    Here's a 60k issue that I've never seen before.

    Front cover and belt damage
    Hmmm whats this sticking out of the rear cover

    How did that get their

    And the culprit.


    All oem parts were put on 20-30k miles ago, I've done so many that I can't say for sure I checked the m6x1 water pump bolts that mitsubishi uses to hold the water pump together. Maybe they forgot the loc-tite? Either way make sure to check these bolts before throwing your water pump in. The belt was 1 tooth off, not sure of any damages yet but it was running just fine when I got it.

    I've never seen that happen. I'm sure the valves are OK. Mine was a lot further off and I barely bent one valve. I'd probably reset the timing and do a compression test first though.

    I'd say your lucky. Could have been much worse.

    He said it's from the water pump. One of the bolts that hold the 2 halves together.
