Well, if you are going to undertake this job by yourself, be very aware that the SOHC & the DOHC engines are interference engines by design. This means that timing alignment is critical to the installation. if you experience no compression readings or even try to crank that engine over, it will do damage to the valve train or the piston surfaces themselves. also note that if the engine experienced the failure of the timing belt while running, it is important to check the valve train components
It has a timing belt ! Recommended to be replaced every 60000 miles.
when it doesnt work
Mitsubishi says every 60,000 miles it should be replaced.
Both the 2.4 liter 4 cylinder and the 3.0 liter V6 engines use a timing BELT
Hello: I am doing a overhaul on my 2002 Mitsubishi Galant. I inadvertently moved the crankcase while trying to remove the small timing belt while the larger timing belt was off. Knowing that, I would like to know is there a procedure to follow to correct this?
could be the timing belt
it is the belt by the alternator belt
