Best Answer

The "Check Engine" light means that the computer has stored a fault code. You need to use a code scanner to read the fault code. Code scanners can be borrowed, rented or purchased at most auto parts retail stores.

How do you set cam timing marks on a 1993 Nissan navara v6?

<p>to set top dead center of any engine you disconnect the spark plug lead on cylinder 1 and connect a timing light then turn over the engine by hand until the timing light lights and to check that it is top dead center look at the timing mark and pointer on the harmonic ballancer that the pointer is at the 0 mark (removing all plugs will make turning the engine easier)If you do not have a timing light you can use a 12 volt globe between the plug lead and earth. Good luck.<p>

How do i set the timing if i didn't mark the distributor on a 1996 350 vortec?

The timing on that engine is controled by the computer. You can not use a timing light. The only thing you can do is move the distributor enough to get the engine to run and have power and that is called the base timing. When it does run and the engine light is not on then you got lucky, but if the check engine light comes on, then you will have to get an engine scanner and hook it up and go into the timing mode and move the distributor until you get the cam and crank in time. The scanner will show you when it is in time and the engine light will go off. Tighten distributor and your done. The computer will do the rest.
