1.6L Engine



This engine is equipped with a Distributorless Ignition System (DIS). All timing functions are controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). No adjustment is possible.

2.0L & 2.5L Engines




NOTE
The 2.0L and 2.5L engines use a Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor that is rotated to set base timing.

  1. Adjust the ignition timing as follows:
    1. Loosen the camshaft position (CMP) sensor housing bolt (2).

      Rotate the CMP sensor housing (1) clockwise in order to advance the timing.
       
      Rotate the CMP sensor housing (1) counterclockwise in order to retard the ignition timing.

    2.  
    3. Tighten the CMP sensor housing bolt (2).
    4.  
    5. Review the ignition timing with the timing light as in step 9.
    6.  

  2.  
  3. Repeat step 11 if the timing marks are not correctly aligned.
  4.  
  5. Tighten the CMP sensor housing bolt (2) to the correct value. Tighten the CMP sensor housing bolt to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm).
  6.  
  7. Inspect with the timing light (3) that the crankshaft pulley mark (2) and the timing pointer (1) are still correctly aligned.
  8.  
  9. TURN OFF the Fixed Spark mode with the scan tool.
  10.  
  11. Observe the timing marks with the timing light.
  12.  
  13. On the 2.0L engine, the crankshaft pulley mark should now be approximately 13 mm (0.5 inch) to the left of the timing pointer, indicating normal operation.
  14.  
  15. On the 2.5L engine, the crankshaft pulley mark should now be approximately 10-13 mm (0.4-0.5 inch) to the left of the timing pointer, indicating normal operation.
  16.  
  17. On the 2.5L engine, install the ignition coil cover to the bank 1 valve cover.
