Tony Lawson: Wow, great video! I just bought a 2000 Eclipse, 2.4 liter. They don't know
when the last time the belt was changed, and it has 144K on it. Runs great
though. I won't restart it until I do this. Your video gave me confidence
to do this job. Looks like the balancer belt may be tricky. I guess you
rotated the belt around to get it in? Not the crank? Thanks for the video!
James Gill: im doing the waterpump on same motor for a friend. put a cam timing belt on
since i had to take it off anyways. all the marks are lined up but i dont
have easy access to that plug for the screwdriver test on the oil pulley.
if its in backwards will it affect anything other than vibration?
Jim Hinkle: Thanks for the video! I'll be doing this on my daughters car.
Misty Davis: Help...anyone knows how to replace camshaft seals on 03 mits. eclipse
Diego Haro: awesome video very detailed instructios
Kim Ryeowook: scannerguy1968 thank you very much...thanks guys
scannerguy1968: No prob. Hoped it helped
Jesse Ruvalcaba: You're a saint, thank you sir!
scannerguy1968: That would be a hard one. I wouldn't I guess. If u do don't work it or let
RPM's very high. Don't think it would kill anything if just the balance is
off for short drives. Eventually it would rattle something loose or worse
yet snap a shaft
milarmark53: Good video. I never would have considered the counter weight.
scannerguy1968: Pretty much. With looking I think u need to go as far as removing the belt
tensioner then the belt
Kenny Ainslie: Is it true if the crankshaft sensor is worn out badly, that would be a
reason why your car just cranks or what is it really?
Jesse Ruvalcaba: I had recently had replaced the water pump and timing belt. The water pump
is ceased an need to replace just the pump I was told I needed to follow
these steps to be able to take off the old water pump is that correct?
masterofguitarred87: I recently had my timing belt replaced on the exact same vehicle. My car
now shakes, i can feel it all over the car, it also now sounds really loud,
like a racecar. It didn't do any of this before replacing the timing belt.
I doubt its my mounts, because I had Them replace last year. Can you please
advise on a solution?
scannerguy1968: There are a two reasons for a car to just crank. No spark or no fuel. The
crank sensor would be a good guess as to no spark at all and would just
crank. A code reader would tell right away
Djarius Perry: No, won't crank most of the time, when it does crank, it will drive perfect
for 20-30mins but if I cut it off, it won't start and that 1 and 4 cylinder
won't get spark, I was thinking the crank angle sensor but I'm pretty sure
it would make the check engine light come on so I don't know, what's
confusing is that coil is receiving power from the connector, I looked at
the ground and even replaced it, I changed the connector and still no change
Kill4FunRecords1: i have a 2001 Mitsubishi Gallant , had some issues with it starting
yesterday. woke up drove to work no problem , Went out for lunch start up
no problem , the try to go back to work did not start.. I heard a Click ,
but nothing , Checked my battery that not the problem . Finally it started
came back to work. Try starting it again and nothing. All I heard was Click
, Click , . i though it was my starter getting suck but im not sure . After
trying to turn on the car with so many clicks
scannerguy1968: Damn, hard one. When you mean you looked at the ground do you mean down to
the frame and block or at the battery. Sure sounds like a ground issue. Or
as you say the ECM is going out. But something should throw a code other
than the ground somewhere. I know the crank sensor will throw a code. That
is what mine did when the small timing belt broke. It ripped the sensor
apart and the motor killed. I had a crank sensor code after that. If you
pulled the battery terminals it will reset the codes.
Jesse Ruvalcaba: *rubbing on a belt a tiny bit. Got to re check it
scannerguy1968: I pulled both out without jacking up. Sorry for the delayed reply
Alan Main: I have a bad crankshaft position sensor. And I want to check to see if
maybe I just have a a loose wire or something? Is there anyway to get a
good look at it without taking half the car apart?
Djarius Perry: Yeah I've replaced that coil four times and I've swapped it, when I swap
it, it works fine giving spark to cylinder 2 and 3, I have no dtc showing
bad crank sensor or anything, I was thinking the computer was bad because
the power windows and convertible top stopped working but the fuses are
good, I'm stumbed on what to try next
scannerguy1968: I do believe you can get at it without taking the belt off.
scannerguy1968: Trying to remember off the top of my head. There is a mark on the timing
sprocket which you align to a tab on the valve cover for top dead center.
Once you have the crank sprocket,oil sprocket and idler sprocket aligned
it's a matter of putting the belt on when they are all aligned.
Djarius Perry: Yes I chased the ground down to the engine block, I've replaced the whole
cable, I guess I will grab an ecu from a junkyard, if it works I will buy a
scannerguy1968: Best way to find out is rule out the coil pack being bad. Swap out one pack
for the other. If spark is gone on 1 and 4 then it's the pack. My bad pack
had juice coming out of it. I have another vid on here showing the packs. I
don't think it's a timing problem though. If the belt broke or crank sensor
goes out you will have nothing.
Djarius Perry: Ecm I mean
scannerguy1968: Guess I'm not following. On the axle side or on the engine under the timing
cover? looked at the car and can't see what you are talking about.
Jesse Ruvalcaba: Question There was a loud screeching sound coming from the water pump /
alternator area that only get louder when I accelerator, it was fine for a
little while until i turned on the heater, then it started staling like
crazy then I had a really hard time turning it on then I just couldn't turn
it anymore. I think its the battery or alternator, I original swapped the
water pump because it was ceased
scannerguy1968: Yes, the smaller of the two belts broke and broke the crank sensor which is
mounted towards the front side between the one belt and block
scannerguy1968: You shouldn't have to remove the belt but it is hard getting the bottom
timing cover off. My sensor went out due to the back belt broke and hit it.
Kill4FunRecords1: it finally turned on and its been good since , But My check engine light
came on , Checked the Code It says its a Crankshaft positioning Sensor , ,
How hard is this to replace , My timing belt is new will the sensor prevent
the car from starting ? Thanks
Gregg Hancock: I just need to change crankshaft sensor, will it install without removing
the timing belt?
scannerguy1968: Does it run at all? About the only thing I could think of would be
somewhere along the ground. When I got my car someone already ran a new
ground wire and left the old one hanging. I hooked it up and wipers acted
funny and all kinds of stuff. As far as the top and windows it could be in
a switch. I know when you hit the top down the windows all roll down. So
must be tied in together somewhere
Redshift71: I have a 2003 Eclipse RS. There is a part mounted just below the strut
mount and to the left of the timing pulley. It has a set of wires going
into it. What is that part because it is missing on mine.
davhaaify: I just need to replace the serpentine belt. Is it still necessary to jack
the car up and remove the wheel?
Kill4FunRecords1: would i have to remove the timing belt to replace the sensor ?
Jesse Ruvalcaba: All was perfect thanks. Only thing though is I might have the side engine
scannerguy1968: My guess is one of two things were missed. Counter balance shaft or oil
pump shaft were not timed properly. The oil pump shaft gear can be one of
two ways that has the timing mark on it. Only way to tell is by putting a
small piece of screw driver that is short enough as I did through the front
inspection hole under the exhaust manifold to see if the balance is in the
right place. Easy to mess up. Would have whoever did it look into it
masterofguitarred87: By loud I meant I can hear more of a "roar" now when I accelerate, i can
even feel it. Does feel A bout more powerful them before, but since it
makes the car shake it is not enjoyable to drive. The belt changed came
about because my eclipse now had around 130,000 miles and I remember
reading somewhere that those belts should be replaced when you hit
100,000mi. I Also changed the water pump.
masterofguitarred87: Appreciate all the help. I plan on taking it back to the guy who did it
saturday, since that's the closest day off I get. Do you think I should not
drive the car until then?
01samuelalva: i have a 97 mits galant 2.4, and i am in a week going to replace the
waterpump and timing belts (timing kit), and my questions is how do i know
to replace my hydraulic tensioner? can i just use a vice like you did and
stick a nail in it? and how long of a vice ,do i need to buy to fit the
length of that hydraulic tensioner? 4 inch 5 inch?vice.and do i need a
pulley remover from autozone to remove crankshaft B lower(silent
shalft),you said you hit your with a hammer after you loosen the bolts.
vermontoker: thank you for sharing this
Jesse Ruvalcaba: Awesome thanks. It sounds like its defenatly the alternator belt. I'll
loosen it up. as far as the alternator it was free flowing just fine im
thinking either the alternator might be going out being that its a 2000
eclipse and have never replaced it. the weird thing is that i was not
losing power prior to this but I do know that if the belt isn't properly
tentioned it could be messing with the amps
scannerguy1968: Without knowing if it shakes at all RPMs which I am guessing it does I
would say that someone did not get the counter balance timing set up right.
Same as the balance for the oil pump. Both these have to be timed with the
motor as I showed in the vid. As far as loud, does it have the same power
as before the breakdown? What had happened to trigger the belt change?
These motor are interference motors. If the timing belt breaks during
running you can mess up the valves by hitting the piston
Marlene Zarate: can you make a video of you replacing head gasket on the same eclipse you
have in this video ?
rey panelo: If the timing belt breaks, how would you align the cam shaft marker if its
not properly align? thanks...
Djarius Perry: I got a 02 eclipse, one coil pack gets spark to the 2nd and 3rd cylinder,
but the coil pack for 1 and 4 doesn't spark but has power coming from the
connector to it, is that a timing problem?
Kenny Ainslie: while you were doing your timing belt, did you see a crankshaft sensor?
scannerguy1968: Sounds like the belt squealing from what you wrote. I have Two belts. One
runs the power steering and a/c the other runs the alternator and water
pump. Crack the front one that runs the a/c and see if it squeals. If not
then loosen the back one. But only run it for a bit. Should be able to tell
that way what is going out. IF you replaced the water pump then I would say
the alternator. The heater motor is drawing a lot of current. I've never
seen an alternator seize though but is possible
