Question about 1997 Mitsubishi Galant
My 2000 mitsubishi galant es went dead. motor will turn over, but will not start. The timing belt is fine, drive belt good, fuel pump and fuel pump relay are coming on. spark plugs are new all fuses are good, under hood and under dash.
does any one know what the problem may be .
there is no mitsubishi dealer or machanics where i live
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)
