The Number One spark plug-- which is the one in front nearest the fan. Make sure to remove and plug any vacuum lines leading to the distributor before setting timing, and set with a warmed-up engine. When you finish, the vacuum line with suction on it at idle goes on the vacuum port nearest the distributor cap.

I had that problem, now is resolved as per below; *Dirty spark plugs. *Old rusted spark plugs cables. *Old timing Distributor cap and condenser. ** Carburetor not sincronized and check your catalistic. ***If original Timing ,,it needs to be replace . Once you check all that, make your decision ,,it may cost you , but after that,, you have a great solid car.

Are you asking about the time on the radio or the spark timing on the engine?

Do you have fuel ? And, do you have spark ? There's more, but start with that. Check for fuel and spark.

With a scan tool or by unhooking the battery.

Well, I'd check the distributor cap and rotor first. If those seem to be in fair order, then you probably have a slipped/broken timing chain/belt. If the timing gear doesn't turn, no spark will be sent to the plugs. Also check all wires to and from the coil, especially the coil wire itself. Bad coil wires are not uncommon (no connection between coil and distributor = no spark). The coil itself may be faulty or power wires to it may be broken/loose/shorted.

Assuming that you know how to use a timing light to adjust timing: 1. Disconnect the electronic spark control at the distributor. 2. The timing should be 10 degrees btdc. Rotate the distributor to achieve the proper setting at the timing mark on the crankshaft.

air flow is bad or t.p.s is bad check spark, check fuel

There is a idle screw on the throttle linkage on the carb that you can turn to increase the idle speed and then hook up your timing light to check the timing.

It is likely that it is not firing on all spark plugs, you should try checking spark plugs and timing, there could also be a problem with the distributor cap or spark plug leads themselves may be worn. Try chacking backwards from the spark plugs.

4 possibilities so far... 1. the new wires are still on incorrectly, check wiring diagram for your particular engine. 2. the timing chain and sprocket/gear has jumped a tooth or just plain worn out and needs replaced. 3. The timing is off, check timing with a timing light after others are remedied. 4. if all the above is correct, possibly a burnt valve or valves?

I have a 1985 celica GT and the fuel filter is located above the oil filter on the engine block. If the ST model has a 22re engine it should be the same.

Yes Check to see if vehicle is getting spark

5.2 quarts in the crankcase including filter

First of all after 1985 they called it Toyota supra not celica supra totaly different body style and for your answer get a big spatula.

Look at the firewall on the driver's side. There should be a wire (like spark plug wire) from it to the distributer. The distributor also has a module inside it that can short out or short to the metal. Good luck! Auntetr

Double check the firing order, you may have a couple of spark plug wires crossed. Also do a compression test, you may have bad valves.

you can check your fuel pressure! check the timing, maybe even your crankshaft and or camshaft sensor. maybe weak fuel pump

Do you have spark at the plug, check for that. Do you have fuel to the cyl. ? Check for that. Are the valves working properly ?

The main components to check are the battery, coil, the distributor, its cap and rotor and the associated wires from the coil to the distributor and from the distributor to the spark plugs. Distributor is on the front right side.
