It is fairly involved, but also know that your Mitsubishi has an interference engine and if the timing belt breaks it will cause major internal engine damage, so don't put it off too long.

The exact requirements differ depending on if you have a 2.4L or 3.0L engine, but at minimum the tensioner pulley, water pump, valve cover, accessory drive belts and the outer belt covers.

For detail, you really should look at a Haynes or Chilton repair manual. They are relatively inexpensive manuals.

Or you local Autozone, Advance, etc. auto parts store.

Daughter has a 2004 mitsubishi eclipse gs with 30,000 miles. Mechanic recommends replacing timing belt now but book recommends at 60,000. Why now?


You don't need to. Is he trying to drum up service? The only reason to change belt at 30,000 is if you have to take it off for another work, like the water pump, something like that. Then you might as well replace belt, since it is already off. But just to change belt because it hit 30,000? No, no way.

There are some jobs you just need a manual for. This is one of them. Go to Autozone and buy a haynes manual for your car (abot $20).
