SOURCE: i need to replace the alternator belt on a 2000

If you have limited / no mechanical knowledge leave this to an Auto Technician.

This a relatively easy job.

Undo the alterantor lock nut (12mm ring spanner / socket wrench)
Undo the alternator adjustment bolt almost fully (Either 10mm / 12mm wrench)

Get under the car and loosen the main alterantor bolt using a 14mm wrench. Just loosen enough to move alternator, it is not to be removed.

Pull alterantor forward to slacken belt / remove belt.

Replacement is the opp of the above.

Ensure the MAX. deflection at the middle of the belt is only 12mm (1/2") after all redfitting is done.

Failure to have it this tight will wear it out very quickly!!

SOURCE: How to replace a fuel filter for a Mitsubishi Mirage 2000

There is pressure...you have to remove the rear seat cushion,then remove the service cover and then detach the fuel pump harness connector.Start the car and allow it to run until the engine stalls.Turn the key to off position.Then disconnect the negative battery cable, attach the fuel pump connector, and install the access cover. Now place shop rags or towels around the fitting that is being disconnected. Loosen the filter feed pipe flare nut on the bottom of the filter.Seperate the flare nut from the filter. If equiped, remove and discard the gakets. remove the mounting bolts and remove the filter.if necessary remove the filter bracket. To install: install the filter to it's bracket only finger tight. Make sure the flow arrow is in the right direction. Make sure new O rings are installed prior to installation. Insert the filter feed pipe to the lower connection of the filter and manually screw in the main pipe's fare nut. While holding the fuel filter nut with a back-up wrench, tighten the banjo bolt to 22 ft pounds and tighten the flare nut to 25 with a back-up wrench on the nut. tighten the filter mounting bolts to 10 ft. pounds. Connect negative battery cable. turn key on to pressurize the fuel system and check for leaks. If repairs on the fuel system are needed remember to release the pressure before opening the fuel system. Hope this helps. Good luck!

SOURCE: I want to change two belts (A/C and Alternator) on

First, feel the tightness of your belts. You will have to tighten the new belts to the proper tightness. If they are too tight, they will wear the bearings prematurely. If they are too loose, they will slip.

Alternator Belt Removal

  1. Loosen the alternator lock nut.
  2. Loosen the adjuster bolt.
  3. Rotate the adjuster bolt counter clockwise to release the tension on the belt.
  4. Remove the belt.
Similarly for the compressor belt

Why won't my car start with a new alternator and battery


turning over and not firing would indicate your problem is with the fuel delivery. You can do a fuel pressure test with a kit from an auto store or have someone do it for you. You will be checking for one of three things. Bad fuel filter, bad fuel pump or a bad fuel relay.

The sounds like the cluch went bad. the smell and the reason you cant shift gears is due to the clutch. the clutch is burning and thats the smell, when the clutch gets low and slips it smells and sometimes it just blows apart due to wear. have the clutch checked and you will find it needs replacing. hope this is helpful have a good day.

Brand new battery,drove car about two days and the lights got very dim,stereo turned off,no accellaration,and now dead.(1994 mitsubishi mirage 1.8 liter)


It sounds like the battery has gone dead and will need to be replaced due to a bad Alternator. Once you get the car started, check the voltage on the battery, there should be 13.5 to 14.5 Volts. A fully charges battery should have 12 volts with the engine not running and once the engine is running there should be 13.5 Volts with the head lights on and heater on too. If there is less then 12 volts reading on the battery with the engine running, then replace the Alternator. You can pick up a Alternator at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to replacing it with common tools and they can also check the Alternator in your car to before you buy the new one. Good luck and hope this helps and insect the wire harness from the battery to the Alternator, look for any sighs of damaged like corrosion and repair any damages to the wire harness.
