Very important. If the belt is not changed and breaks it will ruin the engine head and most likely cause devastating internal engine damage, usually resulting in replacement. Hope this helps!

2003 Outlander timing belt replacement


60,000 miles or 96,560 kilometers is about the longest amount of time and mileage to run on a timing belt. They might be lasting longer than that, but they can also fail at anytime after that.

At what mileage should I change the timing belt on a 2004 Mitsubishi Outlander. Thanks Sherry


It is suggested by any mechcanic to perform this maintenace every 80,000 miles if you properbly maintain your vehicle. That mean going by the owners manual suggestions. Also I would highly recomend changing the water pum as well for it runs off this belt and water pumps only last as long as the belt will also. If a new belt is installed without a new water pump it may fail in no time. I seen it happen more than a dozen times in the past ten years
