Default Timing belt change..when?



I have 60k miles on my 1999 Mitsubishi Galant V6, I'm just wondering when I would need to do the timing belt change at? Would 100k be stretching too far?</P>


thanks</P><edited><editID>galant4eva</editID><editDate>37985.7228587963</editDate></edited>

Fed stands for a Federal Spec Galant. If your not in California then you most likely have a Federal Spec Galant which should say in your owners manual (check it) that you will not need to change it for 100,000 miles. I havea California spec Galant so I can't be 100% sure on this butmost my friends at www.galantforms.com have Federal Spec Galants. So joing the board and ask away I am sure that someone there can give you a 100% for sure answer. In my opnion I would go ahead and do it at 60,000 just to be safe. Well good luck and hopefuly I will see you on www.galantforms.com </P>

Thanks for the quick response!
I have a Cal spec Galant too. I tried to go to the link you gave me, but it doesn't seem to work. I thought you might have spelled the link wrong, so I even tried www.galantforums.com, but it didn't work either.</P>

Nevermind, it works now<IMG src=smileys/smiley1.gif border="0"></P><edited><editID>galant4eva</editID><editDate>37986.5952546296</editDate></edited>
