I was driving home all of the sudden my car went off so I pulled over checked the engine and I saw that the timed belt was ripped off, I replaced it set it up but still wont start should I looked for some...


Do a compression check on the motor. If it seems to be turning over faster than it did before the timing belt break, you may have bent your valves in the machine head. With out fixing the valves and restoring compression the motor will not run.

How do i set timing on a 2000 mitsubishi galant


Try turning the crank pulley, get a ratchet with the socket to match the bolt of the pulley. When you're turning lessen for any noise or if you feel any friction when turning stop. try this with all spark plug out. If noise or friction is notice there is a problem but if it move smoothly then you're fine.

My 2000 mitsubishi galant es went dead, motor will turn over but


do you have spark? How do you know if your timing belt is good? sometimes it doesnt break just shed the teeth which could be missing under the crankshaft. The best way to check is to have two people. have one try to start the car and see if the camshaft is actually spinning. The crankshaft will always turn but if the teeth are gone on timing belt this would cause the belt to stay in one position not moving the camshaft. so if you can remove the upper timing belt cover and do this quick inspection with someone that will tell you for sure. if it does look like it is spinning then by hand turn engine very slowly with plug coil wires removed. and make sure teeth are all there. It couldve jumped timing. (valve timing)
