Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Check Engine Light On

I have a 2002 Mitsubishi Galant and my Service Engine Soon light came on last night when I started my car. I have no idea what could have caused this and don't have the money to spend on figuring it out. I checked all of the car's fluids and filled the ones that were a little low. The light is still on. I'm not sure if this is related, but for awhile now my temperature gauge has been reading in the hot area, sometimes in the red zone when I am idling or going slowly when it's warm outside. It immediately goes back to normal when I drive at a higher, more constant speed. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong? If not, does anyone recommend a good, honest, and inexpensive mechanic in the Santa Barbara area? Thanks!

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.

Service engine soon light stays on


You have an issue that the computer has found. That's why the light is on. You need to get a scanner hooked up to it to read out the error code. There are many, so you have to start with a scan. Some auto parts stores will read them for free, but not much more.

2001 mitsu galant 6 clynder service soon ingine light keep on co


i would start by taking it to autozone and having them read the trouble codes that are in your car. they offer this service for free. You can then go ahead and fix the problems. It could just simply be that you did not put the gas cap on all the way the last time that you filled up the tank.
