How to replace the power steering belt on a 4g13



ADJUSTMENT

Excessive belt tension will cause damage to the alternator and water pump pulley bearings, while, on the other hand, loose belt tension will produce slip and premature wear on the belt. Therefore, be sure to adjust the belt tension to the proper level.
To adjust the tension on a drive belt, loosen the adjusting bolt or fixing bolt locknut on the alternator, alternator bracket or tension pulley. Then move the alternator or turn the adjusting bolt to adjust belt tension. Once the desired value is reached, secure the bolt or locknut and recheck tension.

Replace alternator belt


  • Locate the two belts on the left side (passenger side) of your Mitsubishi Lancer. The outer belt is a serpentine belt, operating four pulleys and the inner belt is your alternator belt.

  • 2

    Follow the serpentine (outer) belt to the three pulleys lined up vertically near the front of the engine compartment. Locate the middle pulley, which is the tension pulley for the belt.

  • 3

    Loosen the bolt on the middle pulley with a socket wrench by turning counter-clockwise. Do not remove the bolt, just turn it a couple of times. Loosen the tensioner bolt on the side of the of the pulley, facing the front of the vehicle.

  • 4

    Remove the serpentine belt and then loosen the bolt on the alternator. With the alternator loose, move it forward so that the alternator belt loosens up and then remove belt from the pulleys.

  • 5

    Install the new alternator belt by placing it over both inside pulleys. Tighten the tension on the alternator belt by moving the alternator back and keeping tension on it by holding it back with a long screwdriver. While the alternator belt is tight, use a socket wrench to tighten up the bolt on the alternator.

  • 6

    Place the serpentine belt back on the pulleys and then use a socket wrench on the bolt on the front of the tension pulley. Once the serpentine belt is tight, tighten up the bolt in the middle of the tension pulley.

  • 7

    Start the Mitsubishi Lancer's engine to test the alternator belt and make sure it is working properly. Once you have verified it is working, turn the engine off.

    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION of timing belt: Fig. 1: View of the timing belt cover 91163p64.gif
    Fig. 2: Loosen then timing belt tensioner using a ratchet and short socket 91163p65.gif
    Fig. 3: Matchmark the direction of rotation of the timing belt 91163p67.gif
    Fig. 4: Once loose, pull the belt off the camshaft pulley 91163p71.gif
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Turn the crankshaft to align the timing belt matchmarks and set cylinder No. 1 to Top Dead Center (TDC) on the compression stroke. Once in this position, the engine must NOT be turned or disturbed.
    3. Remove all necessary components to gain access to the cylinder head and timing belt covers.
    4. Remove the cylinder head and timing belt covers.
    5. There are 2 belts in this system; the one running to the camshaft pulley is the timing belt. The other, shorter one drives the balance shafts and is referred to as the balancer belt or timing balancer belt. Lock the timing belt adjuster in position by installing one of the lower timing belt cover bolts to the adjuster arm.
    6. Loosen the timing belt and balancer shafts tensioner adjuster nut, but do not loosen the nut more than 1 turn. Push the tensioner for the balancer belt away from the belt to relieve the tension. Hold the tensioner and tighten the adjusting nut to hold the tensioner in place.
    7. Carefully remove the balancer belt. Do not crimp or bend the belt; protect it from contact with oil or coolant. Slide the belt off the pulleys.
    8. Remove the balancer belt drive sprocket from the crankshaft.
    9. Loosen the lockbolt installed to the timing belt adjuster and loosen the adjusting nut. Push the timing belt adjuster to remove the tension on the timing belt, then tighten the adjuster nut.
    10. Remove the timing belt. Do not crimp or bend the belt; protect it from contact with oil or coolant. Slide the belt off the pulleys.
    11. If defective, remove the belt tensioners by performing the following:
      1. Remove the springs from the balancer belt and the timing belt tensioners.
      2. Remove the adjusting nut.
      3. Remove the bolt from the balancer belt adjuster lever, then remove the lever and the tensioner pulley.
      4. Remove the lockbolt from the timing belt tensioner lever, then remove the tensioner pulley and lever from the engine.
    12. This is an excellent time to check or replace the water pump. Even if the timing belt is only being replaced as part of a good maintenance schedule, consider replacing the pump at the same time. To install:
    13. If the water pump is to be replaced, install a new O-ring and make certain it is properly seated. Install the water pump and retaining bolts. Tighten the mounting bolts to 106 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
    14. If the tensioners were removed, perform the following to install them:
      1. Install the timing belt tensioner lever and tensioner pulley. NOTE: The tensioner lever must be properly positioned on its pivot pin located on the oil pump. Be sure that the timing belt lever and tensioner moves freely and does not bind.
      2. Install the lockbolt to the timing belt tensioner, do not tighten the lockbolt at this time.
      3. Install the balancer belt pulley and adjuster lever.
      4. Install the adjusting nut and the bolt to the balancer belt adjuster lever. Do not tighten the adjuster nut or bolt at this time. NOTE: Be sure that the balancer lever and tensioner moves freely and does not bind.
      5. Install the springs to the tensioners.
      6. Move the timing belt tensioner its full deflection and tighten the lockbolt.
      7. Move the balancer its full deflection and tighten the adjusting nut.
    15. The crankshaft timing pointer must be perfectly aligned with the white mark on the flywheel or flex-plate; the camshaft pulley must be aligned so that the word UP is at the top of the pulley and the marks on the edge of the pulley are aligned with the surfaces of the head.
    16. Install the timing belt over the pulleys and tensioners.
    17. Loosen the bolt used to lock the timing belt tensioner. Loosen, then tighten the timing belt adjusting nut.
    18. Turn the crankshaft counterclockwise until the cam pulley has moved 3 teeth; this creates tension on the timing belt. Loosen, then tighten the adjusting nut and tighten it to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm). Tighten the bolt used to lock the timing belt tensioner.
    19. Realign the timing belt marks, then install the balancer belt drive sprocket on the crankshaft.
    20. Align the front balancer pulley; the face of the front timing balancer pulley has a mark, which must be aligned with the notch on the oil pump body. This pulley is the one at 10 o'clock to the crank pulley when viewed from the pulley end.
    21. Align the rear timing balancer pulley (2 o'clock from the crank pulley) using a 6 x 100mm bolt or rod. Mark the bolt or rod at a point 2.9 in. (74mm) from the end. Remove the bolt from the maintenance hole on the side of the block; insert the bolt or rod into the hole. Align the 2.9 in. (74mm) mark with the face of the hole. This pin will hold the shaft in place during installation.
    22. Install the balancer belt. Once the belts are in place, be sure that all the engine alignment marks are still correct. If not, remove the belts, realign the engine and reinstall the belts. Once the belts are properly installed, slowly loosen the adjusting nut, allowing the tensioner to move against the belt. Remove the pin from the maintenance hole and reinstall the bolt and washer.
    23. Turn the crankshaft 1 full turn, then tighten the adjuster nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm). Remove the bolt used to lock the timing belt tensioner.
    24. Install the lower cover, ensuring the rubber seals are in place. Install a new seal around the adjusting nut, DO NOT loosen the adjusting nut.
    25. Install the key on the crankshaft and install the crankshaft pulley. Apply oil to the bolt threads and tighten it to 181 ft. lbs. (250 Nm).
    26. Install the upper timing belt cover and all applicable components. When installing the side engine mount, tighten the bolt and nut attaching the mount to the engine to 40 ft. lbs. (55 Nm) and the through-bolt and nut to 47 ft. lbs. (65 Nm).
    27. Connect the negative battery cable.

    INSPECTION
    NOTE: Never forcefully twist, turn inside out or bend timing belt. Do not allow oil or grease to come in contact with timing belt.
    1. Replace timing belt if it is contaminated with oil or grease.
    2. Check timing belt for uneven wear, fraying, peeling, cracking and hardening. Replace timing belt as necessary.
    3. Bend timing belt into a "U" shape as shown in figure. Distance "A" must be at least 1.0 inch (25 mm).
    4. Inspect both idler pulley and tensioner pulley for uneven wear and smooth bearing operation.
    5. Inspect camshaft pulleys and timing belt pulley for broken teeth or damage.
    NOTE: Replace any component that shows damage, excessive wear, or that appears prone to a possible failure.
    INSTALLATION
    1. Install tensioner pulley.
    NOTE: Replace tensioner spring whenever timing belt is replaced.
    2. Pull tensioner pulley to its furthest point and tighten lock bolt.
    3. Check that timing mark on timing belt pulley is aligned with timing mark on engine.
    4. Check that "I" mark on intake camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on cylinder head cover and "E" mark on exhaust camshaft pulley is aligned
    with mark on cylinder head cover.
    NOTE: If existing timing belt is being reused, install belt in proper rotation direction marked prior to removal.
    5. Install timing belt onto timing belt pulley first, then idler pulley, exhaust camshaft pulley, intake camshaft pulley, and tensioner pulley in that
    order.
    6. Check that there is no looseness in belt between idler pulley and exhaust camshaft pulley or between intake and exhaust camshaft pulleys.
    7. Loosen tensioner pulley lock bolt and allow tensioner spring to apply tension to timing belt.
    NOTE: Do not add additional tension.

    8. Tighten tensioner pulley lock bolt to specified torque.
    Tightening torque: 28 - 38 ft. lbs. (38 - 51 Nm, 3.9 - 5.2 kg-m)
    9. Rotate crankshaft two full revolutions (clockwise only) and align timing mark on timing belt pulley with timing mark on engine block.
    10. Check that "I" mark on intake camshaft pulley and "E" mark on exhaust camshaft pulley are aligned with marks on cylinder head cover.
    11. If they are not aligned, remove timing belt and start process from tensioner installation.
    12. Measure timing belt deflection by applying moderate pressure midway between camshaft pulleys. If deflection is not correct, repeat from
    tensioner installation.
    Deflection pressure: 22 lb. (98 N, 10 kg)
    Deflection: 0.39 - 0.50 inch (11 - 13 mm)
    13. Install lower and upper timing belt covers in that order.
    Tightening torque: 5.8 - 8.0 ft. lbs. (7.9 - 10.7 Nm, 0.8 - 1.1 kg-m)
    14. Install timing belt guide plate and crankshaft pulley.
    Tightening torque: 9.0 - 12.6 ft. lbs. (12.3 - 17.2 Nm, 1.3 - 1.8 kg-m)
    15. Install water pump pulley.
    Tightening torque: 9.0 - 12.6 ft. lbs. (12.3 - 17.2 Nm, 1.3 - 1.8 kg-m)
    16. install generator belt and adjust the tension.
    17. Install P/S and/or A/C drive belt and adjust the tension.
    18. Connect negative battery cable.

    Where is the pully release on1991 dodge stealth


    The 6g72 has 3 belts. the Alternator belt is loosened by a horizontal bolt on the tensional pulley just to the left of the crank pulley. it will move the pulley down and loosen the tension. the power steering belt is loosened by a 14mm bolt on a bracket up and to the left of the crank pulley its a very unique bolt not hard to spot. the Timing belt is loosened by loosening a bolt on the tensioner pulley (it will have 2 small holes on it and will be above and left of crank pulley and right of the hydralic tensioner. contact me at spammyiam@aol.com if you need pictures.

    Timing Belt
    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
    1.8L Engine
    Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    Remove the timing belt covers.
    Rotate the crankshaft and align the timing marks located on the camshaft pulleys and the seal plate.
    Remove the crankshaft pulley and hub.
    If the timing belt is to be reused, mark an arrow on the belt to indicate its rotational direction to enable correct re-installation.
    Loosen the timing belt tensioner lockbolt and remove the timing belt.
    To install:
    Temporarily secure the timing belt tensioner in the far left position with the spring fully extended, then tighten the lockbolt.
    Make sure the timing marks on the timing belt pulley (crankshaft sprocket) and the engine block (oil pump housing) are aligned.
    Make sure the timing marks on the camshaft pulleys and the seal plate are aligned.
    Install the timing belt.
    Loosen the tensioner lockbolt. Using a suitable prying tool, position the timing belt tensioner so the timing belt is taut, then tighten the tensioner lockbolt.
    Turn the crankshaft two turns clockwise and align the timing belt pulley mark with the mark on the engine block.
    Fig. 1: Timing marks are located on the camshaft pulleys as shown — 1.8L engines
