It is semi difficult. The timing belt on the v 6 dohc is one of the longest timing belts you will ever see, It winds around one double set of cam pulleys, down around the crankshaft pulley through a belt tensioner, back up around the other set of double camshaft pulleys, then back down around the water pump pulley and finally back up to the camshaft pulleys where you started. It is of utmost importantce that all the timing marks are lined up properly and that the belt tensioner is properly set when you have the new belt on. If you have a lot of patience and some previous engine work under your belt it should be within your ability. You will be taking off all the timing covers on the front of the motor , the front drive pully off the crankshaft, all the accesory belts off, undue the alternator and shift it out of the way , the front motor mount comes off, the power steering belt tensioner has to come off, It is best to jack the car up on stands with support under the oil pan because of the released motor mount. take off the driver side wheel and wheelwell undercovers for access. Take pictures, label all wiring you disconnect, it is a good idea to replace the timing belt tensioner with the belt and maybe the water pump also to avoid going through this pain soon. Get a Chilton or Haynes manual for reference. In other words it is a *****!!!!! But If you tackle the job, get it back together and the car runs , you will be proud,

My 1993 Mitsubishi Diamante will not start in cold. Also when it finally does decide to start it'll shut off. The electronics stay on, but the car cuts off. I'll drive it to the store and walk in to buy...

when was the timing belt last changed. ? could be this.
also check breather lines all of them there may be a blockage.
check spark plugs and leads this can also lead to this fault. an damaged or week lead or spark plug will take more to get going. leads can wear out and go hard and crack inside. spark plugs gaine in the gap size over time.

93 Diamante making clanking sounds under the hood. From fairly quiet to fairly loud. Sounds like it's coming from the belt area, a/c ciompressor area of the car.

This could be caused by different things. It sounds like it may be your timing belt though. If you remove your drive belts (alternator, power steering and air conditioner belts), and then restart the vehicle, if the noise stops, then spin the pulleys you just removed the belts from, to see which one is making the noise. If the noise does not stop, then it is most likely the timing belt tensioner making all that noise and you will need to have the timing belt and associated parts, idler pulley/s, tensioner, water pump and seals replaced. Hope this helps. Have a nice day :O)

2000 Diamante, Timing Belt ? Loud pop, explosion, bang...

sounds like the belt tensioner. look for any drive pulley that doesn't actually drive anything but is turned by the belt... that is spring loaded and keeps tension on the belt... if it moves freely... it needs to be replaced.

Loud pop, timing belt ? , mitsubishi diamante 00

Very possible it was the timing belt. If the main serpentine belt seems loose, it also coould be your pulley. If you can check it now, the tensioner pulley is the one you see that is very silver looking on the side that actually supports the OUTSIDE of the belt. If you can go take a look at it now, grab ahold of it and try to move it. The only motion it should make is a spinning motion....this will be step one on figuring out the problem....will take one minute to verify.....
