Car will turn over but not start why?

Asked by Jan 01, 2015 at 12:28 PM about the 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The timing belt was replaced about a year ago, just replaced plugs, ignition coil pack, crank sensor and the ECM thinking these could be the problem but car still wont start, what else could be the problem?

1 Answer


Does it have spark? Does it have fuel pressure at the fuel rail? If yes to both then I advise to Do a compression check on all cylinders. Your psi should be somewhere between 150 psi and 200 psi. Any cylinders having 0 psi will have bent valves.
