Default 2002 Lancer NOW HAS ORIGINAL POWER BACK!!!!!

So excited to tell other Lancer owners about this fairly easy fix. Do you remember how zippy the Lancer was when you bought it???? How the gas mileage was better??

Simple - when that big belt gets replaced (it is due for it) replace the smaller belt - altenator belt at the very bottom. Husband did it - a little difficult but you can do them both.

WOW - my alternator had not been getting the juice to the spark plugs!!!

Mileage increased 4mpg and I can now dash out to make a left turn like I could when I bought it. I never knew the alternator belt on a lancer would make the difference.

I have also replaced the spark plug wires and made an improvement - but NOTHING like the Alternator belt. Now my 18 yr old son wants to drive it because it is fun again. I hope this helps~!!!!!
