Default How-to: Timing Check and Adjustment

Difficulty: Easy (anyone can do it and basic hand tools needed)

Time: 30 minutes

Tools: Timing light and wrench or socket to loosen and tighten distributor bolt

Summary: How to check the timing on the '00 to '04 Nissan Xterra VG33E Engine





Comments: I'll edit this as soon as I get the info on the exact wrench/socket size and/or specialty tool to loosen the distributor bolt
