You cant just plug a timing light in and check it, you need to have the car in diagnostic mode. Read the sticky at the top of the workshop, it is explained there.

Buy a Gregories manual...its the best investment you spend on your car...especially, as you say, to avoid a workshop....

It tells you how to do everything, including running diagntostic mode, and listing all the fault codes...
