Topic: replaced timing belt at 62k miles Name: spcDate: 2000-05-05 10:44:46
hopefully everyone can get something out of this. i had my dealer replace my timing belt, water pump, all other belts, and spark plugs at 62,000 miles on my '97 LS 4WD. this set me back a cool $1,122 but i plan on keeping the car awhile and don't like to break down on the side of the road. the generous dealer even threw in a $28 loaner car. i asked to see all of the parts and the timing belt looked brand new. i know they say "you can't tell when a belt is going to break", but i bent the belt backwards and didn't see crack one. the thing was as strong, stiff and durable as any new $82 dollar belt i've seen. here's my point: don't think you have to replace the thing right at 60,000 like mitsubishi says. i'm not providing any guarantees here but my new belt is going at least 90,000. also, i did all my fluids myself (diffs, tranny, x-fer case, oil) and saved about $300. it's not that hard, just takes about 4 hours the first time.
