Bad news your eclipse has an interference engine which means you likely bent some valves and possible other damage sounds expensive

Have your Crankshaft position sensor checked. Or possibly the fuel pump

SOURCE: mitsubishi eclipse convertiable timing belt change?

Typical timing belt intervals are every 60k miles. It's a very involved service to do the whole job - timing belt, timing belt tensioner, serpentine or accessory belts, water pump, thermostat, spark plugs, all fluids, all filters, brake and suspension inspection, and tire rotation. On many cars it's recommended to change the oxygen sensors as well. Quite a bit of this can be done when you want, but the first five items are critical and should all be done. And regardless of whether your manufacturer says the coolant is "lifetime", replace it - don't reuse coolant. It's cheap and it's good practice to use new coolant.

SOURCE: 97 dodge neon timing belt broke while going down

I do not have good news for you.
According to the Gates Timing Belt guide 2002 Edition, both engines offered in the Dodge Neon are interference engines.
This means that your engine has likely sustained sgnificant valve, cylinder head or even piston damage. Have you tested the compression?
It is probably least expensive to buy a used engine, change its timing belt and replace your engine with that one.

You are probably a tooth off somewhere. You will need to recheck the timing marks again.

My timing belt has just snapped on my mitsubishi car how would i go about replacing it?


Hi there. If your timing belt snapped well the car was idled up at road speed there is a good chance it did serious damage to valves or pistons. I cant gurantee it but unfourtiantly there is no good way to tell without pulling the motor apart and checking the valves and pistons, etc. If the car was just idling when it broke, you may be all right but once again no way to be sure without tearing it down and having it checked. If you decide its worth trying to replace the belt you would want to get a shop manual such as haynes or chiltons for the procedure because this is a big job. More than likely the easiest way involves pulling the engine.

My 1999 Eclipse gs engine light came on, DTC P1390.


P1390 - Timing belt skipped one tooth or more.


the engine is an interference engine so if the timing belt skipped, it should be fixed before starting the engine again. otherwise you run the risk of bend/break valves from piston to valve contact
