How do I know when I need to get a new timing belt for my Mitsubishi Adventure 2005 model? Previously someone else owned this car so I am not sure if that person had the timing belt replaced already or not and I am not in touch with the seller anymore. What are the signs i need to watch out for?

Timing belt replacement is dependant on mileage usually around 100000 km. A timing belt can break without warning and the result is an expensive engine rebuild. If in doubt replace it depending on mileage

SOURCE: Toyota Land Cruiser check timimg Belt

Hi,

I am assuming that you have a series 80 diesel engine and that it has run for about 100,000 kms hence the warning light and the changing of the timing belt. Based on the instructions of its repair manual you need to "remove the grommet off from the speedometer and turn off the lamp by pushing the warning light reset switch, then replace the grommet." Alternately, you can try to reset the entire computer of the vehicle by removing the battery cables for a couple of minutes. Pls note that some car radios/head units would revert to security default (ask for a code) when power is completely removed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: timing belt 2005 4 cylinder camry

Hello, A 2005 Camry with a 2.4 4 cylinder engine has a timing CHAIN not belt. I don't think that there is a routine maintenance schedule for this. If there is no audible noise coming from the chain area, you probably have nothing to worry about.
I hope this helps

2003 and up Honda Accord with 4 cylinder engines do indeed have a chain and the V6 has a belt which must be replaced at 110,000 miles. Why? Ask Honda, they designed the engines.

2005 Ford Focus L4-2.0L VIN N Hello your vehicle has a timing chain, you do not have to replace it ever... It was designed to last the life of the vehicle, unless you have a water pump, or a timing pulley or even a timing tensioner go bad, that is when you would service the timing chain. I added what your vehicle needs at it's 90,000mile service below, hope this helps... (subytech1)

Is there a cam belt on a mitsubishi colt 1.1


I have a Colt 2005 Z30 1.1. I went to the shop asking for a shift of timing belt. I was happily surprised when the guy said that it had a timing chain instead of a belt and did not need to be changed. (I do not know how long does the chain holds, but definitely at least twice as long as the belt)

My Mitsubishi Endeavor (2005) has run 60000 miles. I am going to change Timing Belt. Is Water Pump actuated by the Timing Belt ? So does it make sense to change the Water Pump at the same time? Thanks in...


Its a rule of the thumb that when ever you do a timing belt yopu also change
  1. the crankshaft seals
  2. cam seals
  3. water pump
  4. tensioner pulley(included in the timing kit)
It will just save from paying someone just to pull it apart and do it all over.To reach the timing belt/chain all these will have to be pulled apart so why not change it so it lasta you another 100k's

My 2000 mitsubishi galant es went dead, motor will turn over but


do you have spark? How do you know if your timing belt is good? sometimes it doesnt break just shed the teeth which could be missing under the crankshaft. The best way to check is to have two people. have one try to start the car and see if the camshaft is actually spinning. The crankshaft will always turn but if the teeth are gone on timing belt this would cause the belt to stay in one position not moving the camshaft. so if you can remove the upper timing belt cover and do this quick inspection with someone that will tell you for sure. if it does look like it is spinning then by hand turn engine very slowly with plug coil wires removed. and make sure teeth are all there. It couldve jumped timing. (valve timing)
