Hi from the new guy and tech question
Posted 05 September 2003 - 01:04 AM
The tech issue I have is while waiting for my manual to get here for the newly aquired 95 liberty,it seems to have a slight timing issue,So to get it sorted I need to know the procedure and degrees to set the timing on it,like removing a TPS or similar.
By the way its a manual 2.2 2wd version.
Thanks in advance.

The ignition timing is controlled by the ECU and to my knowledge there is no way to adjust it.

What are your symptoms?

Also, you may have carbon build up, and it may be causing your pinging. If you can get a product down there called sea foam, I'd suggest using it to clean the carbon out. Alternatively, you may be able to find some other stuff or take it to a shop. If you want, take a read at this about letting the engine suck down some water.

The ignition timing can be altered - by 5 deg's, but only with the "Select monitor" - the diagnostic equipment used by the subaru dealers.

Might try some injector cleaner and resetting the ECU and see if that helps it out,plus start using some 98 RON fuel.
