After you set your timing marks, remove the bolt from
the center of the tensioner. Remove the tensioner, and put it in a vise with small wood blocks to prevent
any damage to the tensioner. Also there may be a plug at the base of the tens. place a socket or flat washers around the plug to prevent damage. There are small holes in the push rod and housing slowly
compress the push rod to line up the two holes.
And insert a pin in the holes. this will keep the
tensioner compressed until.you're ready for it.
Also be sure to closly match the new belt and the
old one. There are two timing belts for this engine.
One is a 195 tooth belt the other is 201, if the belt
you use is a little to long, it will slip on the water
pump and cause overheat problems.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

Install serpentine belt on 91 geo storm


I believe this is for 1.8L engine, serpentine belt. If you have a different belt for each component, that is a different issue? With multiple belts, the component usually has a pivot bolt, you loosen the bolt, then move the component to release or increase tension on the belt, then tighten the bolt.
With a serpentine belt, the tensioner does that for you.

Timing belt needs tighten can it be done?


the tensioner for the timing belt is a hydraulic tensioner and automatically keeps the belt under tension. Because it is hydraulic it can leak oil which gets on the belt and will destroy it.. For this engine to get maximum life out of the belt, it is recommended to replace the crank shaft seal and the cam shaft seals and the hydraulic tensioner. All idler pulleys should be replaced as well as the bearings do a lot of work . If you want a good long lasting job I suggest an accredited shop that does a lot of your make of engine and spend the money now as it will save in the long run.. The noise is more than likely a idler bearing on the way out.

Replacing head gasket


It would be possible to do this as the belt will be out of the way but as it is tensioned then the problem will be how to reinstall it with the tensioner in the way. Far quicker, easier and safer to do the job correctly in the first place especially if you have no experience with engines.

ADJUSTMENT

Excessive belt tension will cause damage to the alternator and water pump pulley bearings, while, on the other hand, loose belt tension will produce slip and premature wear on the belt. Therefore, be sure to adjust the belt tension to the proper level.
To adjust the tension on a drive belt, loosen the adjusting bolt or fixing bolt locknut on the alternator, alternator bracket or tension pulley. Then move the alternator or turn the adjusting bolt to adjust belt tension. Once the desired value is reached, secure the bolt or locknut and recheck tension.

I need to find a timing belt diagram for a 1994 mitsubishi galant


Your car will have the 2.4L SOHC engine in it (AKA 4G64). This manual will show you how to replace the timing belt (and more). Timing belt procedures start on page 33.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/4570538/Mitsubishi-4G63-4G64-Engine

(P.S. this manual also includes the 4G63 engine, you can identify your engine by looking at the procedures for the Single OverHead Cam[or SOHC])
