Go to Google and put in Mitsubishi 4G63 or 4G64 assuming that is your engine type. You will find a number of sites from which you can download an engine manual for free. That will tell you exactly what to do.

However if you are not experienced in this type of work do not try it. It is not easy and if you make any mistakes you can wreck your engine.

2002 Mitsubishi Galant - When I should change the Timing belt ?


Timing belts should be changed at around 60,000 miles on engines with timing belts-especially on 'interference engines', which are engines that, when the belt breaks while the engine is running, will at least damage the valves and sometimes even pistons. You do not say what engine or model car your Mitsubishi engine is, but most Mitsubishi engines are interference engines. Better safe than sorry.

When to change timing belt on 2003 mitsubishi galant


Most timing belt suppliers recommend 50k to 60k miles for replacement. Your Galant has a interference engine meaning that if the belt fails your will incur major engine damage up to and including replacement of the entire engine.

So if you have over 60k miles on the car go ahead and change the belt, and while you have it apart replace the water pump.

When to change timing belt in 2006 galant


Timing Belt Replace ment Intervals for 2006 Mitsubishi Galant are as follows:

2.4L 4Cylinder engine: Every 60,000 miles

3.8L V-6 Engine: Every 60,000 miles

Both of these engines are "Interference Engines" which means that if the timing belt breaks, severe engine damage is likely to result.

I personally recommend replacement of the timing belt idler and tensioner pullies as well as the water pump because failure of these components will cause a failure of the timing belt.

Timing belt for a mitsubishi 2003


You need to get a manual. Try the Haynes manual for your car. Try autozone; generally available for around $20-$25. This is not the type of thing that can be covered here in enough detail to do you any good. You need pictures.
General procedure is to buy new timing belt. Make sure cylinder #1 is set at TDC. Disconnect negative battery cable. Remove engine covers to access timing belt and remove timing belt Make sure all components are properly aligned and loosen pensioner to remove old timing belt. Install new timing belt. Tension belt. Double check to ensure all components are aligned properly, replace timing belt covers and reconnect battery.

    NOTE The special tool must be screwed in gradually at the rate of a 30 degree turn per second. If it is screwed in all at once, the timing belt tensioner adjuster rod will not easily retract and the tool may bend.

  8. Gradually screw in the special tool and then align the timing belt tensioner adjuster rod set hole “A” with the timing belt tensioner adjuster cylinder set hole “B”.
  9. Insert a wire or pin in the set holes to lock the assembly in place. After removing the special tool, loosen the timing belt tensioner pulley mounting bolts and remove the timing belt. If the belt is being reused be sure to mark the direction of rotation (clockwise) on the belt.
  10. Remove the timing belt tensioner pulley, tensioner arm and adjuster.

I want to replace my timing belt and tune up i bougth a second hand galant 1990 model. is it proper for me to replace the timing belt and tune up the car and i want it change oil, how many liters of oil is...


It takes 4.7 quarts. No need to change the timing belt unless you want to. How many miles are on it would be a good indicator of whether or not to change that belt. Doing a tune up on the car is good practice.

Should be on your 2nd timing belt. If you have the 4cyl engine there is a balance belt that needs to be changed also. Mitsubishi recomends replacement at every 60,000 miles, your 10k over. Most of the time these motors are not interferance engines, But I have seen a few that broke a belt at high rpm that did bent valves......
