Adjust engine timing

On what vehicle? Most cars have electronic controlled timing. You cannot adjust the timing. You can however realign the camshaft timing however this will require access to the timing belt and knowledge of how to align the timing marks as well as how to move the belt. If it has indeed jumped timing then the belt probably does need replacing.

How to adjust timing belt

The Timing is computer controlled. You would need a computer with the Dodge factory interface and the connectors that hook it to your car to adjust the timing. If the timing belt has been changed and it was installed a tooth or two off it will need to be removed and installed correctly.

Ignition timing for suzuki vitara

A LOT depends on WHICH ENGINE your 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara is equipped with.Ignition timing is not adjustable on any engine except the 2.5L V-6.
To adjust the ignition timing on the 2.5L V-6, a scan tool must be used to turn off the computer timing control to check and adjust base ignition timing. Base ignition timing specification is 4-6 degrees BTDC.

Just replaced timing sprockets and chain,cover and water pump and the trucks timing is off just a hair, how can i adjust it by the distributor? 1997 dodge 1500 ram 4x4 360 moter

Do not attempt to adjust timing via the distributor. Timing is PCM controlled and is not manually adjustable. Base timing must be set with a factory scan tool when the distributor is locked in. If you attempt to adjust it with the vehicle running, you'll notice nothing changes, but when you shut it off and go to crank it later, it will not crank because the PCM has lost base timing.

Basically, you're going to have to go back and fix your timing problem by redoing your previous repair.

Also, spark timing is different than engine timing so that would only mask the engine timing problem, not actually fix it.

How to adjust engine timing with new timing belt installed.

If you installed the timing belt correctly, you won't need to adjust the timing. If your timing is incorrect after doing the belt, you'll need to remove the belt again and install it with the cam and crank marks lined up properly.
