Re: 1995 honda civic dx timing
Get a real shop manual.
Read and follow that manual.
It will have instructions for not only solving your timing dilemma, but also tell how to properly set tension for the timing belt.
Revisit your timing belt job.
You can't just go by shoving the belt on the pulleys and hoping for the best...(FYI: You missed.)
The pulleys MUST be timed to be in the correct relationship to each other.
There are actual timing marks to use.
Check all the timing marks.
A tooth off is a tooth off, no matter how much you want to think it was "right".
It will run like poop at one tooth off.
Big poop at 2 teeth.
Maybe not run at all at 4 teeth off.
Bending valves comes next.
You should NEVER EVER need to adjust the distributor. Ignition timing does not change throughout the life of the engine unless there is another problem somewhere else.
