Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Unable to locate diagnostic link

Have a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant. It will not start. Acts like it is not getting fuel but will turn over. I went and got a scanner, but am unable to locate the diagnostic link. Can you tell me where it is?

I have been searching the net for an hour. I have not found specificallly the 2001. The years around it look like they could be anywhere under the drivers dash panel from the far left to the far right or even under the steering wheel.

Thank you.

You should find the obdII diag connector on the driver side under dash to the right corner near where the console meets the dash , depending on options you might see the mitz diag connector also . i have seen a piece of carpet cover it also sometimes . good luck .

I went out this morning to start my 2001 Galant and it's turning over but won't start. I've never had problems with it starting. I ran it 2 days ago only for a few minutes and today it's only 4 degrees...

well first of all. check to see if fuel is reaching engine, the line may be frozen. if so, put dry gas in to displace moisture in fuel line. just make sure its getting fuel and spark. try this! spray some starting fluid in throttle body. and if car runs then quits then you have a fuel problem. im from n.y. state and it gets pretty cold here in winter. just remove air intake hose to throttle body to spray in it, the big hose from air cleaner. have a good day !!

Our 2001 Galant will not start.

The fuel filter is possible but not probable. Questions to ask yourself: Was the car running of before failure (meaning was it running ok until you went to start it the next day?) If it died overnight or after parking it for a few hours I'd say no not the filter. Does it have spark? If yes then ok, if not probably a sensor (crank sensor / cam sensor failed) Does it get fuel? Crank it over for five seconds or so and check to see if plugs are wet. If no it may be a sensor or failed fuel pump or fuel pump relay.

Please let me know what you find.

My 2001 mitsubishi gallant quit running, acts like it is out of gas

try cheapest first; change fuel filter, if that doesn't work try fuel pump, if that doesn't work, it may be the fuel injection system, either the computer part of it or the mechanics of it
