Theres ignition timing and crank + cam timing.DavePont said:can anybody tell me anything about timing stuff? I dont even know what it is, and what it does!!
Not necessarily.daddyd5150 said:If my timing was off wouldn't my car run bad?
I don't think it matters. However the sticker on the firewall near the brake booster says to check the timing with the tranny in neutral.Rasco said:Does the car have to be in neutral when I'm adjusting the timing or is it ok to leave the shifter in park?
Correct.I read somewhere that I needed to align the marks so I took the timing belt and reinstalled everything. Crank Pulley set at the "0" mark and the got the cam pulley hole aligned too. Is this right?
Something is definitely out of whack. The engine should run fine with the ignition timing set at 10 degrees BTDC, which is the stock setting.Whats wrong with the car? Did I set the cam and crank position right? Or did the shop install the camshafts wrong?
