2.3i timing
Hi chaps

Know its been asked a few times and have searched the forums, just that i think i have found an 'issue' and want someone to confirm it or point me in the right direction.

On my 2.3 i understand i bridge terminals 2+4 to lock the timing and then use a strobe to set it to 6'. (as i understand it by bridging them, it doesnt allow the ECU to change the timing)

I found the 6 pin OBD plug ok, the only thing is, that plugged into the OBD plug there is another 6 pin plug (like the male half of a plug stuck into the female half)

On looking at it, pin 1,3,5+6 are blanked and 2+4 are bridged.

Would i be correct in saying the van i have just bought, has had the factory 'bridging/timing' plug left in by mistake and i am driving everywhere at 6' with no ECU timing variation or am i miles off?

Secondly, i am in the UK, know i am going to struggle getting an air filter over here but is there a common fuel filter from other makes/models i can use?

Cheers

Hi,

No that the plug out to set timing., that is a module for using unleaded fuel.

rest sounds fine,

I may be a mechanic, but i can't fix stupid

RE: 2.3i timing
Where does one find the "bridge" for setting the timing; any idea on the ECU pin numbers? Is it in fact a bridge or does it have a resistor of any value? I rebuilt my engine harness and might have omitted this if it is not part of the inline 6 pin diagnostic plug.
