Timing is controlled by the computer so you cant change it. Chances are there is another problem. If the timing looks out it is probably just another slipped balancer giving you a false TDC reference.

Maybe try the diagnostics? Since it's controlled by the ECU, I'd be guessing one of the sensors it uses is discconnected or broken maybe?

You cant change the timing on an EF. They are pretty much fixed.

How did you check it, while the car is just idling in normal mode, or in test mode? Normal mode will show it is out by 10 or so degrees as that is basic idle advance.

If its missing, it could be the crank sensor, cam sensor or coil pack having a fit. Even a dodgy lean. I think its usually the crank sensor is the first one to suspect. It could be the balancer has spun, but thats pretty rare on an EF or EL.

Firstly pull the codes from the ECU and see if one of the sensors is bung.

Thanks for the help guys.
