Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse
I don't think the mechanic is being honest with you. If the oil pump quits, the light comes on, but if you immediately pulled over, the chances to damage the engine are slim, if the oil pump was defective, the oil pressure light would have been ON all the time. I don't think he knows for a fact that the oil pump is shoot. The timing belt snapping sounds more like it. I suggest to have another mechanic look at the vehicle, tell him you suspect it is the timing belt, once he gives you a diagnostic, ask him about the oil pump if he thinks it needs to be replaced. In the remote case that the engine is shoot, you can get a used engine at a junk yard. So have this options present before you sign the title over.
A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.
