Ignition Timing Advance #1 Cylinder

2012 Hyundai Tucson GL 2.0L (B) 5-spd (M5GF1)

Good day, and a thank god it's Friday to All, I have a question should my ignition timing advance #1 cylinder be the same as my CVVT Timing readout on my scan tool data pids this vehicle is a 2012 2.0 Kia Tucson with a low power complaint and no codes. The only thing I have noticed is that the cvvt timing degrees stays between 127 to 95 degrees with the accelerator pedal to the floor with the vehicle in drive and at the same time the ignition timing advance #1 cylinder is moving between 20 to 30 degrees. If ignition timing advance #1 cylinder is the timing degrees the ECM wants to see shouldn't the VVT Timing follow on acceleration. I hope I am explaining this correctly thanks for any help?

Just a little information for you. I looked at buying a 2016 Kia Soul this week from an auction. Was in perfect condition with 84k miles. But, it said mechanical failure. Typically engine problems. After doing some research, Kia/Hyundai had huge problems with their engines, mostly 2.0's, … It was so bad the US government sued them and forced them to replace engines. Apparently they run…

Sorry, I am just asking if my VVT degrees readings and my ignition timing degrees readings should be the same with my foot on the gas while driving the car?

Why would there be any direct correlation between ignition and valve timing? Asking this question doesn't make any sense to me, so maybe I am not understanding.

Ignition timing and valve timing are two different ways to time an engine. Iignition timing is your base timing. Valve timing is variable so it allows the engine to have bottom end and top end power.
