If your timing is off by 4 degrees it might be time to check your timing chain.
Rotate the crankshaft back & forth & watch the distributor rotor to see how much slack is in the chain. If there is a big lag between when you start rotating the crank the opposite direction, (big socket on the crankshaft damper bolt), & when the rotor starts to move, it's time to replace the chain & gears.
Stock cam gears are plastic & are known to wear out fairly fast. Sometimes around 40-50 thousand miles. Replace with a good double roller set with a steel cam gear.
