TIMING BELT & SPROCKETS R & I NOTE: Some procedures may differ slightly due to engine construction. Removal 1) Remove all necessary air ducts. Position No. 4 piston at TDC of compression stroke. Align timing marks. See Fig. 2. Remove fan and fan shroud. Remove belts. If necessary, remove radiator and splashguard. 2) Prevent engine from rotating and remove crankshaft timing pulley retaining bolt. Remove upper and lower timing belt covers. Remove spring from tension pulley. Loosen adjusting bolt and move pulley toward water pump. Remove timing belt. CAUTION: Ensure pistons are at TDC when rotating camshaft or damage may result. Inspection 1) Handle timing belt carefully. Avoid twisting or kinking belt. Do not allow belt to become contaminated by water, oil, dirt or other contaminates. Inspect belt for cracks or damage. If necessary, replace. 2) Measure tension pulley spring length and force. Spring length should not exceed 2.76" (70.2 mm) and spring force should not be less than 197-347 lbs. (27-48 kg). 3) Replace tension pulley spring if not within specification. Installation 1) Pull tensioner fully toward water pump side and temporarily tighten retaining bolt. Ensure No. 4 cylinder is at TDC on compression stroke by rotating crankshaft until keyway aligns with mark on front crankshaft seal housing (12 o'clock). Rotate camshaft until timing mark on cam gear (arrow) aligns with mark on upper camshaft cover (notch). See Fig. 2. NOTE: When timing marks are aligned as stated above, No. 4 piston is at TDC on compression stroke. 2) Position timing belt over crankshaft sprocket, oil pump sprocket, camshaft sprocket and tensioner in that order. Ensure belt is positioned in sequence given and without slack between sprockets. Loosen tension sprocket adjusting bolt allowing spring tension to tighten belt. Tighten adjusting bolt temporarily. 3) Temporarily install crankshaft pulley bolt and rotate crankshaft 2 complete revolutions in opposite direction of engine rotation, until marks on crankshaft and front oil seal retainer are aligned again. See Fig. 2. Loosen tensioner lock bolt, allowing tesioner spring to fully adjust tension. Tighten tensioner lock bolt. 4) Install timing belt covers. To complete installation, reverse removal procedures. Tighten all bolts to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS table at end of this article.

Torque water pump mounting bolts to 27 Nm (20 ft. lbs.).
First you need to take off all the belts, then remove the a/c line to axcess to the 8 mms bolts holding
the upper and lower timing belt covers. To facilitate the job you will need to remove lower crankshaft pulley. This is a delicate job, since you have to access to the cam belt, I suggest buying the haynes manual for your car and following the step by step illustrated procedure, before starting the job.
3.0l Mitsubishi 6 cylinder.
support engine... remove engine mount... remove alternator, power stearing pump, compressor (if equipt) do not remove hoses from power stearing pump or compressor move them out of the way were they wont get damaged. Remove the tension pulley for the serpentine belt, and the tensioner for the compressor belt if equipt. then remove the compressor mounting bracket. Next remove the engine mounting plate and the crank pulley and balancer assembly. you should now be able to remove the the 3 piece timing cover. Once removed remove the tensioner spring from the water pump and loosen the tensioner nut. Remove the belt. At this point it is also recommended to replace the water pump and plumbing as well. The water pump service life is aproximately the same as the timing belt at 60,000 miles. This engine in stock form is a non interfering type engine. Meaning that moving the cams or crank out of sync will not cause damage. Turn each of the cams over by hand and line them up with the timing mark on the top of the back cover with the marks on the pulleys. Using a wrench turn the crank so that the pulley mark lines up with the mark cast into the block. replace the belt, tensioner spring (replace tensioner if warn) and tighten the tensioner bolt. roll the crank over 2 complete turns forward and recheck the cams to make sure the marks are still lined up. roll the crank backwards and recheck the timing marks again. (this process is much easier done with the plugs removed.) If everything is still lined up correctly (crank at TDC and cam pulleys pointing to each designated mark on the covers.) reassemble the cover and assessorys in the reverse order that they were removed and reinstall the old motor mount or replace if needed.
