Question about Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Well my mitsubish galant makes the loudest noise when you turn it on I think it has to do with the bands. When the car is cold it sounds like a helicopter when it gets warmed up it quiets down but the bands make the loudest squeeking noise

Replace the belts when they are worn and or dry rotted they become brittle and slip. sound is much worse when vehicle is closed. I would also try shutting the A/C off also sometimes the compressor will make a lot of racket if the clutches are shot.

97 expedition 5.4 doesnt idle very good


Surging idle is usually caused by vacuum leaks. Ford 5.4L engines are notorious for the PCV hose elbow leaking back behind the throttle body.

The PCV tube goes from the right (passenger) side valve cover and loops around behind the valve body. Inspect this hose on BOTH ends.

2003 GALANT ES. HOT/COLD CONTROL WHEN PLACED ON FULL COLD MAKES CLICKING NOISE IN DASH. CAN ADJUST TO SLIGHTLY WARMER POSITION AND CLICKING STOPS. A/C & HEATER BOTH WORK FINE. IS THIS SOMETHING THAT...


I had the exact same problem, yes it was the heater control valve, the repair was 285.00. The tech that replaced it told me it is a common problem for the Galant. He said that if you keep your temp selector on either all hot or all cold that it keeps constant pressure on the plastic gear teeth in the valve. As they break off one by one you begin to hear that clicking noise as the dont catch. When you finally break off the last one it stops working.

According to him if you always leave the dial at least one notch from fully hot or fully cold you will not experience a failure of the switch

As for is it easily fixed.....no, the heater control valve needs to be replaced. I looked into doing it myself but thought better of it. Its buried deep in the dash and most of the passenger side must be removed and I still couldn't figure out how to get it out. I think it ended up costing me about 300 dollars to get it fixed by the shop.

I think I would just keep right on going until it quits.

Coolant is leaking into the car


Check the evaporator drain, its possible that are clogged (under carpet, under dash passenger side).

Good luck.

"Humming" or "bearing" type noise in left front at highway speeds


That's a hub bearing. Replace the one that's doing it. I'm assuming this 'roar' is coming from the front, NOT the rear.
