Mitsubishi Pajero timing chain/belt

12 April 2012

I have been advised that the chain timing belt or the tensioners don't require changing in my 2004 3.2-litre turbo-diesel Mitsubishi Pajero. Could you please confirm this?

That's correct, the 3.2-litre turbo-diesel engine has a timing chain, not a belt, so doesn't need to be replaced.
