Question about Mitsubishi Passenger
I need to change the spark plugs on a 2001 Mitsubishi Pajero NM Exc 3.5ltr. Is there an easy way to do it? I am told that there is a cheat way without taking the motor out.
No, timing chains are not expected to be replaced periodically like belts. Ocassionally they get noisey at high mileages and require a new tensioner pad but usually the chain is OK with a new pad

First job is to remove the 4 bolts securing the Intercooler, Its not totaly necessary to remove, but makes it a lot easier to get to the pullies.
Remove the 4 Bolts and move the Intercooler to the left hand side of the engine
Loosen off the locking bolt on the centre of the pully and then loosen the adjuster bolt until belt slackens
Loosen off the forward facing locking bolt and then loosen the adjuster bolt (Hidden behind the top hose) until belt slackens
You should now be able to remove all the belts and replace as required.
On refitting the belts adjust as required and then do up the locking bolts, refit Intercooler and check all connections (you wouldn't like the intercooler fan to fail
Its as easy as that, Good luck and not be held responsible for any 'misfortunes' in carry out the job like breaking out in to a sweat.

Good chance it's the plastic coupling linking the rear heater area and the front of the truck. It's a small Y-coupling. Breaks and leaks all the time. Easily exposed to everything, like snow and ice kicking up.

You'll need to remove/loosen one of the components (such as the alternator or power steering pump) to relieve tension on the belt before removing the tensioner as it should be spring loaded. Installation is going to be the reverse of the removal procedure.
Also, if the tensioner is noisy, replace it.
