89 would check the amount of slack in the timing chain~ and replace tensioner shoe, sprockets and chain~

the distributor is driven off of this chain....slack chain = retarded spark...I knew that is was time for a tow when the distributor stopped turning~ and was a pretty big job, replacing the headgasket seals sprockets and tensioner...but can be done...if the mileage is such that it's time a long time ago~
