  1. Can Anyone Tell me why my truck does this when i jumper A n B

    2.5L - 1st gen 4-banging
    In reference to setting the timing on my 92 2.5 4 cyl, why when I jumper A n B the vehicle will cut off? If I recall correctly, even if I jumper then start up the truck won't want to stay running and I turned the dizzy in small increments both directions some and it still wouldn't stay running...

    lol no problem only thing though, why when I jumper A n B the vehicle will cut off? If I recall correctly, even if I jumper then start up the truck won't want to stay running and I turned the dizzy in small increments both directions some and it still wouldn't stay running. If I take the jumper...

    i surely couldn't find it, none over there besides it being one but it was one that was on the harness that plugs into the computer and it was not a separate wire. I only see a solid brown wire over there that was not connected to anything. My cousin said he was sure that was a wire for the...
  4. 1st Gen 4.3L Distributor Pickup Coil Replacement

    S10 / S15
    I remember when i had my mustangs pickup replaced I swore the guy had to sort of press something off/on. Is the s 10's that much easier that it requires nothing really pressed? No pain in the butt moments with changing the coil?
  5. Setting Timing: Truck will cut off if I jumper A and B

    S10 / S15
    Ok i believe I understand it now. Do you by any chance know rather that brown and white wire on my truck would be the one that I found near the fuse panel and is plugged into a male spade connector is the correct one? That's the only one I found besides one that is plugged into the fuse box...
  6. Jumpering A n B to set timing, truck will cut off

    2.5L - 1st gen 4-banging
    Ok guys I finally got the truck to run, its running fairly decent but I know the timing is still off. 92 2.5 4 cylinder. By the light it's showing to run best at between 6 and 13 degrees but still sometimes want to cut off when coming to a stop though playing with it between 6 and 13 it's gotten...

    it should have been in my info because i set it before but it's a 2.5 4 cyl. I will update in original post too if i still can. will also see about the specific engine size though i thought this was the only one specific to s 10s. Will double check

    reading someone elses post from google, their vehicle was idling high among some other things . Well let me copy and paste: his first post: Hey guys! Got a random idle issue. Oh... '99 Astro, 4.3.... Start it up, whether it is cold or not, and sometimes it will idle high for a few seconds and...

    i just learned a lot this eve/night messing with this thing. I'm done for the day though and will mess with tommorow or friday. I got top dead center then pulled the dizzy as the rotor button was not at no. 1. I has limited lighting and it looked as if the base of the dizzy that the cap screws...

    was your dizzy bolt loose when it did that? Mine wasn't loose at all It appeared from looking at images last night that the balancer has one groove in it and you would ofcourse line that groove up with whereever on the timing marker you wanted to set the timing at right? Well last nite I didnt...

    I see how the balancer mark, marker works now. On my mustang it's just the opposite with the marker not having any marks and the balancer ofcourse being marked. Now I just have to research what to set the timing at . And yes I was correct by jumpering A and B and it being same thing as...

    today i looked on pass side and there was a brown wire that wasn't connected to anything, solid brown wire. I checked and checked everywhere and even on the comuter up and down and there was no spot for that connection. It had one pin connector or one pin inside the connector on the brown wire...

    i read up on some things on google and guys mentioned a wire that's under the pass side dash. I did see a wire the other day that was not connected and that might be the one that should have been connected but not sure. Anyway, the wire that they are talking about that you unplug to set the...

    does jumpering A and B ports do the same thing as unplugging the wire under the passenger side rug?
  18. setting timing without timing light

    S10 / S15
    can someone tell me the exact procedure using the timing light? I have set my timing on the mustang quite a bit so I know the terminology. Not sure which vacuum line from the dizzy you guys are referring to

    sorry just getting back, pc at work wouldn't load the link today. Yeah I drove it today but it still has an issue and it sort of sounds like how a vehicle sounds when it is out of time. I know how my mustang sounds when it is slightly off as I have set the timing on it a good bit. Now I just...

    S10 / S15
    i remember years and years ago probably after i had head work or something done, the truck wasn't running right and i took it by this guy and he set the timing and it from that day drove much much better. I'm guessing the only way it could get out of time is it the timing chain has stretched...
