Ignition Timing

Ignition Timing

In layman's terms, ignition timing is the delivery of the spark to ignite the fuel at the correct moment. The State of California requires that for applicable 1995 & older vehicles in Vista CA and Oceanside, that igniting timing be set per the manufacturer +/- 3 degrees unless otherwise specified on the under-hood label.
