The car will not run if the timing is off, I have a 97 Eclipse 2.0L dohc non turbo .....if it is off 1 tooth it will not start. easy timing cheat;;;;;put the first piston all the way up, put the car in 3rd gear let it roll forward until the camshaft pulleys are in the 12:00 position exactly, the car willl be in perfect time

Yes, "A" 1994 mitsubishi eclipse transmission will fit a 1992 mitsubishi eclipse, IF and only IF it's the right one 6 bolt fits 6 bolt and a 7 bolt fits a 7 bolt. Make sure you know Fwd and Awd and if it's 5 speed =)

When diagnosing engine trouble it is important to know the firing order of the engine. The firing order of the 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse is 1,3,4,2.

I believe it is. The reason being, because most people that I know who own them has bent up valves pretty badly when they're timing belt took a dump on them.

there is no gt turbo. there was only the gs turbo and the gsx which was turboed, the gt didn't come til the 3rd generation eclipse which was in 2000 but 2000+ are all non-turboed.

Hello: I am doing a overhaul on my 2002 Mitsubishi Galant. I inadvertently moved the crankcase while trying to remove the small timing belt while the larger timing belt was off. Knowing that, I would like to know is there a procedure to follow to correct this?

I don't know about the orange one but I know the purple one was a Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder.

Check it with a timing light and compare your results with the manufacturer's specifications.

The 3.3 uses a timing chain,with pushrods.No overhead cam.The 3.0 Mitsubishi uses a timing belt with overhead cam.I know this because I own both.Go to allpar.com.

The 2000 Mitsubishi Montero 3.5L is listed as an "Interference Engine" under timing belts in the www.RockAuto.com auto parts catalog. This means the valves or other major engine parts will be damaged if the timing belt breaks while the engine is running. So replace it as part of scheduled maintenance. Many manufacturers recommend changing the timing belt every 60K miles. I do not know if Mitsubishi recommends different mileage intervals.

The timing is computer controlled, there is no adjustments. I know this is a little late, but timing could be off because the timing belt is not properly aligned. If the timing belt is installed incorrectly the timing will never be right.

i have the exact same problem with my 98 eclipse, alot of people are telling me to check the ground wires on the turn signals, you may wanna check into it. i am, if i figure it out, i will let you know

You just wait for the right timing and greet her.

A very short answer is yes, but the reverse lights are not in the same location so you might have to do some tweaking. i have a 96 that i have done some bumper work on however i have never tried a 97 to 98 bumper on it. but yea as far as i know it fits just fine.

A Galant has timing belts, normally the belts break if they have not been serviced. As for as jumping time they belt may stretch causing it to run bad or not to run at all. Pull the cover off of the timing belt and check the timing using the timing marks. If they are off your car is out of time.

you don't really know unless you get the vehicle tested...most likely it would be your battery or your brakes
