The 2000 Mitsubishi Montero 3.5L is listed as an "Interference Engine" under timing belts in the auto parts catalog. This means the valves or other major engine parts will be damaged if the timing belt breaks while the engine is running. So replace it as part of scheduled maintenance. Many manufacturers recommend changing the timing belt every 60K miles. I do not know if Mitsubishi recommends different mileage intervals.

What is the real meaning of AOG?

Answer AOG is an acronymn for Aircraft On Ground. This indicates that the aircraft has a maintenance problem and is grounded until it is fixed. The a/c may require parts, servicing, equipment such as jacks, or a special inspection. Aircraft are grounded if they exceed their scheduled maintenance and/or inspections. However, the Airlines may submit a request to FAA for an extension of the scheduled maintenance by 5%. So, if the 18-month C-Check is due, the FAA will approve an extension of approx 90 days. The term is used primarily when ordering parts to indicate that all work on the a/c is on hold until a part is received. This will get the attention of buyers and the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer, which includes the A/C manufacturer) so they will rush to find a replacement part. Aircraft In Maintenance refers to an aircraft that is undergoing a scheduled maintenance and the completion date is within sufficient time to order a replacement part.
