SOURCE: I have a 1997 Mitsubishi Galant with rough idle

I am having the same issue on Mitsubishi Galant 02. Clattering on acceleration, herky jerky idle. Pulled a code multiple cylinder misfire. My mechanic's diagnosis is bad valve cover gasket causing oil to seap into the spark plugs and bad timing belt, which I have not replaced at 150k miles. I do however know my fuel injectors do need cleaning, he hasn't ruled that out either. Have you pulled any code on it? I have read on engine knock sensor going out on some of these also. Hope this helps some.

Acura integra loss of power please help


I think that's normal. Just make sure the clutch is adjusted right. An inch or less free play at the pedal is usually what's called for.

There is no "break in" for the clutch-goes right to work as it's supposed to. What does your speedometer say?

If fluid level is correct. Transmission clutches are worn your feeling a slip.If your going to keep it get trans overhauled.

I have a 2002 4.6, just recently with no check engine light the truck has a huge loss of power, it feels like I'm pulling a trailer , it revs up but doesn't drive normal till 50 mph


Exhaust Converters last 12 to 14 years,
except for the folks on this web site

Check that out,may be partially blocked

When you say revs up, if you see any tach
movement & very little vehicle response,
then the trans is slipping & has to come out &
be rebuilt. Fluid change only gives you new fluid,
not a fix for anything,will just slip worse

You should have changed the O2 Sensors at
100,000
Clean MAF once a year

You know the routine,spark plugs etc

The transmission of my 1995 riveria seems to be slipping


you are possibly looking at a new clutch if manual drive, this sounds like the thrust bearing is warn ( whiring noise)as well as the clutch plate ( slipping as you accelerate), if its an auto, try topping up the fluid for the autobox, as this also sounds like its empty( whiring noise and loss of power to drive), dont forget when checking the auto box fluid, make sure the motor is running and obviously in park...hope this helps

Lacks power on acceleracion.new sparks plugs and cables.does it have a plastic or metal timing belt,0


Try a fuel filter,the timeing belt won't cause poor acceleration.If the ignion system is good then you either have fuel or exhaust problems.You may need a catalytic converter if the fuel filter does'nt work out.

Vibration and/or slippage feel on slow right turn


You could be experiencing a slippage from the transfer-case as the clutch in there has to give or "slip" or drive-line binding could occur. most of the time this can be corrected just by servicing the transfer case and using the proper fluid and additive for the viscus clutches inside. The proper fluid is "autotrac fluid" from any g.m. dealer. its not cheap but must be used because of this condition. You could also be experiencing tire slipage because the clutch may not slip as it should. once again check and or service tha transfer case. To check the fluid you have to remove the "fill" plug on the rear of the transfer-case. This is the upper plug. Some are an allen hole requiring an allen wrench and some have a big hex bolt head aprox.1 1/4" in diameter. after removing the plug you should be able to feel the fluid on your finger if you stick it in there. autotrac fluid is clear in color and should not smell burn't. Good luck
