2002 Lancer is running fine is turning over 70,000 miles soon should timing belt be replaced?

Timing belts should be changes every 50-70K miles. Even though its running fine, the belt can get worn out, have splits, or become brittle and could snap at any time. I highly recommended having it changed to prevent damage that could occur if it does break.

Can you tell me about reccomended maitenance on the timing belt for a mitsubishi lancer, 2.0l 4 cyl. engine year 2002.also, will engine damage occur if it breaks before its replaced?

it's said that every 60,000mi (100,000kms approx.) you havta replace the timing belt. but i believe that it's better if you replace it earlier than that. and safer too, as when the timing belt snaps while you're on the freeway, the crankshaft would still be spinning--- the camshaft stalls--- the valves and the piston heads would contact. catastrophic failure, major damage to your engine.

Timing belt has a crack in it, i have a new belt how do i replace it on mitsubishi lancer coupe 2002

Its not really easy to explain over the net. But the front engine cover has to be removed to gain acces to the front of the cams. You will need to remove most al of your belt drive accessories to do this. Its also critical to ensure you line up the timing marks correctly when re assembling (or timing will never be right). You may also want to replace the water pump at this time too...
