Your car is old enough to vote so it may be beyond time to replace ignition leads.
If you can get it running at night, look under the hood, without light, and look for some sparks along where the leads run.
If you see none, then any cheap meter will verify if the leads are still conducting; they should measure between ~7,000 and 12,000 Ohms. If they appear way lower, then they are copper, way higher, they are junk. The resistance is there to dampen the fast pulse rise that can cause radio interference for a half-mile without the resistance in that range.

My car is missing need the wireing diagram for a 2003 mitsubishi galant es 2.4 ltr.


From the timing belt to the transmission the fireing orders are 1234 One and three fired the same time 2 and 4 fire the same time. Pull all the plugs for the spark plug on them and lay them across the top of the motor with plugs in them you can see which ones fire at what time. The spark plugs need to be touching a grounded part of the engine to fire. This also will help you find out if you have bad wires.

Changed plugs, plug wires, distributor, and rotor. Grounded neg wire for battery. Engine still missing.Not a fuel injection miss, but a miss you'd associate with plugs etc.


Did you check the ignition timing ? It should be for manual transmission 20+/- 2 deg BTDC

automatic transmission 20+/- deg BTDC

FYI---One time i dropped a new plug before i put it in and did not realize that the gap have closed up and started a bad miss..make sure all plugs are gaped correctly....could be something else but you can start here...Hope this helped ?

'83 Monte Carlo - Miss fire at idle/accel./driving


You can have car put on scope and it wll show any irregularities in the ignition system. It can also be dowithout any equipment. First, loosing ALL 8 spark plug wires, Now place the spark plug wires loosly back on, just secure enough to secure. You might need 2 people. Being the miss is more consistant in gear, APPLY THE EMERGENCY BRAKE , put trans into drive and raise rpm's till miss is obvious. Remove ONE plug wire at a time, TILL THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE IN MISS. Thats the cylinder missing. Start with the spark plug, inspect, work back to wires and cap. An EXTREME result will be NO COMPRESSION.
