2003 Galant 4cyl .. After not knowing Car timing belt was what broke ..Car was attempted to turn on various times... How will I know if I have to re-built the engine ?


The Galant has an interference engine, when the timing belt breaks the valves stop and the pistons strike them. At the least you need a new head. There is really no way to tell how much damage was done without tearing the engine apart.

Please tell me about time belt . Is there any posibility to use time belt above 100,000 KM with out changing it.


2005 Tacomas (v6 or 4cyl) do not have timing belts. Instead they have timing chains, which do not need servicing unless damaged or rattling.

Someone told me to change out the timing belt and water pump and everything included (kit) but at what mileage or is this just a scam. it is a mitsubishi galant 2001 4cyl.


WELL TO BEGIN WITH, THE TIMING BELT & WATER PUMP NEED TO BE INSPECTED AT ABOUT 100,000 MILES. IF THEY ARE FOUND TO BE BAD ENOUGH THEN CHANGE THEM. THE WATER PUMP HAS WHAT ARE CALLED WEEP HOLES. THESE WEEP HOLES LET YOU KNOW THAT THE WATER PUMP IS BAD INTERNALLY, BEFORE IT LOCKS UP. THE BEST WAY TO CHECK THE TIMING BELT IS TO REMOVE THE COVER.

Timing belt “B” (balancer belt) and related components—2004–2005 Galant and 2004–2005 Lancer 2.4L engine


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the engine under cover.
  2. Remove the crankshaft damper pulley.
  3. Disconnect the control wiring harness connector, battery wiring harness connector and connector bracket to engine mounting insulator.
  4. Remove the harness bracket. Remove the upper timing belt cover. Remove the water pump pulley. Remove the idler pulley.
  5. Remove the auto tensioner. Remove the lower timing belt cover.
  6. Turn the crankshaft clockwise and align each timing mark to set the number one piston to TDC of its compression stroke.
  7. Remove the timing belt under cover rubber plug and then install special tool MD998738. Screw the special tool until it contacts the timing belt tensioner arm.

    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.
  11. Remove the timing belt idler pulley. Remove the timing belt lower cover bracket. Remove the crankshaft position sensor.
  12. Remove the crankshaft pulley center bolt and washer. Remove the drive sprocket. Remove the crankshaft angle sensing blade.
  13. Remove the balancer timing belt tensioner. Remove the timing belt “B” (balancer belt) from its mounting.

1998 GALANT W/ 130,000 MI. TIME TO CHANGE THE


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......

Need to know about changing the timing belt on my 2001 mitsubishi


This will take about 3-4 hours. If you look at the drive belts, they will all have to be taken off to get to the timing belt. The engine crankshaft has to be positioned for marks to line-up. The crankshaft will have to be prevented from turning so you can take off its drive pulley. Rotate until the alignment cylinder is near TDC, remove sparkplug, then packing a small rope on top of the piston prevents the engine from turning.. Once you change one timing belt, you will never buy another car with a timing belt again. You can get a manual on eBay.
