this includes timing belt change
new spark plugs
oils and filters etc
4hr service

just shy of £600

i just drove from texas to New York. The 2000 galant has 81,000 miles. We just put on another 1600 this weekend.

Performed a minor tuneup which consisted of changing the following:

oil / filter
transmission fluid
spark plugs
checked tire pressure (tires are relatively new)
wiper blades

The car drove like new again. felt really great.

To be done in the near future:
shocks/struts
timing belt
accessory belt

Are there any other maintenance items to change?
pcV valve?
Gas Filter? (connected to the gas tank)

Default Timing belt

I just recently drove my 98' Mitsubishi Galant from southern GA to central wisconsin. The tempature recently dropped down to negitive 20 degrees, i originally thought possible frozen fuel lines, but gas is getting to engine. The battery is keeping charge and the engine is turning over but i just want to figure why the engine isn't starting up. All electrical seems to work fine. Would the timing belt give me the same type of trouble?

Does it sound like its spinning over but getting no fire?
