Timing is critical in so many things in life. The right time to buy, the right time to sell and timing traffic lights to hit all green. These are the common timing issues we face. What we may not think about is how important timing is to our engines. Technically, it is life and death for the the engine. If timing is wrong, the engine fails. The engine has to suck in air, add fuel, place it in the correct cylinder, close the cylinder, spark only under compression, and breathe out the waste air, all in the blink of an eye. If any one of those occurs incorrectly, the engine cannot run. Here is what you need to know to keep the timing right in your vehicle.
