1995 Mitsubishi Mirage breaking flexplates

I bought a 1995 Mitsubishi Mirage with a broken flexplate., which made a loud clanging noise when it ran. The lady I bought it off of said it had a motor put in it, and it has broke 2 flexplates since then, and she wasn't putting any more money into the car. I pulled the transmission and it was broke in all 3 corners where it bolts to the torque converter/flywheel. I think that maybe they have been putting it on backwards, or not getting it properly aligned between the crank and the torque converter. My question is...Which direction does it go on? And does it need to go on as to put the crank and the torque converter in relationship with each other? It has the 1.5 liter engine with automatic trans. I don't want to put it back together until I'm sure how it goes on. and I can't find this information anywhere. One side of the flexplate is hooved out in the center where it bolts up to the end of the crankshaft. I don't know if that side should be toward the crank or the torque converter

The dish in the center of the flexplate should protrude tword the engine, also check for excessive torque convertor run out, as that can crack the flexplate

Why are only two cylinders firing on my 1995 mitsubishi mirage

It sounds more like the electrical connections are disrupted. Did you replace the entire plug wires? They do fail after a few years in use, and the older carbon wires especially go down.

Anytime you replace a sensor or ignition parts on a Mitsubishi, (also have a 95 Mirage) the whole **** thing goes out of whack and won't start. Have to reset the ECC (ECM) supposedly by allowing it to drain of juice (disconnect both battery cables for about a day) See if this works for you

Got a 95 mitsubishi galant 4 cil starter/flywheel noise

If this noise is really loud you will need to replace the flywheel or flexplate (if automatic transmission it is called a flexplate) and the starter, both of the gears that drive the engine rotation during start up are damaged. This damage is likely due to a bent or cracked flexplate if it is a auto transmission or a defective starter engagement drive, this causes the starter motor gear to not fully engage the flywheel gear teeth and causes damage, the damaged death cause the loud noise you here when you start the car. No matter the cause of this there is only one fix, a new flywheel or flexplate and a new starter.

1998 mitsubishi mirage wont start?

check if the fuel pump is working, if you have someone near the tank and someone else crank motor you should be able to hear a bzzzzzz rom the tank from the pump. if no noise is heard then hit or thump the tank, this can make a fuel pump start to work again, if it starts, then the pump is almost dead

Mitsubishi mirage 1.5 dohc, ticking noise when started from cold, goes away after 2 mins??

If it's not a loud ticking noise, it could be your lifters or valve pushers, which would mean your oil is too thick to get there when it's cold. Change your oil viscosity to a lower indice (if it's 10W30 go with 5W30 for example) and let me know what happens.
