Question about 1999 Mitsubishi Mirage

1 Answer

1999 Mitsubishi mirage runs really bad after timing belt.

I purchased this car after a timing belt job had gone bad. I have had the head redone at a local machine shop with new valves and seals. The car still barely runs after doing all this. I have good compression, timing marks are right, i have spark, and fuel pressure but still runs really bad. Any clue?

1995 mitsubishi mirage engine wobbles and dies after heating up.

It could be that the valves need adjusting or redone. When they heat up it swells the rubber and the metal. If you have a bent valve it should do it all the time or it could be one of the valve springs is going. Either way it sounds like it is something in the valve or the valve seats or the springs.

Where is the water pump located on a 1999 mitsubishi mirage?

The best bet is is for you to buy a Haynes manual for your car. Try autozone; generally available for around $20.

I am not familar with your specific car/ngine but I am familar with Lits in general. I believe your engine is tranvese mounted which means the fan belts are located on one end of the engine (left or right). The water pump is powered by a fan belt so go to the end with the fan belts. You should have an alternator, power steerring, air conditioning and crank shaft pulley that the belts run on. There should aslo be a pulley for the water pump. use the process of elimination to ID the water pump.
