Mitsubishi wont start


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.

Set camshaft timing


there should be marks on crank pully and cam belt pully. rotate motor until crank pully timing mark is on zero.the cam belt pully should be lined up with its own mark.number one piston should be at the top of its stroke (top dead centre TDC) and number one valves should be shut. if the cam belt mark is not alined with its own mark remove the belt realine the marks and refit the belt

What kind of damage could i do to my dodge 2001 neon running with number 3 piston havng no compression


what probably happened is that when your timing belt broke the #3 piston most likely hit the valves hence the lost of compression. you will need to take the cylinder head off and have it rebuilt.

The car doesn't start good or idle. I changed the timing belt and lined up the marks exactly.


This is a common problem. The marks you are talking about actually line up several times during the cycle of the motor. You need to turn the motor by hand until the number 1 piston is all the way up and the next piston in the firing order is starting it's upward movement, this is Number 1 Top Dead Center. Look at the valves and make sure that both valves on the number one are closed and only the intake valve is open in the next cylinder to fire. That should set the valves to Number 1 TDC. Then align the timing marks and replace the timing belt or chain. This should but you at 0 degrees timed and allow you to be able to adjust the timing as needed to get the motor running smoothly. Good Luck.

Timing setting


No it should not make a differance considering the engine will be constantly rotating, because the engine must be on and at normal operating temperature to set the timing.

How to set a timing belt


Factory timing for all 90-93 normally aspirated Celicas (ST, GT, and GT-S) is 10º before top dead center (BTDC). This means when the crankshaft angle of the number one cylinder reaches 10º, the spark plug will fire. It fires before it reaches top dead center (TDC) because the flame front takes time to fully combust and push the piston downward. this site might help u .http://www.toyotacelicaonline.com/timing.htm
