Hello,

Can anyone please tell me what spec my timing has to be set to (1992 5.7L 350 L05)??

Also, I heard that my car has a self-adjusting idle. What is that and can I still adjsut mi idle manually since I feel that the car can idle better than it does now...

Thanks again!

It says what the timing has to be set at on a sticker under the hood. There's a plug that you have to unplug when you check it. I don't know about the idle. I think on that sticker it says the car adjusts it automatically so if it's not idling right it probably means there's something wrong.

It's quite easy. Look at the large wiring bundle that runs infront of the heater box. It's at least an inch wide. Very big! There should be a tan and black wire that breaks out of it, goes through a small connector, then re-enters the harness. Turn the car off, unplug this connector, then set the timing to 0 degrees. That's right, 0 degrees. Shut car off, re-plug connector, and fire it back up.

As for your idle, setting the timing properly will allow the computer to maintain the best idle. Don't try to change it without settting the timing first.

Does this car have the "Idle Learn Proceedure" like the HT4900 does?

Basically you start it, when warm, idle in D for 1min, AC off.
Idle in D for 1 min AC on

I think that was the main part, there was more detail to go in if there was problems or it isn't in spec.

My service manual was pretty vague about it, all it did was told me to follow the emissions sticker instructions to a T. I did, worked great.
