Did this video help you?

Ed Pape: Also thanks YouTube for showing me how to do crap like insulate my attic to texture my walls..windows..etc. In these liberal times no money must find a way.

Kevin M: I just replaced my timing belt, balance belt, water pump and new tension/idler pulley. This video was very informative and was key to my success. Thank you so much! 2000 Mitsubishi Galant 2.4L i4 (4G64)

Jeff Mackie: will this be about the same for a 05 3.0 liter eclipse gts?

Blkhwk83: Do you think I could squeeze the crankshaft position sensor out from behind the timing belt without removing the belt itself? 

pricelessclips: How did you remove the 4 bolt from the crankshaft pulley? I know it moves while you turn your breaker bar. I don't have power tools. Also, is it bad to turn the crank pulley without the serpentine belt? I'm just replacing the Crankshaft Position Sensor. Thanks

Matilda Abernathy: Do you use Mitsubishi parts or after market parts. Heard aftermarket parts are not good.

Ed Pape: Hey, thanks bro I was stuck. Had all tick marks except the bottom one. If it weren't for you I'd have trashed my ferrarri (summit wagon). Once I lined up that bottom notch ran smooth like a baby. You saved me dough and wife's heartache. I'd have had to take her car for the weak. 

DropthaBomb1: Could I just loosen the top timing belt so I can take my head off or do I have to remove the entire belt? 

Daniel Nieves: From you video did you rotate the crank shaft sprocket to install the balance belt, also you mentioned you rotated the sprocket twice after you installed the balance belt to check the timing marks without having the timing belt on, with this being an interference motor would have that not made the pistons hit the valve's.

vanessa trevino: My car keeps shutting down. Ive changed the coils n fuel pump. Is there something im missing. Is it possible I need to change the ECU computer. 

KrazyVideoChick: My eclipse is in the hospital right now waiting for the Doc to fix her up on Monday to do this... $520..... ugh... my poor baby...

Todd Mcleod: Not the same as the chrysler 2.4 

hector morales: how do you know if balance shaft sprocket if in the right direction? or does it only go one way?

Billed Oracle: My timing belt broke as I was driving will the valve kiss a piston is it worth doing this job?? 

KEYBOARDWARRlOR: YOU FORGOT TO REPLACE THE WATER PUMP

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 spyder

Diego Haro: awesome video very detailed instructios

Buckin Bronco: 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?

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? Thank you

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 new one

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?

gregvance: Fricken beautiful. 
jon angus: I feel the majority of people would have preferred 9mm over 380, myself included. 9mm is easier to find, cheaper when you do, and better terminal ballistics compared to 380. Difference in recoil is minor when comparing the two.
