OK guys. I've set and reset the timing. The shop set it "by the computer" and it's worse. So, with the cam pulley bolt and pointer aligned with the aux shaft bolt (as noted in cam timing article), the distributor at #1, the crank should be set at 0*? Then I get the beast to start.. adjust the distributor to 10-12* BTDC.. tighten the distributor bolt.. shut off vehicle and re-insert spout. Correct? And if the beast still starts good when cold, but hard to start when hot.... WHAT NOW?

Well, if you have the timing set properly and you're still having start problems I would start looking at ignition components. Something may be getting weak.

Les,
If it starts fine cold then it is not a timing issue. I would pull the codes. It could be an ECT problem (is it connected, the one between 2 & 3 injectors). Could be a lot of other things that pulling the codes may spot

Only code I got so far is EGR (34). Does it act worse when hot?
