I'll try a little better to explain things.
J-Type, its the shape before the last Galant sold here in Oz. It's a fuel injected 2.0L Auto.
Things have been sus with it for a while really, first the electronic suspension started to play up (disabled it) and another problem would be that while driving the "engine light" would come on and it felt like it was dropping cylinders and I'd lose power, although giving it a rev would fix it. I took it to a Mitsu dealer to get all this checked out, they told be the computer had an error code for the EFI and the ECS, so they just cleared the codes and told me that it's, should be OK, what a load of crock. So thats a bit of history of the problems with the car before last night.
When it happened last night there were no warning lights, the temp. was normal, it just happeded all of a sudden while going down hill, slowing for a corner. The car is undrivable, so it was luck I just managed to park it outside my mates place and I'll have to get it towed tomorrow. When we checked the fluids, they all looked fine, we looked to see if there was any foaming/whiteness in the oil, thats was ok, started the car with the radiator cap off, that all looked fine too, checked tranny fluid aswell. The car starts ok (turnover), but when it starts, it's very noisey, not a squealing sound but more of a knocking sound from the engine. The sound is consistant with revs and they don't go away.
Dad and myself went down this morning, he seems to think the CAM Belt is stuffed (it hasn't been changed in 150,000k's), not snapped, just damaged/worn/slipping, causing all the timing to go out of wack?? Could this cause it??
Thanks guys for the input.
