What are the signs of the distributor being off a tooth, or more? Ever since ive got my car, it has been a pain in the butt to time. I will have it running, get it sounding great, then I shut it off, and restart, and the engine will not turn over..... it acts as if there is a dead battery..... going crank...crank.....crunk. Then I turn the distributor, and it fires right up. Also, I believe my right bank is burning some oil..... I know nothing about this engine, and I do not know if it has the stock cam in it or not. I do not have a timing light. Also, when I get it in time, sometimes it seems to "re-adjust" itself, and go's out of time a lot. What is the deal? Distributor off a tooth? Bad timing chain? I need help here guys..... Don't make me pull my motor!
