About 65 to 75,000 mi.
this is what we call a zero clearance engine, and if it breaks, will bend valves in cyl head.
water pump needs to be done about same, depending on heavy use of the car.

I need to replace the water pump on a 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage DE 1.8 liter engine. Must I replace the timing belt at the same time?


No you don't have to, but if it has to be removed to replace the pump, why not be safe then sorry and replace it. They are not expensive and if you break a belt, you could possible get internal engine damage if the motor has interference valves in the engine

How to change time belt on 1995 mitsubishi mirage


You do not really need a manual to change the belts. All Mitsubishi cars pretty much hide the water pump under the timing belt. You should buy all new belts for the car and if you have 150,000+ miles consider replacing the water pump at the same time.
You will have to take off the power steering belt .
First , take off the negative battery cable so you do not blow an expensive fuse on the positive battery cable clamp. Facing the back of the car , reach UNDER the alternator and loosen the bolt on the bottom right side, now loosen the bolt on the adjuster block on top, you can now turn the adjuster bolt and move the alternator to change the belt.
To take off the steering pump belt on the front of the motor, you need to loosen the nut on the back side of the pulley it holds the adjuster pulley in place . With the adjuster pulley loose , you can use the adjuster bolt to move the pulley to adjust the steering pump belt.
Now take off the upper belt cover, support the motor, take off the motor mount, jack up the right front corner of the car, take off the front right tire, take off the engine plastic under cover.
Line up the TDC timing mark on the cover to the mark on the pulley, using an air wrench to loosen the center bolt take off the lower pulleys,
take off the lower engine cover, observe the timing marks/arrows and highlight with paint (crank marks and cam marks should all line up if not , rotate the crankshaft one full turn.), loosen the timing belt tensioner pulley ,take off the timing belt, counter balancer belt if there is one. Now you can unbolt the water pump, scrape the gasket, and replace it.
The good news is, if you have tools,a compressor, an air gun(for lower pulley bolt), patience , and four to eight hours to kill, you can actually save money and do it your self.

Water pump went out order new one ,it look like imay halt todis assembl rhe right side of motor to even get it ,including my timing belt


That is correct. The timing belt must be removed to replace the water pump.

CAUTION: Your vehicle is equipped with an "interference engine", meaning that if the timing belt is not replaced properly, or if the engine is not timed correctly, or if for any reason the timing belt breaks or comes loose, SEVERE ENGINE DAMAGE CAN RESULT.

Someone told me to change out the timing belt and water pump and everything included (kit) but at what mileage or is this just a scam. it is a mitsubishi galant 2001 4cyl.


WELL TO BEGIN WITH, THE TIMING BELT & WATER PUMP NEED TO BE INSPECTED AT ABOUT 100,000 MILES. IF THEY ARE FOUND TO BE BAD ENOUGH THEN CHANGE THEM. THE WATER PUMP HAS WHAT ARE CALLED WEEP HOLES. THESE WEEP HOLES LET YOU KNOW THAT THE WATER PUMP IS BAD INTERNALLY, BEFORE IT LOCKS UP. THE BEST WAY TO CHECK THE TIMING BELT IS TO REMOVE THE COVER.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system.

CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  1. Remove the engine undercover.
  2. Disconnect the clamp bolt from the power steering hose.
  3. Remove the engine drive belts.
  4. Support the engine with the appropriate equipment and remove the engine mount bracket.
  5. Remove the timing belt. Refer to the timing belt procedure in this section.
  6. Remove the power steering pump bracket.
  7. Remove the alternator brace.
NOTE The water pump mounting bolts are different in length, note their positioning for reassembly.
  1. Remove the water pump, gasket and O-ring where the water inlet pipe(s) joins the pump.
To install:
  1. Thoroughly clean both gasket surfaces of the water pump and block.
  2. For 1.5L engines, install a new O-ring into the groove on the front end of the water inlet pipe. Do not apply oils or grease to the O-ring. Wet the O-ring with water only.
  3. For 1.8L engines, apply a 0.09-0.12 in. (2.5-3.0mm) continuous bead of sealant to water pump and install the pump assembly. Install the water pump within 15 minutes of the application of the sealant. Wait 1 hour after installation of the water pump to refill the cooling system or start the engine.
  4. Install the gasket and pump assembly and tighten the bolts to 17 ft. lbs. (24 Nm). Use care when aligning the water pump with the water inlet pipe.
  5. Install the remaining components in the reverse order of removal.
  6. Fill the system with coolant.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable, run the vehicle until the thermostat opens and fill the radiator completely.
  8. Once the vehicle has cooled, recheck the coolant level.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the engine coolant.

CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  1. Remove the timing belt. Refer to the timing belt procedure in this section.
  2. If necessary, remove the alternator brace from the water pump.
  3. If necessary, remove the timing belt rear cover.
  4. Remove the water pump mounting bolts.
  5. Remove the water pump, gasket and O-ring.
To install:
  1. Install a new O-ring on the water inlet pipe. Coat the O-ring with water or coolant. Do not allow oil or other grease to contact the O-ring.
  2. Use a new gasket and install the water pump to the engine block. Torque the mounting bolts to 8.7-11 ft. lbs. (12-15 Nm). Install the alternator brace on the water pump. Torque the brace pivot bolt to 17 ft. lbs. (24 Nm).
  3. If removed, install the timing belt rear cover.
  4. Install the timing belt. Refer to the timing belt procedure in this section.
  5. Install the remaining components.
  6. Refill the engine with coolant.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable, start the engine and check for leaks.

I really hope this help (remember rated this help).

Where is the water pump located on a 1999 mitsubishi mirage?


The best bet is is for you to buy a Haynes manual for your car. Try autozone; generally available for around $20.

I am not familar with your specific car/ngine but I am familar with Lits in general. I believe your engine is tranvese mounted which means the fan belts are located on one end of the engine (left or right). The water pump is powered by a fan belt so go to the end with the fan belts. You should have an alternator, power steerring, air conditioning and crank shaft pulley that the belts run on. There should aslo be a pulley for the water pump. use the process of elimination to ID the water pump.

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

Why does the pajero seem to have two timing belts?


It seems to have two timing belts but in reality is only one. The other belt that you are looking at is the drive belt, this belt is responsible for driving all the other components of the vehicle like, water pump, ac compressor, alternator, etc.
