The water pump is located in the time belt compartment. It would be best not to attempt this yourself unless your an experience mechanic. If your going to have the water pump replace you should go ahead and have the timing belt and front seals replaced while they are in there. Its a major pain to do this yourself, and a good shop will charge anywhere from $700-$900 to do everything I mentioned.

I got my galant used because of the water pump I am a mechanic and will not replace it again 97 2.4l engine needs to go to a shop for a water pump at any cost

Light wieghts..

............. I would add this

I did it in my drive way in 5 hours and 200 in parts.. the trick is divide and conquer. In order do this,,,


the alt

the Power Steering pump

the engine mount... prop up the engine with jack or wood blocks

the timing belt cover top

the water pump pulley

the crank pulleys

the lower tining belt cover

you will now see the belt and the water pump easily and if your have gotten this far the rest is self explanatory

only make sure you lock down the came pulley so you don't throW off your timing when putting back on the belt

the belt tension must be loosened to allow the belt to come off

get a repair book for this part..

a bit of work but I saved $1200 from the local shop price for all

Does a Mitsubishi Galant 3 liter engine have an interference engine?

You did not indicate the year your Galant 3.0L was produced. I looked up a 2001 model Galant LS 3.0L, and yes, it is an interference engine. Replace the timing belt AND water pump every 100,000 miles or kiss the valves goodbye.
