96 jimmy jumping against starter

07-18-2004, 04:49 PM
We just bought a 96 jimmy and it will not start it turns over but jumps against the starter. I pulled the timing chain cover off and every thing is in time. but looking at the distributor it appears to be firing slightly advanced. How do you adjust the timing on the distributor? I loosened it but you can not move the distributor. I am lost any suggestions??????????????????

could someone please just tell me how to set the timing on a 1996 Jimmy. you cant adjust the distributor by hand so i am thinking that it is set through the computer but i would really like to make sure.
