First pop the hood and find the serpentine and alternator belts on the left side of the engine compartment. The serpentine belt runs around four pulleys. The alternator belt uses two pulleys. They share space on the drive shaft so they are right next to each other. Of the four pulleys using the serpentine belt, three of them are vertically in line (closer to the front of the car) and the fourth stands alone (closer to the cab). Of the three vertically in line, the middle pulley is the one used to adjust the tension on the belt. You must first break loose the bolt in the center of the tension pulley (the bolt is facing the passenger tire) by turning it counter clockwise. Then leave that bolt and go to the bolt connected frame connected to the other side of the tension pulley (this bolt is facing the front of the car). Turn that bolt counter clockwise until the serpentine belt is loose enough to pull off. Replace the belt and tighten in the opposite order. Once the desired tension is reached, crank the car and run it for a few minutes. Finally cut the car off and check the tension, tighten or loosen as neccessary.

what steps do i take to change a timing belt for a '97 mitsubishi mirage
Interference, so make sure you replace the timing belt and the water pump, otherwise you'll do some serious damage.
For a 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer ( 2.0 and 2.4 liter four cylinder engines ) ( timing CHAIN )
The 2007 Mitsubishi Lancer has only a 2.0 liter engine which has a cam belt that should be replaced every 60,000 miles. This is not an interference engine. The 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse has a 2.4 which has a cam belt the MUST be replaced every 60,000 mile and it is an interference engine. I see nowhere that the Lancer was equipped with a 2.4 liter engine.
Check the usual suspects the battery, starter and alternater if they are fine then you may have lost your timing belt. How many miles do you have on your lancer and when was the last time you replaced the belt?

You should change the timing belt on a 2003 when it wears out or breaks. Changing the belt beforehand is not needed.
Loosen the belt tensioner. Make sure that the belt can be removed easily. Replace the belt with a new one. Check that belt is clean before installing. Clean the pulleys if you have to. Tighten the belt tensioner to set proper tension.
