So, I've got a 07 eclise 2.4. It ran fine on my way to work, but when I shut it off it wouldn't start again. I checked the basics (fuses, battery, plugs, coils) with no success. I then checked the cam and crank shaft sensors. Crank worked, cam no go. Replaced the camshaft sensor, still no go.
I cracked the timing belt cover and tried to start the engine. I could only see the cam sprocket, but it wasn't turning.
I'm not expert, but from my understanding of engines, I can't think of any reason for this other than the timing belt being broken. Is there any reason that turning the starter would turn the crank but not the timing belt and thus cams?
