Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 90000 miles
Changing the timing belt as a precaution but now created an issue. Before removing the old belt rotated engine to line up all marks at the identified locations. Proceeded to replace the belt verifying the same Camshaft and Crankshaft marks were aligned. Engine starts but appears as if the timing is to far advance (when initially cranking) and the idle will hunt. If you raise the engine speed it feels like the ignition is breaking down. We replaced the sparkplugs and rechecked the timing belt alignment 5 times and still this issue cannot get cleared.
Does the Engine Control Module lock into a limp mode until it is reset? During the initial repair the engine was cranked over with the Mass airflow sensor and the Cranksensor disconnected.
have the same problem?
