The chain is automatically tensioned, no adjustment is necessary, if it is noisy then the chain or the tensioner are worn out.

I have a 98 Montero Sport, whenever my belt sqeaks I check the tension and usually thats the problem. Tighten them accordingly and it should solve it. As for the timing belt, mine is a belt not chain. First time I had it changed was at 100,000 miles and the dealrship said I was cutting it close ><

SOURCE: where the tension release for

Hi, on the serpentine belt, the tensioner is the round part that looks like a pulley but is round and smooth has no groves on it. It just rests against the belt to remove the slack and to keep the belt tight as it wears. It will or should be down lower then the alternator. It will have a bolt through it so when you put a wrench on it it will move either way to relieve the tension on the belt to remove it. This will be very easy for you to do. Please don't forget to rate me as I know you will be kind. I will check in on you as I keep all files on people that I help, and you can also keep me posted by my user name below.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

ENGINE OVER HEATING REPLACED THERMOSTAT,CANT FIND WATER PUMP MITSUBISHI MONTERO 2001


Your water pump is driven by the timing belt; to access you will need to remove the forward portion of the engine (pumps/alternator/belts and such) when replacing the water pump you wll need to remove and then replace the timing belt and tensioner. Much care is needed to to insure the proper timing or things can go very bad. On a scale of 1-10 (1 being the easiest) I'd give this a 6.5 to 7.

I hope this may have assisted you,

Would my timing chain on a 92 4cyl magna have an adjustable timing chain


no, once the chain is set there is no way to change it, unless you take it off and install a new one.The timing chain has tensioners that keep the tension by itself.I hope I could help rate me accordingly, Thanks!!

I have a Mitsubishi Pajero NM 2002 3.2lt diesel timing chain


I checked out the pajero forum, they don't mention the bottom tensioner as being the noise maker here but rather a sloppy chain, stretched beyond the tensioner and riding on the guides. The noise sounds like it comes from the fan area as a metallic chattering. They sell a chain that has a master link in it, and you don't have to tear down the entire engine again to get to it, just the top cover,, Cut the old chain, and use it to pull the new one through. Also, if your chain did jump its gear, it would only be a matter of 8 - 10 miles before the cam breaks. Hope this helps.

2004 Mitsubishi Montero Sport LS 65,000Miles. My belts seem to make a lot of annoying, loud sound. Especially after it rains. Is this a timing belt/chain issue or one of the other belts?

How install timing belt 1993 1.8l eclipse


See Figures 1, 2 and 3
  1. If possible, position the engine so the No. 1 piston is at TDC.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Remove the timing belt covers.
  4. Remove the timing (outer) belt tensioner and remove the outer timing belt.
  5. Remove the outer crankshaft sprocket and flange.
  6. Remove the silent shaft (inner) belt tensioner and remove the belt.

  1. Align the timing marks of the silent shaft sprockets and the crankshaft sprocket with the timing marks on the front case. Wrap the timing belt around the sprockets so there is no slack in the upper span of the belt and the timing marks are still aligned.
  2. Install the tensioner pulley and move the pulley by hand so the long side of the belt deflects about 1/4in.
  3. Hold the pulley tightly so the pulley cannot rotate when the bolt is tigthened. Tighten the bolt to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm) and recheck the deflection amount.
  4. Install the timing belt tensioner fully toward the water pump and tighten the bolts. Place the upper end of the spring against the water pump body.
  5. Align the timing marks of the camshaft, crankshaft and oil pump sprockets with their corresponding marks on the front case or rear cover.
There is a possibility to align all timing marks and have the oil pump sprocket and silent shaft out of time, causing an engine vibration during operation. If the following step is not followed exactly, there is a 50 percent chance that the silent shaft alignment will be 180 degrees off.
  1. Before installing the timing belt, ensure that the left side (rear) silent shaft (oil pump sprocket) is in the correct position as follows:
    1. Remove the plug from the rear side of the block and insert a tool with shaft diameter of 0.31 in. (8mm) into the hole.
    2. With the timing marks still aligned, the shaft of the tool must be able to go in at least 2 1/2 in. If the tool can only go in about 1 in., the shaft is not in the correct orientation and will cause a vibration during engine operation. Remove the tool from the hole and turn the oil pump sprocket 1 complete revolution. Realign the timing marks and insert the tool. The shaft of the tool must go in at least 2 1/3 in.
    3. Recheck and realign the timing mark.
    4. Leave the tool in place to hold the silent shaft while continuing.
  2. Install the belt to the crankshaft sprocket, oil pump sprocket, then camshaft sprocket, in that order. While doing so, make sure there is no slack between the sprocket except where the tensioner is installed.
  3. Recheck the timing marks' alignment. If all are aligned, loosen the tensioner mounting bolt and allow the tensioner to apply tension to the belt.
  4. Remove the tool that is holding the silent shaft and rotate the crankshaft a distance equal to 2 teeth on the camshaft sprocket. This will allow the tensioner to automatically apply the proper tension on the belt. Do not manually overtigthen the belt or it will howl.
  5. Tigthen the lower mounting bolt first, then the upper spacer bolt.
  6. To verify correct belt tension, check that the deflection at the longest span of the belt is about 1/2in.
  7. Install the timing belt covers and all related items.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable.

Mitsi Montera/Pajero/Magna 2.6 timing chain tension


The 'special bolt B' listed in the Haynes manual allows adjustment for the silent shaft chain, not the timing chain.
I don't know why there is a phillip head screw instead of a bolt.

No, timing chains are not expected to be replaced periodically like belts. Ocassionally they get noisey at high mileages and require a new tensioner pad but usually the chain is OK with a new pad
