Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport
2003 mitsubishi montero sport 3.0 replace timing belt wont fire all marks are in line
Posted by Anonymous on
Did you install the belt with the number one piston on the compression stroke and have the distributor pointed at the number 1 plug connector wire. If so, you must of missed the belt placement by one tooth. If everything was correct like you mentioned it should of started. So, you made a small mistake that you will have to check again where, Im sorry :.(
Number 1 piston on the TDC of it's compression stroke, distributor pointed at the number 1 plug wire.
When on the compression stroke, the valve rockers on that piston will be relaxed (sealed) and the rockers will have play in them at that setting. Both rockers, intake and exhaust on number 1 will be loose when on the compression stroke of that piston.

Your belt is loose (and it just needs tightening) or it is worn and needs to be replaced. It may look ok but they glaze over; all the little ridges get shinny and slip.
