Setting Timing - '93 Taurus 3.0 Vulcan
3.0 Vulcan in 1993 Taurus GL
During an intake manifold replacement I (of course) had to pull the distributor. Got it back in and the car starts but seems a bit more sluggish, as if ther tiiming is retarded.
There are remarks about timing on the underhood sticker that's just above the radiator, saying essentially: " Check the timing by disconnecting the SPOUT connector. If the timing is not 10 deg. BTDC then consult shop manual."
Would you check the timing with a strobe type timing light? If I had a shop manual, what would it say about how to deal with this if it's not 10 deg. BTDC??
Thanks for any insights!
