Question about Mitsubishi Eclipse
Lost car on highway due to broken timing belt. Bought lower mileage engine new timing kit and many more extras. belt stripped teeth after 6k worth of driving. The mechanic who installed says he doesn't know why it stripped teeth. To car back right after work was done and he never figured out that something was wrong with timing belt. What should i do?

Sorry for the severe delay.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered question.
I do not know if you still need the answer, but I am going to answer it in case you still do.
The Front Oil Seal must be replaced when the Timing Belt/Chain is replaced. It is located behind the Crankshaft Pulley on the Crankshaft.

check for corrosion on the sparkplug wires, both ends. Crankshaft position sensor, cam position sensor and lastly, gulp, the ignition control module..

Not sure if it's interference or not, but even if it is that doesn't mean you have damaged the engine. It is worth a few bucks for a belt if you can do the labor yourself. If you want to try, I can probably send you instructions. Lemme know.

This presents a very unique and interesting problem.......the work originally performed on the vehicle is suspect, as the first instance of the vehcile slowing down, is very very very similar to a catastrophic engine drama, like a timing belt breaking, or if it did "skip" a tooth, WHY.......a timing belt does not skip a tooth unless it was not properly tensioned in the first place, or there is a problem with the camshaft or cranshaft gears themselves which would cause this.......so I am extremely cautious on their diagnosis of nothing being wrong......
As well as this
The 2.0 Liter SOHC and DOHC engines used in the Neon are interference engines. if the timing belt broke while driving there is about a 6 in 10 chance a valve came in contact with the piston. The only way to know for sure is to replace the belt and perform a compression check to see if any valves are not sealing, so I would ask them whether this was performed or not.
