Mitsubishi Lancer 2004: Timing belt replacement?

Asked by Marcin Tudos

I've got a 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer ES with 80,000 km. Do I need to get the timing belt done, since the car is 11 years old?

It would be wise. Belts are usually changed either by reaching a specified mileage, or at a specified time limit. Your car hasn't yet reached the mileage, but it has passed the time limit. It's not worth taking a risk on the belt and potentially suffering major engine damage.
