What you tend to read about is you're supposed to replace the cambelt , waterpump, tensioner, idlers etc......BUT
It's all lies.
If you google the actual Mitsubishi 60K mile service instructions .....at the most you replace the cambelt. But there's lots of things to check.
All those extra parts were just cunjoured up by the new parts salesmen to make more money out of kids who don't know any better.
Straight from the owners manual.
No, the oil pump isn't on any of those lists.
I'm about to replace the timing belt on the dragons old 97 Legacy. I was going to buy the whole kit, idlers etc. Do you think that I should just buy a new belt and forget the rest?
