You'll need an inductive timing light. Connect to the battery, and clip the induction lead over the #1 spark plug wire. Start the car. there is a timing mark on the crankshaft i would take chalk and color that mark in to make it easier to see. The timing mark on the crankshaft pully will appear stationary when you point the light at it, and should correspond to the timing guage(mounted on the timing belt cover). Look on the emissions tag in the engine compartment to determine the correct setting. You'll need to loosen the nuts that hold the distributor , so you'll be able to rotate it. after that rotate it unitl you match up then tighten it back down good luck

99 mitsubishi mirage just died as i was driveing. now wont crank, sounds like timing is off. Any suggestions

If the car dies like you flipped a killswitch and wont even try to crank the motor I would definitely lean toward the ignition switch in the steering column is fried. Once it shorts out the car dies and wont crank.
