CAMSHAFT BEARING OIL FEEDING CAP/CAMSHAFT BEARING CAP/CAMSHAFT BEARING THRUST CAP REMOVAL

CAUTION

When the camshaft bearing cap mounting bolts are loosened at once, the mounting bolts jump out by the spring force and the threads are damaged. Always loosen the mounting bolts in four or five steps.

Loosen the mounting bolts of the camshaft bearing caps in the order of number shown in the figure in four or five steps, and remove the camshaft bearing caps.

INSTALLATION SERVICE POINTS

CYLINDER HEAD GASKET/CYLINDER HEAD ASSEMBLY INSTALLATION

CAUTION

Do not allow any foreign materials get into the coolant passages, oil passages and cylinder.

1. Remove the sealant and grease on the top surface of cylinder block and on the bottom surface of the cylinder head. Then, use the white gasoline or the like to degrease the sealant application surface.

2. Apply the sealant to the top surface of cylinder block as shown in the figure.

Specified sealant: ThreeBond 1217G or equivalent

NOTE: Install the cylinder head gasket immediately after applying sealant.

3. Install the cylinder head gasket to the cylinder block.

NOTE: When the cylinder head gasket is installed to the cylinder block, check that the sealant is securely applied to the bead line of the cylinder head gasket.

4. Apply the sealant to the top surface of cylinder head gasket as shown in the figure.

Specified sealant: ThreeBond 1217G or equivalent

NOTE: Install the cylinder head assembly immediately after applying sealant.

CAUTION

After the installation, until a sufficient period of time (one hour or more) elapses, do not apply the oil or water to the sealant application area or start the engine.

5. Install the cylinder head assembly.

CYLINDER HEAD BOLT ASSEMBLY/CYLINDER HEAD BOLT INSTALLATION

1. Replace cylinder head bolts with a new ones.

2. For two cylinder head bolts of the timing chain side, the washer can be removed from the bolt. Install the washer, with its sag facing upward, to the cylinder head bolts.

3. Apply a small amount of engine oil to the cylinder head bolt threads and the washers.

4. Tighten the cylinder head bolts by the following procedure (plastic region angular tightening method.)

  1. Tighten the cylinder head bolts to the specified torque in the order of number shown in the figure.

Tightening torque: 35 +- 2 N*m (26 +- 1 ft-lb)

Mitsubishi Outlander. Engine Mechanical

CAUTION

  1. Apply paint marks to the head of cylinder head bolt and the cylinder head.
  2. Tighten the cylinder head bolt to 90 degrees angle in the tightening order. Additionally tighten to 90 degrees angle, and check that the paint mark on the cylinder head bolt is aligned with the paint mark on the cylinder head.

5. Install special tool MB991928 or MB991895 which was installed for supporting the engine and transaxle assembly when the timing chain was removed.

6. Remove the garage jack which supports the engine and transaxle assembly.

7. Remove the engine oil pan installed temporarily.

CAMSHAFT BEARING THRUST CAP/CAMSHAFT BEARING CAP/CAMSHAFT BEARING OIL FEEDING CAP INSTALLATION

1. Install the camshaft bearing caps to the cylinder heads.

NOTE: Because the camshaft bearing thrust cap and camshaft bearing cap are the same in shape, check the bearing cap number and additionally its symbol to identify the intake and exhaust sides for correct installation.

2. Tighten each camshaft bearing cap mounting bolt to the specified torque in the order of number shown in the figure in two or three steps.

Tightening torque: 12 +- 1 N*m (107 +- 8 in-lb)

FRONT CAMSHAFT BEARING CAP ASSEMBLY INSTALLATION

CAUTION

When the mounting bolts are tightened with the front camshaft bearing cap tilted, the front camshaft bearing cap is damaged. Install the front camshaft bearing cap properly to the cylinder head and camshaft.

1. Install the front camshaft bearing cap to the cylinder head, and temporarily tighten the front camshaft bearing cap to the specified torque in the order of the figure (1).

Tightening torque: 17 +- 3 N*m (13 +- 2 ft-lb)

2. Tighten the front camshaft bearing cap again to the specified torque in the order of the figure (2).

Tightening torque: 30 +- 2 N*m (22 +- 1 ft-lb)

FUEL HIGH-PRESSURE HOSE INSTALLATION

CAUTION

After connecting the fuel high-pressure hose, slightly pull it in the pull-out direction to check that it is installed firmly.

In addition, check that there is approximately 1 mm (0.04 inch) play. After the check, install the stopper securely.
