Outlander 2003 timing belt broke?

After a few weeks of sluggish driving (like its out of gas), when I was driving down turnpike, it just stopped. Wont start and acts like it is backfiring when you try to start it.

    check and see if the belt turns when u crank the engine, verify the valve timing is correct, check the fuel pressure.

Its not broken yet but its stretched which is why it backfires like it does....if it were broken all it would do is spin and nothing more

Yes, it sounds like the timing belt has broken, you need to have a Mechanic install a new one.

This is a 4cyl diesel Beetle. The timing belt broke while driving. Dealer claims no damage done, replaced belt and car was driven for a few weeks. Began to start a bit sluggish, dealer said glowplugs...


my books show it as a interference engine in which case valve damage is most likely to occur
however if that was the case , it would be having a miss from the start and would not run 2 weeks before something happened
if a valve spring breaks there could be valve piston contact but it is doubtful if that would destroy the engine but again breaking valve springs is rather rare on diesel engines
the engine would not just quit but would rattle and bang it's head off then develope a big noisy miss from a hole in the piston
so I suspect a timing belt problem from when they removed/replaced the head after the glo-plug fix or a crank/cam shaft position sensor or wires ( possible faulty connections for the cam shaft)
I would suggest finding an accredited service center for a proper diagnosis and quote for engine repairs

2003 mitsubishi outlander died at stop light. wont start. turns over and has a full tank of gas. is getting fuel to engine.


very poss it could be crank sensor ,broken wire ? timing belt? advise installing scan tool that reads live data check eng rpm on scan tool see if shows eng rpm while cranking , poss remove upper timing belt cover make sure is turning and not damaged, poss computer related problem or power to eng systems would have to check for power at fuel injs and check for ground pulse with logic probe or led test light if crank sensor ok also check for spark at plugs with special plug tester and check codes first

Fan belt broke 2003 cavalier drove it another 10 miles and than it stopped. will i have to reset the timing when i replace the belt.


That will depend on why it stopped. If the engine seized because it overheated then your are going to have to do more than replace that timing belt. If it just shut down but still starts now that it is cooled down then no unless you timing belt broke. If it cranks but doesn't start now you have damaged something else in the engine when it over heated. Yo can do a compression check to see if your timing belt is broken.

2003 galant wont start


Your timing belt might have busted. Mine did that in November of 2007.... I had to replace 2 of the 4 cylinders, along with the timing belt and housing. Total cost was a little over $1700.00
