OBDtool questions.....ignition timing

651 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  AlwaysInBoost
I just got my obdtool the other day and I hooked it up to the car. One of the blocks is telling me that ignition timing is -6 degrees at idle. Is this correct? My o2 sensors are bad and it is telling me that the cat is faulty along with the evap system. If anybody knows whats going on, please let me know.

I highly doubt your timing is actually 6deg ATDC. You sure the -6 isn't just 6deg BTDC? 6deg initial advance and 36deg total advance sounds right.

That sounds right on to me
