Should be a plug all by itself close to the distributor, although since your ignition module is close to your air box it probably is to. Should be orange/yellow I think.

No, all it is is a jumper that allows the ecu to control advance and ****** functions of the ignition system. Pulling it allows you to set the base timing without the computer trying to compensate.

For your problem, and stuff in the future, $40 is good. I'm a DIY guy, and my low priced works awesome!!

It's been a LONG time since I've done this.... I'm sure someone can correct me if I'm wrong..... Step one, start car.... Step two, hook up timing light (can be done at any point really). Step three, pull spout connector and loosen distributor bolt enough so you can turn the distributor by hand (not much, only takes like a quarter to half a turn). Step four, with timing light, press button (pull trigger) and it will flash in pulses.... Shine down at balancer, you will see markings with numbers and lines, these are your degrees of timing. There is a metal indicator that looks like a pointer, that is your reference point for your timing. Whatever number is at the point, that's your base timing. Rotate distributor either way slightly and slowly and watch with your timing light. I believe your base timing should be 10 degrees, I think! You can advance to 12-14 degrees if your running premium gas, but if you set your timing and you here pinging under load that sounds like a rattle can, either back down timing (****** it) or put better gas in it. Once you've got your timing set, tighten distributor bolt and recheck, if it hasn't moved, replace your spout connector and go for a drive, listen for pinging, if none, good to go!

I mentioned it before, too much timing or too low octane gas.

That looks like a good one, but I think the cheaper one will be all you need.

Since you haven't gotten a light yet, was the car making the noise before you set the timing?

Of its whole you are accelerating it's more than likely the motor. Just be careful and don't drive much if it's doing it. It can cause damage to the motor. If you're already running premium gas, you definitely need to check your timing.

Crawl under it. Wipe it down and find the degree you're looking for. Get some kinda fine tip white (or bright color) paint pen and make a line.

Yeah, the coloring is highly recommended and a great idea!

When it makes that sound... If its coming from the engine, it's a thing called detonation, it happens in the cylinder. It's basically a pre ignition when it's not supposed to happen. It can lead to piston and cylinder wall damage.
