Welcome to JA!That code could indicate a problem with the Mass Air Flow Sensor / Dirty Fuel Injectors / An Exhaust Leak Before an O2 Sensor or a failing O2 Sensor :) Thats where I would start. Please let me know after you have checked these items :)
Thank you for your reply. This car does not have a MAF sensor, already checked injectors, not sure about O2sensor, Will check that as time allows this evening..
also forgot to include in my original question, that at norm operating temp with the car at idle has the timing jumping from -6deg to 22deg adv with the RPM ranging from 645 to 870ish.
That would be because of the Fuel issue. Its adjusting the timing to compensate for the fuel delivery.
Here is a technical description of that fault code. I accidentally entered a wrong engine the first time so I apologize for that.

ok per your attachment here are the results
coolant sensor has normal readings with engine both cold and warm, no engine mechanical issues, fuel pressure at 47psi., upstream O2 sensor checked out good both cold and hot. Pulled the fuel rail and pressurized the system, the injectors do not leak. with this information do you still learn toward a fuel issue? Or are you thinking its a timing issue? such as its off just enough to have the intake valves not open during the correct portion of the intake stroke? I am asking this because the engine ran good until I changed the water pump and timing belt.
It is possible to have placed the timing a tooth or two off yes :) And that would cause the problem.
yes it does now seem to be a timing issue. I advanced the crankshaft one tooth placed the belt back on and ran the car through a heat cycle. still had the timing jumping around a little but that and the RPM were not fluctuating as much as before. I am gonna play with the timing through out the day. I will respond with result and your rating this evening as time allows
now I am getting a P0700 code. the tranny has been in park with the car on jack stands now for a couple weeks so not sure what would cause that. gonna have to recheck to make sure everything is plugged in. if I want to do a ready test how can I go about that? the car is currently out of inspection in my state. Can I do this with the car stationary?
Here is the timing guide if you need it :)
And here is some info on that trouble code. I think the code will clear and off after the car has run for a while :)
Keep me posted :)
TY :) that attachment for the timing guide was just what I needed.. I have several pics of the same thing but with out that line going across the cam gears... as soon as I saw that I Was like wait a minute.. went back to the car saw that I was misaligned. Reset cam marks per your info restarted the car and its like a diff engine. TY again very much.. as far as that TC: P0700 it was gone the next time I ran the engine, was like a one time thing.
one last question would be do you know of a way to shortcut the drive cycle. if I do a readiness test, I still have several monitors that have not reset yet. as the car is currently out of inspection I am not sure if I wanna be driving it around for 3 or 4 days to complete the drive cycle. again thank you for your information.
