use the old fasion method of the screw driver in no.1 cylinder and wind the motor over by hand when its at its highest mark the balencer and go from there.

but this will just tell you where TDC is? You need to get the car on a WDS to set the EDIS.

timing isn't locked at idle.
chance are it's fine, unless you have some other reason to believe the timing is wrong.

your timing might be showing thats its out as the ecu needs to be in diagnostic mode to read the timing.. although it wont matter anyway as the au ignition timing is non adjustable unless you have a flash tuner or some kind of tuning device..

Probably not timing if economy is real terrible. Check the 02 sensor.

He used the o2 sensor to do the tune so wouldnt that rule the 02 sensor out ??as thats what he used to get the reading.
or does it stil not rule that out ??
