Question about Mitsubishi Galant
Posted a problem two days ago about a 2002 Galant that was stalling completely at lights and when the brakes are used, and the check engine light came on.
Mechanic told me today that the head is cracked in the 2nd and 3rd cylinder. Told him that I just had that completely replaced in July and had not had any overheating problems with it since it was repaired. Parked the car after six weeks because it was stalling so bad. When I called the original mechanic that replaced the head, he said that it was impossible for the first mechanic to even know what cylinder it was just by looking under the hood and checking the codes. I am taking the car back to the mechanic who replaced the head gasket, bc I refuse to pay for another head gasket after driving the car for less than 1,000 miles after the initial repair. What do you think?
The cylinder that is missing will indeed set a code, all 96 up cars and trucks sold in the US have this self diagnostic ability, the system is called OBD 2
Yes you are right the repair should be performed for free if it is the same problem, head or head gasket, take this matter up with your local authorities dept of consumer affairs if the shop refuses to help you.
