1992 celica gts 5s-fe at...... I cant get my car to fire up. The only way it will is if the timing is advanced by far 17 or +. When it fires up i try and put back to 10 but when it comes close it idles low and quiet then dies. I put a post about my MAP sensor and it wasnt working but i got a new one and im getting the problem above. what could this mean?

only thing i can think of is the timing jumped, check your timing
