Check of installation and adjustment of a corner of an advancing of ignition

Procedure described below is applicable to the majority of models of cars considered in the real Management. However, if VECI given on a label data differ from stated below, follow the instructions VECI.


1. Start the engine and warm up it to normal working temperature.

2. At the switched-off ignition find under a cowl a label of VECI and attentively familiarize with the instructions stated in it on укам a corner of an advancing of ignition. Special value has correctness of installation of turns of idling as frequency of rotation of the engine is directly connected with a corner of an advancing of ignition. Prepare all necessary tools (see an accompanying illustration):
   1. Vacuum jams – All disconnected vacuum hoses should be corked immediately. For this purpose jams of the various size and a configuration are issued.
   2. The stroboscope with inductive connection - Provides a pulsation of the bright, ostronapravlenny beam synchronized with the moments of an iskroobrazovaniye on electrodes of a spark plug of the first cylinder. It is connected to VV to a wire of a candle of the first cylinder in compliance by instructions of manufacturers.
   3. The special wrench – On some models access to a clamping bolt of the distributor is limited and its otdavaniye with application of a key of a usual form becomes the extremely inconvenient.

The reception inductive sensor of a lamp is established on VV a wire of a spark plug of the first cylinder (on all models counting of cylinders begins from a driving belt).

4. Find adjusting distributive labels on a forward cover and a pulley of a cranked shaft (see an accompanying illustration).

5. Find the 2-contact service socket under an overlay of a threshold of a forward passenger door of the car (see an accompanying illustration). At the switched-off ignition connect among themselves socket contacts by a wire crossing point.

6. Start the heated-up engine to normal working temperature and direct a stroboscope beam on the index on a forward cover of the engine.
7. Corresponding (see VECI label) from highlighted by a beam of a stroboscope of labels of a pulley of a cranked shaft, remaining motionless, it should appear combined with the index on a cover.
8. In case of need weaken three fixing bolts and correct position of the case of the distributor, achieving the correct combination of labels.
9. Tighten bolts and repeat check. Make sure that turns of idling of the engine did not change.
10. Muffle the engine and remove a stroboscope.
11. Establish into place a viewing stopper and remove a wire crossing point from the service socket.
