2009 Eclipse wont start

Asked by Oct 21, 2016 at 02:13 AM about the 2009 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2009 mitsubishi eclipse gs, manual
transmission. I stared hearing a noise
similar to a ticking valve but not as constant
today. I turned my car off when i parked and
then tried to start it up about 20 mins later
but it wouldnt start. It carnks but then gives
off the sound you would hear when u try and
start an already running car and it wont start
the engine. It just continues to crank. Any
ideas??? Dont really have the money to
throw a shop to diagnose it. Thank you.

In that car takes about 2 hours does it have dual over head cam or twin cam engine if so on top of engine next to pullys you can take cover off or listen to a slapping noise while someone spins it over easy fix less than 100 bucks do it your self 200 mechanic

Its a single overhead cam

Also if it did break in this way, meaning it didnt snap while the engine was on or i was driving, will there be any other damage to the engine? Would if have damaged any thing by me trying to start the car several times?
