Hello I will help you with your question,

 

Here is the procedure to set the ignition timing, let me know if you meant cam timing

 

Start engine and allow it to warm up until the radiator fan cycles on and off once.

Service Check Connector And Data Link Connector

2) Locate the Service Check Connector behind the right kick panel, and connect the BLK and BRN wires with a jumper wire.

Connecting Timing Light To Ignition Wire

3) Connect a timing light to #1 Ignition Cable and aim it at the pointer on the timing belt cover near the crankshaft pulley.
4) Ignition timing must be checked at the the proper idle speed as listed below.

(M/T)

16°±2°BTDC (RED MARK) at 670 ±50 rpm (USA)
16°±2°BTDC (RED MARK) at 750 ±50 rpm (CAN)

(A/T)

16°±2°BTDC (RED MARK) at 700 ±50 rpm (USA)
16°±2°BTDC (RED MARK) at 750 ±50 rpm (CAN)


NOTE: The White mark is Top Dead Center.

5) If timing is not correct, loosen the Distributor mounting bolts (2) and rotate the Distributor housing clockwise to retard or counter-clockwise to advance the timing.
