Timing Belt - parts purchase

Hey guys,

Looking for some assistance.... I am due to change my timing belt and am trying to figure out what parts to order for this. A friend is going to do it for me...

Could someone point me to the parts needed.. possibly on rockauto.com ?

Thank You!

David

It's not just a mileage thing, it's an age thing. And it's not just these cars, it applies to any car with a timing belt. Rubber gets dry and brittle over a period of years

Please please PLEASE for the love of god get your timing belt changed soon. It has nothing to do with the quality of the belt and everything to do with the fact that it's a belt. It's the exact same way for any car that runs a timing belt. Your crank shaft driving the pistons is connected to your cams ONLY by the timing belt. They move because the crank shaft allows it. If that snaps, your pistons will slam 263 horses worth of power into your open valves. Say goodbye to a running engine anytime soon. Its a BIG DEAL.

Onto OP's question, do NOT buy a timing belt from rockauto. Not that theres anything wrong with rockauto as a company, but their parts are NOT OEM. They are OEM SPEC. They are third party cheap chinese knock-offs, that's how they are so cheap. You NEED to buy OEM specific parts with something as important as this.

If youre changing your timing belt , its highly recommend you change the water pump along with the radiator fluid as well cause those things go out around the same mark as the timing belt as well. Might as well change your drive belts too, there are 2 for the GT model.

Cool

Thank You.. I have the GS model... but will be replacing the water pump and radiator fluid.

I was going to get a friend to do it, but he may not be able to do it anymore. I am no mechanic... most advanced thing ive done is change brakes and oil change. How would one get the step by step directions on how to do this? and is this something I might be able to do?

I have no problem giving it a try, as it is sitting in my yard not being used until the summer and I have an SUV...however I dont want to have it ripped apart and get stuck and have to tow it to a garage and pay someone else to do it... that could get rather pricey lol

K so after reading through a million Timing Belt posts by searching the threads.. I have come to the conclusion that doing it myself is not a good idea lol

I have called my Mitsubishi dealer and they quoted $850 just to change the timing belt. I am going to call back and get a full quote including water pump, parts and tax.

I called another mechanic and they couldn't find any info, so they had to turn it down.

I would still like documentation if it exists ... if anyone has anything like that, let me know. Thanks Everyone! I want to try to keep the cost reasonable, as I plan on doing a ton of work before the summer on this car. I plan on doing all new performance brakes, rotors, spark plugs and struts (gonna try doing it myself), installing stereo equipment (15" sub, amp, double din touch screen deck) just need the wiring harness, and want to buy led halo headlights and tail lights BUT just need to get this timing belt changed before even thinking about all of that lol

Wow they charge 815 and all this time I've been doing it for 400 I might have to raise my prices LOL. Changing a timing belt is definitely not for the faint of heart but it is possible where there is Will there is way. In order to change the timing belt you most probably will need a really good air compressor and impact wrench and possibly a good pulley puller for the harmonic balancer I think that's the only special tools you need. Possibly you'll also need a breaker bar and a really big socket for the big bolt on your harmonic balancer if you have any questions I can try to help you out I can talk you through it if you really want to do it yourself but you really going to have to have a good compressor and a good impact gun if you can get your hands on that the rest of it is cake. But it's the kind of cake that gives you diarrhea indigestion headaches

$850 my ass! call around to other mechanics, that's such a rip off. Screw the stealership. I got mine changed for $390. $280 for the labor and $110 for the belt. That is abhorrent

K so got an update on this.... got a much better price, I ordered the Belt and Pulley tensioner from Mitshubishi which will be $213 after tax, and found a mechanic that is going to do the work for $179.... they quoted 2.5 hrs.

Mitsubishi said not to bother with the water pump unless its leaking for having an issue, they said it is external so wouldn't save any time by doing it now.

Thanks everyone!

Yea eh.... id say... although 179 to change it seems alot better then I expected, does 2.5 hours sound right for a timing belt and pulley tensioner? Any other belts I should replace too? If so, what should I ask for? Going to hold off on the water pump for now...

Well it's probably a good idea to change the timing belt tensioner also but if you can't it's too expensive don't sweat it I guess maybe someone else will chime in and say always change it I don't know for sure all I can say is I'm at a hundred forty-four thousand k with the same tensioner also whoever said 180 bucks to 2 Chainz the timing belt is kinda low did they have a shop did you see the shop do they look professional

if I could do a timing belt change in 2 & a half hours MSP pretty good because I've done it on a few different vehicles and some of them it took two and a half hours just to get that harmonic balancer bolt off

you might a well change the drive/serpentine belt too that powers your electric systems as well, it should be alot easier, water pump too if ur buying ur own parts. After that youre all set for another 60k! just keep up with regular maintence too
