Visual aids and step by step instructions ... this is no simple process ... can be found in the library automotive section. Go do some research on this before you try. Obviously, you are not a professional ... neither am I. I would do exactly what I am suggesting BEFORE I tried a procedure like this.

Changing timeing belt on a 04 lancer should I change the waterpump

When it comes to Front wheel drive cars and very tight places its best to change all accessary parts while you have it apart. How mad would you be if the water pump failed 2 weeks after you changed the belt?

Change timing belt galant 04 mivec 2.4

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.

Timing belt tensioner adjuster rod set hole “A” and cylinder set hole “B”—2004–2005 Galant and 2004–2005 Lancer 2.4L engine

To install:

Belt tension checking—2004–2005 Galant and 2004–2005 Lancer 2.4L engine

Cylinder block plug location—2004–2005 Galant and 2004–2005 Lancer 2.4L engine

Timing belt sprocket alignment—2002–2004–2005 Galant and 2004–2005 Lancer 2.4L engine

Lancer gl 2004

You will need to replace the timing belt and the balance shaft belt (if applicable). Your car may not have a balance shaft belt. Mitsubishi did away with that belt, but I can't remember what year it started. At 60,000 miles. And again at every 60,000 miles. You should also replace the accy drive belts at that time. If you don't replace the timing belt and it breaks, severe engine damage WILL happen. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Changed my spark plugs now its clicking

The dielectric grease simply makes the plug wire slide on the spark plug more smoothly (creating a better connection) and helps remove it later without destroying it. Wires should snap down and you may be hearing the arcing coming from one of the wires. If 'ticking' is the sound try looking at the wires closely while running in the dark. You may visually see the spark and you answer. Spark plugs are usually hand torqued but a torque wrench is never a bad idea.

If still no luck then I would suggest switching out plugs & / or wires with you old set to see if the problem disappears.
