I blew my head gasket and got everything back together but, I don't know if its timed right. I didn't take off the timing belt all the way. I only took it off the cam gears and didn't move on the crank. I noticed the notches on the cam gears but don't know how to line them up. I just wanna get it lined up just close enough to drive it somewhere to get it truly timed. If I can do that without bending the valves.

Re: Timing my 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GST
The timing marks on your crank and cam crank need to be one on top of the other if you understand what i mean. anyway if this is done correctly, your cam should make two revolutions to one of the crank thus after one full revolution of the crankshat gear your camshaft gear should do 2 revolutions and you timing marks should be next to one another

You have to have a thermostat in the system. Have a compression test done to check for head gasket or cracked head/s. Check the flow rate of the radiator ( blocked cores) check the condition of the cooling fins on the radiator. Check the radiator cap. Check if the fan is working when hot.. If you have a viscous fan hub on the fan then replace it . run the fault codes to check for air/fuel problems . Check for load and speed conditions as high speed when fully loaded will cause your problem . Check that it is actually engaging over drive and not over reving the engine.
The 1,2,3,4 preset buttons on your radio toggle up only through the
digits 0-9. The 1 preset button is the first digit holder, and so on for
the 4 digit code. If you go too far just keep pressing the button, and
it will go back to 0, and you can get back to the right number. If your
unlock code has a 0 in it you have to press the button once to get to 0.
It starts with a dash (-). This doesn't count as the 0. For instance if
your unlock code is 0873, you will press preset 1 once, preset 2 9x,
preset 3 8x, and preset 4 4x. Once you have the correct number in the display press the "CD" button, and it will unlock your radio. If you
didn't do it right, it will display "ERR1" before going back to the
"CODE" display. Don't mess up more than twice. After the third failed
try things get a lot more complicated. Good Luck Tim
This is the direct definition of this code Mitsubishi DTC P1390 - Timing Belt Skipped 1 Tooth or More. Probable Causes, -Timing belt improperly installed -Camshaft position sensor improperly installed -Camshaft position sensor connector improperly connected -Crankshaft position sensor connector improperly connected -Camshaft's relative position not relearned after one of the following have been serviced: Camshaft, Camshaft sprocket, timing belt tension-er, cylinder head, head gasket, crankshaft sprocket, crankshaft cylinder block or the PCM.
Sounds like something to do with the timing belt it self. You can go to any Autozone or Checker and ask for a code reader (they will let you use it for free) and it will show this code again. You can also reset the cars computer with the code reader to see if it comes back with the same code.
usually when you get white smoke its because ur head gasket blew mixing antifreeze and engine oil look at ur oil and see if its a milky white color.car will not start beacuse ur loosing compression threw the gasket blowing..
