    Thanks

    we had 4 people now look at the timing belt no teeth are missing, it is in real good condition to be 9 yrs old. There is NO FIRE coming from one of the coils, where it hooks up to the spark plugs My car has 2. So I found a foregin car machanic and he is going to finish checking everything tomorrow and put something on it to see if it has a code. So, I can get my car back running.



    Thanks for your help

    check all 3-4 fuel filters as well as checking the fuel hoses.
    check that the high voltage coil is still working.


    Worst case, the E.C.U. has died.

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)

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.

2000 Mitsubishi Galant 4 cyl ES underhood squeal on right side


The probable causes are: 1. The drive belts are slipping. 2. The drive pulleys for some engine accessories are misaligned. 3. You have turned the steering wheel to the limits. 4. The drive belts are loose.5. Your brake drum backing plates are rubbing against the brake drum. The brakes also might be a problem. check the brake drums/discs. Finally check your wheel and wheel alignment.
