according to Mitsubishi service manual on my car which is a 2001 4cil galant is every 60000 miles, yours shoul be around the same ..
You don't repair a serpentine belt. You replace the worn or broken belt with a new one.
when it doesnt work
Mitsubishi says every 60,000 miles it should be replaced.
it is the belt by the alternator belt
Probably just a worn belt. The 99 Galant upper belt is easily tensioned and the lower belt is not too difficult to replace. A fair shadetree mechanic can replace both in 30 minutes for less than $20.
How do you replace the timing belt on a 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer?

remoremove the timing belt cover, remove old belt after aligning timing marks on cams and crank gear if still in one pc. if broken belt, align marks, install belt-making sure marks are still aigned when belt is tight
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.
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?
5 hours to replace. better to buy the belt then find a mechanic to do the job. the dealership says it's between $700-3000. and 9 times out of 10 it did damage to the heads, pistons, valves, etc.
could be the timing belt
Remove air box, pulley is located just under attached to engine block. Should remove bolts take off belt, and replace pulley and belt.
The Mitsubishi Galant VR4 is an interesting alternative to their Evolution model. It was available as a saloon and estate car. It could seat up to 5 people, depending on whether the 5th seat belt was in place.
Every 60,000 miles
Are you sure it's a serpentine? From the manual, a 1999 V-6 Galant should have 2 drive belts. 1 should control both the power steering and water pumps and the other is for the alternator and A/C compressor.
Specifically, where and what do I do to tension either belt? Thanks!
To replace the water pump you are going to have to go down past the timing belt. if you dont feel comfortable replacing the timing belt then you would be better off leting a pro handle it. the reason i say that is cause if the timing belt is reinstalled incorrectly it could cause major engine damage (bend the valves)
i don't think you need to remove the enigine.....i also own a 2003 galant and i had mine done at a dealership......costed around $700 and i got it back in a couple of days.....results and prices may vary...
