2009 Eclipse wont start
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.
broke timing chain when it was wore you heard it slapping ready to break and when you shut it off and it having slack in it when I cranked it up it broke and now you hear it when u spin engine over cranking it
How hard is it to replace the timing chain or how can i check to be sure
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?
Nope safe single can easy fix replace it may be a belt instead of chain easy fix of I was there we make pot coffee and change it call it a night
Look at YouTube give you idea how then you see its easy as 123
Thank you very much i appreciate the help
