Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Whistling & chugging 95 mits galant

We just had the distributor replaced, when we picked it up from the mechanic, it chugged on acceleration and incline. The mechanic said this was a bad spark plug wire. We replaced this, and it is no better, now comes a whistling noise under the hood. It sounds like it is coming from the alt. So under 2k rpm it chuggs on acceleration and incline, and over 2k rpm, it whistles. What could this be?

Could be the alternator bearings (sound) or could simply be air getting in the hoses check all air hoses by tightenning all the clamp screws (which is quite common to loosen over time can cause the car to run like **** and the sound)

95 Regal 3.8 Runs great but today started

Try a new distributor cap and rotor button,they are known problem areas.If the problem is not in the distributor then you will likely need to replace the catalytic converter,a plugged converter will not let the engine get to full horse power because it can't get rid of the fuel as fast as it is coming into the engine,which is not a problem for the engine at lower rpms but it is a problem when you need the power.

Engine first runs good, but progressive chug/misfire.

Check for vaccum leak, if not check or replace mass air flow sencor.
