HI there:
On 1998 Mitsubishi Galant 2.4L MFI SOHC 4cyl the Vehicle Speed Sensor is located mounted on transmission, near the shift linkage.

You will need unplug the sensor by pulling the tangs on either side of the plug away from the connector, then pull the connector off the plug, unbolt the speed sensor, and finally install the new sensor and tighten the bolt firmly.

End this job plug in the sensor, ensuring that the connector snaps into place.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Should be on your 2nd timing belt. If you have the 4cyl engine there is a balance belt that needs to be changed also. Mitsubishi recomends replacement at every 60,000 miles, your 10k over. Most of the time these motors are not interferance engines, But I have seen a few that broke a belt at high rpm that did bent valves......

Reverse light fuse is continually blowing 1999 mitsubishi galant


The speed sensor is probably the root of your problems. Likely the reverse switch wiring is routed through the harness for the sensor. That could also be the reason it goes into limp mode. Change the sensor and see if all problems are resolved. Good luck.

Transmission error code P1750


Might be really simple - but EXPENSIVE! I had a similar fault - apparently the first planet set breaks up. Cure - a new box. Price - crippling!

Don't be tempted to skimp on the box. Get a rebuild from a reputable supplier. A s/h box will set you back around £5-600 in UK where a rebuilt (guaranteed) will be more like £1800. The thing with the cheap box is it costs about the same to fit but you don't know how good it is till it's too late! Then you're still shopping for another but you're £600 lighter!

Also, you could be buying other faults. If the speed sensor has had a problem - the box will change badly (snatching) and that will be another £250 where the expensive box will have ahad one fitted!
