Question about 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Was driving down the freeway when I felt a small hiccup in the car and immediately lost power. I immediately assumed that I may have let it run on low oil too long but upon review I had enough oil for that not to have been the problem. When looking at the cams I believe that I may have thrown a timing belt, something a mechanic friend of mine agrees with, when I try to turn it over there is sound but the engine does not move. My question is if I threw the timing belt, is the engine a interference or non-interference engine? How can I find out short of replacing everything?

I have replaced the camshaft sensor, Crankshaft sencor, computer, crankshaft pully, and new spark plugs on my 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse and it still won't start, what could it be?

Engine needs spark, fuel and air to run. I assume the starter is turning the engine over. Have you verified you have spark at the plugs? Have you verified you have fuel pressure? Can you hear the fuel pump when you first turn the ignition key? If, yes to those, check the timing belt settings to make sure something hasn't caused the timing to change.

AutoZone will have OBDII readers that you can plug in to the OBDII port, that you can rent. However ... that clicking sound makes it a different story. Pull off the battery, grab some sand paper, and sand down the terminals of the battery, and sand down the internal connector terminals that go onto the battery. Make sure the ground wire is tight, and the starter (positive) wire is tight in the terminal, as well as on the starter. Now, go ahead and put the terminal back on, and get it on tight. See if it starts.

The horn, heater fan and door locks all stopped working in my 2000 eclipse

Same problem with 2003 Lancer and what's strange is that I was driving down the freeway and it worked for a few minutes. But only for a few minutes and never since. I am checking my blower resistor and it looks like it could be damaged. When I get that replaced, I will work on the other problems and let you know. Have you checked all the relays and fuses?
