Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse
Was driving the car it made a ticking noise then a clunk and it stopped restarted it then stopped now wont start but making a wooin noise when trying to start like slow starting but wont start
Sounds like the timing belt has gone would not keep trying to start engine if this is the case and it will cost you more to fix. it may have striped a cog on the belt or the adjuster has given up the goat. clicking and clunk is a most common sound of the belt going. if you have to have the belt changed and the engine runs and is ticking then the valves are bent and you will need to have the head changed or the valves replaced, as over time the valve can snap and then the engine is a gonner.
