Try turning the crank pulley, get a ratchet with the socket to match the bolt of the pulley. When you're turning lessen for any noise or if you feel any friction when turning stop. try this with all spark plug out. If noise or friction is notice there is a problem but if it move smoothly then you're fine.

    (1)you will need to follow #1 spark plug wire to #1 spark plug.

    (2)loose all spark plug and remove them.

    (3)on the #1 cylinder stick a long screw driver into the cylinder.

    (4)have someone turn the crank pulley using the socket and ratchet.

    *Turn very slowly.

    when you see the screw driver started go up continue turning the crank slowly. When the screw driver stop and just as you see and feel it's going back down stop and mark the crank pulley where it stop. Now there should be marking on the pulley make sure they're line up with the marking on the engine. After this is set look at the cam pulley there's marking on this pulley as well make sure it's line up with the engine marking if not turn the cam pulley to it's appropriate mark with the engine. Now your timing is set install your timing belt now.

    this is a disturbuless ignition system no way to set or adjust timing, all you can do is to make sure timing belt was installed properly. CAUTION, DONT GO TRY TO ADJUST. good luck

2004 Mitsubishi Galant I want to know if my engine if they are in interference my tummy bell broke


OK, you want to know if the 2004 Galant is an interference engine, because of a broken timing belt. Your car has the 2.4L engine, and its not quite an interference engine, but its very close. A broken belt MIGHT not have damaged valves when the belt failed. Your garage should be able to look at the valve gear and see if any valves are jammed. It's also possible to look in each cylinder with an endoscope camera for any valve damage. A new belt can be fitted, and the engine turned over to test compression. If there are problems spotted, then the head has to come off and the the damaged valves replaced.

My timing belt and balancing belt broke on my 1998 mitsubishi galant es and my husband put the belts back on in time but the car won't crank. The engine turns over when cranked but won't start. ...


Are you sure it was timing belt? If so. When you crank the engine, does it turn kinda fast without making a wump wump sound? When the timing belt broke it may have done some hidden damage. Its possible it may have bent the valve stems by piston hitting them because the timing to move them was off. You need to perform a compression test on all cylinders. Borrow or rent a compression gauge from an auto parts store. They will tell you how to use it, what to look for. If compression is bad, you may have to remove the cylinder head and have a valve job done. Except that you need to replace some of the valves. This calls for some skill or at least good apptitude in mechanics. OR somthing did not go right with the timing belt install.. Thats all I can do for you now. Check the compression. Good luck.

I was driving home all of the sudden my car went off so I pulled over checked the engine and I saw that the timed belt was ripped off, I replaced it set it up but still wont start should I looked for some...


Do a compression check on the motor. If it seems to be turning over faster than it did before the timing belt break, you may have bent your valves in the machine head. With out fixing the valves and restoring compression the motor will not run.

My wife mitsubishi stop. it ran hot and the battery is dead. could that mean that a belt broke?


Yes. If you loose belts you will loose water pump that keeps coolant moving and also the alternator which keeps charging the system. Less familiar with Galant belt setup but sounds like both parts are on same belt and has snapped. Don't drive until belt is replaced unless you want to buy a new motor or head gasket (not cheap)

1998 GALANT W/ 130,000 MI. TIME TO CHANGE THE


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......

Water pump chang on mitsubishi Galant 2.5 V6


Waterpump replacement requires removal and replacement of your timing belt. Because of this it is not your typical do it yourself repair. Engine timing is critical, and not having your belt set correctly can lead to catastrophic engine damage.

You can purchase a service manual at your local parts store to get an idea of what is involved, however this being an interference engine you should leave this job to a professional if you are uncertain enough about your abilities that you need to ask for help on it. The cost to replace the waterpump is far far less than the cost to repair a engine that had an incorrectly set timing belt.
