I cannot find the Cylinder block plug on Mitsubishi galant 2.4L

I am doing my first timing belt and I no idea where the plug is on the block to put my screw driver in it so I can hold the counterbalance shaft. The picture that I get from allldata is horrible and gives no written location as to where it is.

My 2005 lancer 2.4L SOHC cylinder block plug is located just under the exhaust maniflod on the engine block. Look under the front, centre of the car just behind the exhaust manifold at the same level as the oil pump pulley. It took me a long time to find it. I had to remove the entire plastic splash shield to find it and access it. I'm sure it will be in the same place on all the 2.5L regardless of what model you have. email me if you need more help. darret@shaw.ca.

There is a 14mm bolt that you have to remove just follow the side of the block where the balance shaft is located on the block. If you need any help just email back so that I can send you pdf version of the manual as fixya site doesn't allow us to do that.

I am having the same issue on Mitsubishi Galant 02. Clattering on acceleration, herky jerky idle. Pulled a code multiple cylinder misfire. My mechanic's diagnosis is bad valve cover gasket causing oil to seap into the spark plugs and bad timing belt, which I have not replaced at 150k miles. I do however know my fuel injectors do need cleaning, he hasn't ruled that out either. Have you pulled any code on it? I have read on engine knock sensor going out on some of these also. Hope this helps some.

My Mitsubishi Galant ES 2005 has completed 95000 kms. What necessary service and maintenance are required now...??


Timing belt for sure if old. I'd change all belts. An engine flush and radiator flush would be a good idea. If you've never had a tune up you might do so. Change plugs and wires yourself. A transmission service if you haven't had one in recent years.

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.

How do i replace the water pump for a 2001 mitsubishi galant?


This is a very complicated process, as you have to remove the timing belt. If you are not very mechanically inclined, and do this yourself you could cause complete engine failure as the engine timing is very critical. This is known as a "interference engine" meaning that the pistons WILL hit the cylinder valves, either bending them or punching holes in the pistons if the engine timing belt is not replaced in the exact position that it needs to be. You could opt to check out a repair manual to give yourself an idea of how complicated this is. They are available at any auto parts store for about $20.
