Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
If you have spark and injectors/fuel and timing, it should run, at least to some degree.... most sensor problems that prevent running will kill spark and/or fuel, etc.
The engine is fully assembled right? If the intake hose is not on the engine it will not run.What is your compression after reassembly? If you didn't check, we can just check the front/easy side of the engine for a rough idea.
We need a gauge.... you can't tell the difference between 10 psi and 200 psi visually unfortunately. Most auto parts stores will lend/loan testers out though.
I am not open for a call right now, as I have a back log currently. Even at that, in depth issues like this do not work well on the phone as there is just too much ground to cover in a short period of time versus online with much more flexibility.
The compression test is not difficult to do at all... you just thread the tester into each spark plug hole one at a time and crank the engine for a few seconds and get a reading, then move to the next cylinder. You can unplug the crank sensor to prevent it from trying to fire since we will only have one side unhooked.
Like I mentioned, I have a back log right now, and I do not do phone calls for issues like this where there is tons of back and forth as it ends up eating too much time honestly. What I can cover in 15-20 minutes in back and forth typing could literally take hours on the phone which I do don't get compensated any differently for beyond that one call. There may be someone else here that will do that however, for me it is about efficiency and being able to get things squared away as quickly as possible... in a heavy diagnostic issue like this where there is more time with back and forth inspections, a phone call just doesn't work for me.We can pick this up whenever you want, after you get the tester and have some number to review, etc is fine.
