Question about Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder
Hello all, I have a 2003 eclipse GS 102,*** miles. I was driving on the highway and pulled over to rest for 10 mins or so( I was tired) I left the car running to keep my son comfortable. About 5 mins into my rest the car shut off by its self. I tried to restart it but it wouldnt go. I waited 15 minutes and tried again. It tried to start but it wouldnt. i thought it may be bad fuel but I got it at the same place as I usually do. It made no noises or anything, it drove just fine until I stopped. I do the regualar checks and oil changes. Bought the car 2 yrs ago with 81,*** miles. I opened the oil cap and looked in while the wife tried to start it. Nothing moved(that I could see) and still wouldnt start. Any thoughts here? Timing belt broken? Bad fuel pump? Jason
Its quite possible that the timing belt broke. if broke the camshaft will not turn, and therefore no start of engine.

assuming the starter is good and the engine turn over fine but will not fire or run. when the car die, check why is it so hard to start. check if you getting sparks and fuel, no sparks check coil and wires,and if both are good than the cam sensor is bad, no fuel, check the fuel pump, pump good check the crank sensor.
