft)
I believe that under the hood in front of radiator there is a label with this info. I have a 1994 s10 Blazer and I am going to sell it and I need some heLIp in setting a price for it. It Is in excellent condition and the motor was new, (not rebuilt) about eighty thousand miles ago
You need to loosen the two 10mm bolts that hold the distributor in place. Connect your timing light to the #1 spark plug wire. Timing specification at idle is 10 degrees with the DLC connector jumped. You need a short piece of wire to connect the "DIAG" and "GND" terminals under the box that says "Diagnosis" under the hood. Rotate the distributor as needed to set the timing to 10 degrees.
Run engine to temp. Turn off key. Unplug tan wire under hood. Start vehicle. Set timing at 0. Turn truck off plug in tan wire. Disconnect battery for 5 minutes
On that vehicle there should be a "CATALYST" sticker somewhere under the hood that will tell you what the timing should be and whether to check it with the vacuum hose disconnected or what. Of course you know you need a strobe timing light and to have read the instructions that came with it, right?
that seems like the problem yes, make sure to have the timing set before putting on a new belt, talk to me tombeam if you need help with doing it
check the emission decal on hood or radiator support
You cannot set the timing as it is all under computer control.The timing is controlled by the computer. Cannot check timing. Suspect timing is off, cam sensor, crank sensor, worn timing chain, bad pcm.
Look a the emissions sticker under the hood of your car, it has the timing information there. Mine says disconnect the timing connector at the distributor and set timing to 0 degrees.then reconnect the timing connector I have a 4.3 vortec. After setting the timing you will have a check engine light, clear it by disconnecting the negative battery terminal or pull the ECM fuse for a few minutes.
Injector timing on b6000 is adjusted by adding or subtracting shims under the injector pump. Timing should be set with fly wheel timing mark on cyclinder #1
There should be a label under the hood that tells you what the setting is. If you don't have that label, you can call your local Suzuki dealer and they can tell you. If you have to guess, I'd try around 6 to 10 degrees before top dead center. Or you can just do like me and set it by ear. If it starts with little effort and you don't get any pinging or valve rattle under heavy load or going up hills, you've got it pretty close.
Most newer cars 1990 up the timing is controlled by the computer. Read the tag under the hood that tells what motor is the the car it will probably say do not attempt to adjust timing.That is partially correct. The computer controls timing once the initial timing has been set. You can set the initial timing. You need a timing light. Basically you set up the timing light per its instructions and loosen the distributor hold down bolt/nut. Remove spout, start car and check timing with your light. You can move the distributor slightly to adjust the timing and tighten down when you are where you want to be. I would not go above 14 degrees and if you go there use premium fuel. HTH
If you look under the hood by the distributor there will be a pigtail coming off of the wires. there is a chip that has to be pulled to set the timing. On the 94's and 95's the spout connector is on the passenger side of the under hood area, near the air box, not like the 87-93 5.0's that have this connector right off of the distributor...
just like any other in the past except you have to unplug a timing connector befor setting it. leave it disconnected until you get the timing set. its located either under the carpet on the passengers side(just pull it down a little to see it), or under the big plastic cover under the hood on the passengers side. either way it will be a tan and black wire. the check engine light will come on just disconnect the battery when your done to reset your light.
Emmisions sticker under hood should have timing setting try 8 before the wire is a single connector look in the plastic cover on top of firewall that holds wires going across it
