    engine timing different between automatic and manual tranny?

    i read in the a4ld to 5 speed thread in the tech library at the end of it said to make sure to re time the engine, as the manual and automatic use different timing. is this true? and if so why is that? the “auto trans timing” on the 2.9 is 10° i believe.
  6. Engine rebuild gone wrong

    Happy new year! I have a problem and wanted to ping TRS before proceeding further. Bottom line: Rebuilt my 1999 4.0 OHV engine, fired it up the first time and it ran smooth as silk. Now it's not running at all. Think I narrowed it down to timing...maybe the gas is old and went bad? Now it's...

    I have a 1998 Ranger v6 3.0 automatic which I bought last year. It ran rough at first with shaking and then when it warmed up, fired on all six. There was also an engine code P0302 (misfire on #2). I just replaced the plugs and wires and the old plugs looked like they had a .100 gap (all...
