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.

    To install....continued







    1. Be sure that the crankshaft balancer shaft drive sprocket timing marks and balancer shaft sprocket timing marks are aligned.


    2. Install the timing belt “B” (balancer belt) on the crankshaft balancer drive sprocket and balancer shaft sprocket. There should be no slack on the tension side.


    3. Assemble an temporarily fix the center of the pulley of the balancer timing belt tensioner so that it is at the top left from the center of the assembling bolt, and the pulley flange is at the front side of the engine.






      NOTE


      When tightening the mounting bolts, ensure that the tensioner does not rotate with the bolts. Allowing it to rotate can cause excessive tension of the belt.




    4. Lift your fingers and the balancer timing belt tensioner in the counterclockwise position. Apply minimal torque to the balancer timing belt so the belt is tense without looseness. Tighten the assembling bolt to 12—16 ft. lbs. (16—22 Nm).


    5. Turn the crankshaft clockwise two turns to set the number one piston to TDC on the compression stroke. Check that the sprocket timing marks are aligned.


    6. Apply slight pressure at the center of the belt between both sprockets. Inspect whether the belt deflection is within specification (0.20—0.27 inch.). Correct as required.


    7. Install the crankshaft angle sensing blade, crankshaft drive sprocket, pulley washer and pulley center bolt. Apply clean engine oil to the retaining bolt prior to installation. Tighten the assembling bolt to 123 ft. lbs. (167 Nm).


    8. Slowly compress the timing belt tensioner adjuster rod using a press or vise. Align the set hole “A” of the rod with set hole “B” of the timing belt tensioner adjuster cylinder.






      NOTE


      Do not compress the assembly too fast as damage to the rod may occur.




    9. Insert a wire or pin in the aligned set holes to lock the assembly in place.


    10. Install the timing belt tensioner adjuster to the engine and tighten the mounting bolt to 15—19 ft. lbs. (20—26 Nm).


    11. Temporarily tighten the timing belt tensioner pulley. Align the timing marks on the camshaft sprocket, crankshaft drive sprocket and engine oil pump sprocket.


    12. Adjust the timing mark of the engine oil pump sprocket, by removing the cylinder block plug. Insert a bolt (M6, section width 10MM, nominal length 45MM) from the plug hole.






      NOTE


      If the bolt comes in contact with the balancer shaft, turn the engine oil sprocket one rotation. Re-adjust the timing mark and check to see that the bolt fits. Do not remove the bolt until the valve timing belt is assembled.




    13. Position the timing belt on the timing belt tensioner pulley and crankshaft driver sprocket, support it with your hand so that it does not slide.


    14. Position the belt on the engine oil pump sprocket while pulling it with your other hand.


    15. Position the timing belt on the timing belt idler pulley.






      NOTE


      Incorporate the timing belt. Then apply reverse rotation (counterclockwise) pressure to the camshaft sprocket. Recheck to see that each timing mark is aligned while the tension side of the belt is right.




    16. Position the timing mark on the camshaft sprocket.


    17. Turn the timing belt tensioner pulley upward using tool MD998767 to apply tension to the belt. Temporarily tighten and fix the belt tensioner pulley mounting bolt.


    18. Check that the timing marks are aligned.


    19. Remove the bolt that was inserted in the cylinder block plug hole. Replace the cylinder block plug hole bolt and torque to 21—25 ft. lbs. (27—33 Nm).






      NOTE


      Install tool MD998738 with your hands. Do not use any other tools to install the special tool as damage to the wire or pin inserted in the timing belt tensioner may occur.




    20. Gradually screw the tool into position so that the wire or pin inserted in the timing belt tensioner adjuster moves slightly.


    21. Turn the crankshaft in the clockwise direction; align each timing mark to set number one piston to TDC on the compression stroke.


    22. Loosen the timing belt tensioner pulley mounting bolt. With tool MD998767 and a torque wrench, apply tension torque 31 inch lbs. to the timing belt. Tighten the timing belt tensioner pulley mounting bolt to 33—39 ft. lbs. (43—53 Nm).


    23. Remove the wire or pin inserted in the timing belt tensioner adjuster. Remove tool MD998738. Install the rubber plug of the timing belt under cover.


    24. Rotate the crankshaft clockwise two revolutions and leave it for about 15 minutes.


    25. Insert the wire or pin, previously removed, and ensure that it can be pulled out with light load. When the wire or pin can be pulled out appropriate tension is applied on the timing belt.


    26. If the wire or pin can not be pulled out easily repeat the above until it can.






      NOTE


      Always check the tightening torque of the crankshaft pulley center bolt when turning the crankshaft pulley center bolt counterclockwise. Retighten if it is loose.




    27. Check again that the timing marks on the sprockets are aligned.


    28. Continue the installation is the reverse order of the removal procedure.

I have a 97 Mitsubishi lancer mivec... There is a crossover when it hits mivec bbut not much of a boost out of it


Care of Wikipedia! MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control system)[1] is the brand name of a variable valve timing (VVT) engine technology developed by Mitsubishi Motors. MIVEC, as with other similar systems, varies the timing of the intake and exhaust camshafts which increases the power and torque output over a broad engine speed range while also being able to help spool a turbocharger more quickly.

When to change timing belt on 2003 mitsubishi galant


Most timing belt suppliers recommend 50k to 60k miles for replacement. Your Galant has a interference engine meaning that if the belt fails your will incur major engine damage up to and including replacement of the entire engine.

So if you have over 60k miles on the car go ahead and change the belt, and while you have it apart replace the water pump.

When to change timing belt in 2006 galant


Timing Belt Replace ment Intervals for 2006 Mitsubishi Galant are as follows:

2.4L 4Cylinder engine: Every 60,000 miles

3.8L V-6 Engine: Every 60,000 miles

Both of these engines are "Interference Engines" which means that if the timing belt breaks, severe engine damage is likely to result.

I personally recommend replacement of the timing belt idler and tensioner pullies as well as the water pump because failure of these components will cause a failure of the timing belt.

Rebuilt engine. when started again car ticks. timing marks aligned correctly, timing light shows 20 deg. what gives?


Most likely the hydraulic valve lifters, notoriously noisy in Mitsubishi engines. My 2007 Galant Ralliart Mivec 3.8 V6 with less than 15000 miles ticks also as did my 1989 Gallant and 1997 Eclipse.

Should be on your 2nd timing belt. If you have the 4cyl engine there is a balance belt that needs to be changed also. Mitsubishi recomends replacement at every 60,000 miles, your 10k over. Most of the time these motors are not interferance engines, But I have seen a few that broke a belt at high rpm that did bent valves......
