Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse
I replaced the headgasket on a 2001 mitsubishi eclipse 2.4. now the car sounds like it wants to start but it wont completely crank over. Am I missing something? need help
Hello, looking at the response from my colleagues I feel possibly they and you are looking in the wrong area.
You say it won't completely crank over? I hope you mean turn over manually by rotating the crankshaft pulley with a knuckle bar and not trying to turn over on the key?
Whenever I do a cambelt or head/gasket change to make certain I've got the cam timing correct I rotate the engine through 360 degrees to make sure! if it isn't correct the pistons will hit the valves and not Crank over completely as you put it.
So I would see if the timing mark on the Crank pulley, cam and if diesel pump align correctly.
Good luck! I hope this sorts your problem? if so please remember press that Blue Fixya button to appraise my FREE effort's.
