Genuine Mitsubishi Part
Monteros have timing belt driven interference engines that require a timing belt service every 60,000 miles. The 2nd most common reason that we see Monteros end up in junkyards (#1 being collision damage) is a blown engine resulting from a timing failure. Furthermore, we have seen countless Montero engines ruined from cheap aftermarket timing belt kits, usually because the tensioner, not the belt, failed shortly after install.
This high quality Genuine Mitsubishi, Made In Japan, Tensioner (AKA Adjuster) is probably the most important item on the entire vehicle that needs to be OEM.
