Check to see if engine has fuel at carburetor and if it's getting spark at the spark plugs. If both fuel and spark are good then the problem could be with the timing settings or timing belt/chain is worn out/broken.
Your engine timing is off.
The spark timing must conform to the increase in rpm's of the engine. If the timing does not advance as the speed increases, the spark will not happen at the correct time during the exhaust stroke.
no the plugs just delivers the spark. you only need to do timing if u pull the distributor out of the block or do a timingChan or if the distributor slips
You change plugs because the continual sparking erodes the electrode, which slowly retards the ignition timing, which then makes the engine run inefficiently,
By advancing or retarding the spark.
Does it have spark?, Compression? Timing?
No. Ignition timing is totally controlled electronically, and changing plugs will not have a direct effect. You can always check it with a timing light if you want, but there's nothing to adjust.
That year does not have 1. The timing is computer controlled and you MUST have an engine scanner to set the timing on that engine. A timing light will not work.
Check engine compression Check engine timing
It advances and retards the engine timing as needed.
The timing for this engine is electronically controlled and not adjustable
