The timing is computer controlled and would not cause this problem, have u had a system trouble code test run? Kragen and Autozone will do this for free, another common issue is a failing fuel pump.

1996 tl keyless entry

Do you have a keyless entry FOB. If you do replace the battery then program the system. Unlock the doors turn the ignition key to the "ON" position then press either the lock or unlock button of the FOB turn the ignition key off.Now turn the ignition key on again and press either button on the FOB. Turn the ignition off again. Do this 3 times. This initiates programming for the power door locks. Press the lock button of each remote one at a time to be stored in memory. this must be done within 10 seconds of each remote.
3 remotes max. Turn the ignition off and remove the key to complete programming procedure. then test each remote.

I changed battery and now it dosnt work

You lost your program of the key module follow these instructions.

To Program a Remote for a VW
Put your good key in the ignition and turn to "ON", do not start the engine. Make sure all the remotes you want to use are present because they have to be programmed at the same time.
- Close the door and insert key #2 into the driver's side lock. Lock the door.
-Within 5 seconds of locking the door, press unlock 2 times on the new remote, key #2.
-(if this is remote #3, press unlock 3 times. if this is remote #4, press unlock 4 times).
-If there's a chirp or beep do not press it again. This means that the car has recognized the new keyless entry remote.
- Repeat with other remote or unlock the car and turn off - done.

The "change oil light" came on, on my 1996 buick roadmaster. i changed the oil but now how do i get the "change oil" light to turn off?

Turn key to "ON" position (NOT START). Press gas pedal smoothly and all the way to the floor 5 times. You'll need to do this in about 5 seconds. Light should go out. You may have to do this a few times but that's how it's done...Start car to double check.
Good Luck.
