    It ended up being the latter part of the solution. The timing belt was broken but fortunatly no damage was done to the pistons or the valves

Most FI systems have a pressure relief valve on the fuel rail (a pipe parallel to the engine block) that supplies fuel to the injectors. It will probably look a lot like a tire valve but a little larger. After the engine has cranked for a few seconds, pressing the center of this fitting should produce a squirt of gasoline. If it does, the problem is elsewhere and after the spilled fuel has evaporated, I would start by pulling a plug wire and letting it arc to the block. If it produces a healthy spark, you aren't finished with the diagnosis. 
I just hope this engine is not an interference type and a timing belt is broken; this would be an expensive failure since engine damage is certain.

Help me fixed this car, 2000 Eclipse GS


hey--it could any of the below:
1. low transmission fluid
2. internal transmission wear - probably time for an overhaul or some kind of rebuilding
If the RPMS DON T RISE - like the engine is bogging down and does not have the power to move the car faster I would suspect
1. a lack of fuel supply - like a weak fuel pump or a restriction in the fuel filter 2. restriction in the exhaust system like a catalytic converter or muffler 3. an engine sensor is out of whack - which will require the use of a computer scanner to read the computer memory
