Re: Advancing Timing
Your vehicle timing is controlled by a computer. If you do not have a vast knowlwdge of the system, no timing changes are recommended. Now, the timing is advanced by turning the distributor. It does cause the spark to occur earlier. It should already fire about 10 degrees of crankshaft raotation before the piston is at top dead center. This is because it takes time for the fuel to ignite and expand. The timing advances at higher RPM's because the piston is moving faster, but the fuel always burns at the same rate. Unless you have made certain mods to your engine, you have no need to adv. your timing.
