    Not an SC but still a bird

    my uncle has a 95 5.0 HO bird and his timing keeps advancing and he starts getting a pinging when rolling down the Highway. I dono much about it but its been well maintained for as long as hes had it. I know its hard to come up with a theory for finding a problem with little info so sorry about that.

    thnx n advance

    You will probably get more help posting your question over on TCCoA.Com in the 5.0 5.8 forum.

    but seriously, I'm guessing its a 91-93 since the 4.6 doesnt have a distrubuter

    unplug the spout and run the car with the distributor locked down.....


    stock ecu ramps in 16 of timing over the RPM range... is it starting to ping if he gets on it, or just cruising?
