If you did crack the the block it's only an anchor now, but you'll need it for a core exchange..If I were you, look around for a low-mileage used motor. There is a site called parts are us that have some low mileage motors with low shipping fees. (memphis Tn) Another is, you pay and pull, each of these places have inventory and prices online so that you can get an idea. Labor you price close to you. Now days you can spend up $5000. plus. Good Luck, Kool Tool.

I agree with Push Rod, the head, valves, pistons and sometimes the wall of the cylinders, camshafts are damaged beyond re-use when the timing belt breaks. If you pull the valve cover off you may see damage. When you get the cover off, rotate your motor over by the crankshaft pulley so you can inspect the valve train. I'm sure you will see what's wrong. When you pull the fuse to the EFI, (Electronic Fuel Injection),the engine will not fire and make the noise you're hearing, good luck! Kool Tool.

Replace both unless you had one changed recently, they function as a unit. Clear codes after installation one fault code will set other codes when it becomes a fuel and air issue. (which it does.) If you don't have a scan tool, stop by any Auto Zone, Advance Auto Parts etc. and they should do it free of charge. Good Luck, Kool Tool. Downstream is the lower one.

1st does your radiator have a fan shroud, if it does then replace your thermostat. If you are missing the fan shroud then install one to correct. (the fan shroud surrounds the radiator and causes the air to be pulled thru the radiator.)

Misfire on #5 after clearing fault code and adding Seafoam injector cleaner to tank. Kicking in passing gear causes rear blue oil smoke and code set again for misfire #5. Mitsubishi 2.8 is like that and when one went bad it would smoke the same as this 2.7L eng. Thanks,bob.
