Ok I'm a bit confused. I have a 1994 KA24E 2.4L 4x4 and my Haynes manual says that after 1990, you cannot adjust the timing on the engine since it's controlled by the ECU. The service manual makes no mention of how to adjust the timing but yet my distributor has a slot where it's bolted on so that it can be rotated for an adjustment.

Can someone set me straight? Is the Haynes manual incorrect or is it referring to a different engine model?

If i can adjust the timing, what is the proper procedure? Is it described in the service manual somewhere?

Codes are clean...The engine just lacks power...It seems to hit a wall right at 3,000rpm and always has since i got it. The engine gets really loud and rough. It doesn't misfire or anything. I've tried new plugs, i've cleaned the MAF, i've checked for vacuum leaks....no dice. I figured maybe the timing is off.

It has 170k on it. It certainly doesn't misfire...it just feel very anemic at or above 3,000rpm. It's completely unusable and i get looks from people if i rev it that high to make it up a hill...

How would the AIV affect this?

Is that called the PAIR case as well? That's the only thing i see there in my diagram...

As far as the timing chain...It's not rattling so why fix what aint broken? I don't know if it's ever been done. I bought the truck used in fairly good shape.
