<font color='#000000'>I have an 83 with a 22R-EC.  I noticed the engine pinging so I put a timing light on it and the timing had advanced its self about 10 degrees over the course of a month or so. I retarded the timing to the appropriate setting and the ping has gone away.  However there is a noticable loss in power and the vehicle idles irratically and surges while accelerating.  Whether or not this is related or not but the timing at idle is a little jumpy and the vehicle surges during acceleration. The vacuum advance isnt leakin and I've checked for the distributor rotor to be sticking or what not.  The fuel filter has been replaced recently but the timing light shows that the engines ignition timing is jumping around at or near idle.</font>
