Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Galant

Car Shuts Off when A/C is Turned On

Hello,

My 2002 Mitsubishi Galant was having trouble starting last week. On the weekend it didn't start. I replaced the cables to the battery which were corroded. The car starts now, but it tries to stall on me when I turn it on. If I am driving and I turn the A/C on, the RPM gauge goes from 2 to 0 and the car shuts off. Any suggestions?

I think you have a stuck compressor. check the clutch plate of the compressor. use a wrench to turn the nut at the center of the clutch. see if the plate turns either way. it should..if it does not turn, then it is frozen.

tnx 4 using fixya,

2002 Mitsubishi Galant will not start, sometimes. This just started when I got home today. Car sat for about 1 hour then wouldnt start. Engine was turning over but would not start. Waited about an hour...


Check your fluids, oil and coolant. May need to check radiator fan operation. And check for trouble codes. If the cel light came on, it should set a code that can point to the problem.

Hello, I have a 96 mitsubishi galant es that wont start


could be the crank sensor, you need to check spark and fuel delivery, if you have fuel then its got to be the high tension side of things that are wrong, does this model run off a coil pack for the ht, could be that, you said you change the alternator, check connections at the rear of alternator, this could be the supply for the ht etc,good luck.

If your battery post & connectors are clean, free of corrosion and tight my guess would be the starter or starter solenoid. (you didn't say if it was turning over ok or just not starting)

Has it overheated lately?
My wife overheated our Galant and it just stopped working, it cranks but that's it.
I pulled the sparkplugs and found them wrapped in a gewey jelly like substance. Like an oil/antifreeze combo.
I am going to replace the entire motor for $1000 as taking it to the mechanics to theorize and practice may cost more.
