Hi Mart123,
The ignition timing for most Toyota's is set at 10 degrees before TDC....To be able to set it, you'll need to open the diagnostic socket, which you'll find inside the engine compartment....Make up a bridge....(a piece of wire which should have a connector on each end....but you can use a wire without the connector if you want to.....Just make sure that there are no strands which can short out when you plug it in)'ll see a directory of the available connections on the inside of the lid of the diagnostic plug housing....Bridge between 'T' and 'E1'....this will give you the on board diagnostic read out fr and allow the adjustment of the ignition timing....
om the engine check light from the instrument panel.....To set the timing, mark the notch on the crank shaft pulley and it's also useful to mark the 10 degree's on the scale.... use a strobe light and run the engine at idle speed ad then set....

Best regards Johngee10

I replaced the head on my tercel but have never adjusted lifters and cant seem to find it in the book if you could let me know how

If it's not in the haynes manual you will need a factory workshop manual OR google tercel froums, the members there may have a procedure for the initial valve clearance lash, of course being hydralic lifters you would only have to do this once. HOWEVER if s professional shop rebuilt the head then the clearances should already be set by them.

Timing chain for 95 toyota tercel 1.5 i need to know how to adjust it.

There's a lot of things to consider in adjusting the timing chain.Under the present situation, you need to have an electronic timing set or the mechanical timing light. Feeler gage to adjust valve clearances of your
engine. You need to buy these necessary equipments before you can
adjust the timing chain. The cost of buying these equipments maybe
more than the cost of having your car serviced by qualified mechanics.
So allow me to suggest that you bring your car at the service center,
wherein you can claim a service warranty.

1999 Tercel. Timing belt/water pump interval change?

Hello tinaromano1: The factory specification are to replace the belt every 90,000 miles in severe service. I would recommend to replace at 90,000 no matter what the service would be. Keep in mind should the belt break there is always a chance engine damage may occur. Should you need further help just ask. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger
