    the timing belt replacement is at 80,000 miles. have the grage check that.

    if you want to, you can do that, open the valve cover. the timeing belt is in the front of engine, where all the pullies are. look at the belt or you can pull on it. it will come out if it is broken, in that case, you have to have the garage do the work, becasue the valves need to be rebuild.

    if not, then we hava to start looking for somethign else.

You need to tackle this logically. First of all the car has to have fuel and spark to ignite the fuel. You need to establish whether these are present or not. Then go along apporopriate route, fuel or spark.Secondly the spark has got to occur at the right time .There are simple checks you can do to find out if this happening.
To confirm sparks Remove one plug. recoonect lead , hold it in contact with the chassis and turn the engine,you should see spark jump across the plug gap. Dont hold lead with bear hands as it carries high voltage,use an insulated material to hold it in contact with chassis.
similarly you can disconnect fuel input to carbureter and turn engine to see petrol coming out.
Once these two facts are confirmed then it is timing of sparks that remains.
Hope this helps you to go in the right direction.

2007 mitsubishi lancer es sw what engine oil to use


Do you have a Driver's Manual for the vehicle? It could be Synthetic Oil or Conventional oil. Either one is ok, but the synthetic is better to have installed from the beginning and continue using. If your running conventional oil and switch to Synthetic, you may cause the engine to start leaking oil. because of this change. Once you determine the type oil , a good name brand 30wt oil is fine. Change oil and filter every 3000-5000 miles depending on your driving type. Freeway or city driving

It sounds like your EGR system is malfunctioning. EGR or Exaust Gas Recirculation is only supposed to be active when your on the throttle or driving down the road. If your EGR system is allowing any amount of exaust gas past it at idle, then it can cause very harsh idle or cause the car to die.
