Hi ferndogg711

Here are the procedures.

IGNITION TIMING
1. Ensure engine is at normal operating temperature. Turn off all accessories. Connect inductive timing light to No. 1 spark plug wire. Start engine and allow it to idle. Connect a jumper wire between terminals GND and ENG TEST of Data Link Connector (DLC). Check ignition timing. Timing mark on crankshaft pulley and mark on timing belt cover should be aligned to specification.

BASE IGNITION TIMING
Degrees @ Idle

1.6L & 1.8L = 9-11 BTDC

2. If timing is not within specification, loosen distributor hold-down bolts and rotate distributor base to adjust. Recheck timing and tighten distributor hold-down bolts to 14-19 ft. Lbs. (19-26 N.M).
