No, you will have to undue the motor mounts and be able to lift the engine some. Here is a basic procedure for the same engine if you like, but its quite a detailed procedure...

Yes you can, but it is not an easy job. I would have it done at the dealers, or a local auto shop with the right tools etc.

Where is crank sensor on 02 lancer


It`s located down by the crank gear behind the lower timing cover. Difficult to get to. If you have not done a timing belt, now would be good to do that as well!

-Try one more time. When pull out the plug, make sure ground it.
If there is spark shown. It could be the rotor point to the wrong cylinder plug wire.

My mate has a 2002 lancer .had the timing belt done and all electrics checked and a full service done..also had the plugs changed.it starts fine but when its warmed up it runs like its on 2 cylinders.


i checked the engine at gates.com, a manufacturer of timing belts. the '02 lancer is listed as an interference engine. that means if the belt broke while the engine was running, you might have some damage to the valves. also if it is slightly out of time, the problem could occur. you must make sure the timing is spot on, which may require going back into the timing belt and checking crank and cam position. you may also have to tear the valve train down and check for damage

Can you tell me about reccomended maitenance on the timing belt for a mitsubishi lancer, 2.0l 4 cyl. engine year 2002.also, will engine damage occur if it breaks before its replaced?


it's said that every 60,000mi (100,000kms approx.) you havta replace the timing belt. but i believe that it's better if you replace it earlier than that. and safer too, as when the timing belt snaps while you're on the freeway, the crankshaft would still be spinning--- the camshaft stalls--- the valves and the piston heads would contact. catastrophic failure, major damage to your engine.

Engine has no compression


when the timing belt broke it also bent the valves,hence the broken rocker arm. pull the head and see the valves are bent

Timing mark for timing belt


Best to go into a Mitsi dealer and take a photocopy of the timing belt replacement instructions. I would be very concerned that there may be internal engine damage if the cambelt has broken, such as bent valves or piston damage. It's highly unlikely that the cam will stop in the right position with all the valves almost closed when the belt breaks, but I have heard of it from time to time.
Hope this helps, Mark.
