What are the symptoms of a bad timing on a 1988 Lincoln Town Car
Car had some repairs done; electrical and timing. A week later engine wont turn
over! Bad smells from the exhausted and car stalled on owner several times!
Way out of time, backfiring, (if it runs at all), lesser mistime, poor acceleration, missing, poor gas mileage and. as you describe, distinct odor of unburnt hydrocarbons especially if it's too retarded, if too advanced, hard start, Should be 10 degrees btdc, and timing will not prevent it from turning over
