You do not need to reset the computer. The idle speed is low because the computer was reset when the battery was disconnected when the T belt was replaced, the system will slowly adjust the idle back up to the correct speed based on your driving habits, it learns as you drive. It will take about 100 miles.

Your transmission is shot.It will have to be rebuilt.Or a different trans put into it. Not a cheap repair.$3000 end up. Thats what happens for buying a over price toy guy.

When to change timing belt in 2006 galant

Timing Belt Replace ment Intervals for 2006 Mitsubishi Galant are as follows:

2.4L 4Cylinder engine: Every 60,000 miles

3.8L V-6 Engine: Every 60,000 miles

Both of these engines are "Interference Engines" which means that if the timing belt breaks, severe engine damage is likely to result.

I personally recommend replacement of the timing belt idler and tensioner pullies as well as the water pump because failure of these components will cause a failure of the timing belt.

My wife mitsubishi stop. it ran hot and the battery is dead. could that mean that a belt broke?

Yes. If you loose belts you will loose water pump that keeps coolant moving and also the alternator which keeps charging the system. Less familiar with Galant belt setup but sounds like both parts are on same belt and has snapped. Don't drive until belt is replaced unless you want to buy a new motor or head gasket (not cheap)
