My timing belt went out and there might be a chance that one of the clyinders might miss fire. How would i fix that and can it b fix?
Well, lets see hear, last night i was pullin away from a traffic light and my car lost engine power and then stalled out on me. So i tried starting it back up and it wouldnt. I lefted the hood up and then tried again to start it back up but again no results. So i thought to myself that it might have no spark. so i tried wiggling the wires and still no start. now i'm thinkin my timing belt went out. so, i put my hand on that black cover over the timing belt and everytime i tried to crank it over i felted a knocking so. my question to you is when i get a new timing belt put on will it have a chance of not starting and if it do will there be a miss fire from one of the clyinders? And last of all questions can it be fix?

You don't say what engine is installed. If you have a 6-clyinder engine, it sounds as though the engine has jumped time. If the vehicle has over 50000 miles and the timing belt has not been replaced, it may have stripped some teeth and jumped time. This is bad for two reasons. One, the vehicle will not start this way. Two, the Rondo has an interference engine. If the belt has tripped and timing has shifted enough, the valves will be damaged by hitting the pistons. You should pull the head and visually inspect the valves and pistons, and repair as needed. Remember to have the timing belt serviced at recommended intervals to prevent engine damage in the future,
Chances are its a minor miss in one of the cylinders. You don't feel it neutral at idle or until the trans goes into overdrive because those times the engine is not working very hard. If it is a miss fire the check engine light will come on when it gets bad enough to affect fuel mileage. If you have not yet changed the plugs I would start with that. There is also a chance you damaged the engine when it overheated.
Has anyone checked the Crank position sensor or knock sensor? If the Crank position sensor isn't reporting the correct position of the crank when it turns the spark plugs are firing at the wrong time. This could be because of a worn timing belt or faulty timing belt tension arm. Have the sensors checked and if they are good your left with replacing your timing belt.
If you are saying that when you first start up the car it misses and then if you rev up the engine the miss goes away, I would say that you have a head gasket leaking coolant into one or more of the clyinders. Check your spark plugs. If one of them is really clean that is the clyinder that is leaking coolant.
I have the same vehicle and had the same problem. It could be one of three things. Yes your timing could be off. 2nd- Your crank positioning sensor could be bad or disconnected.3rd your distributor went out and needs to be replaced. Most likely it is your timing off or your distributor went out in which case the distributor is an easy fix to do yourself but expensive for the part. Did it run before tightning the belt.
