Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

I changed the 02 Sensors on my 03 Mitsubishi Galant do I need to reset anything on my car? It turns on fine but idles low when put in gear and shuts off.

When the car is cold it turns on fine but after it warms and I put it in gear it idles low and shuts off. Then it gets harder to start and stay on.

Its a hot start issue.

Can be related to low fuel pressure or problem with crank sensor.

SOURCE: transmission delayed engagement at cold start

Depending on how Cold it is where you are, The cold will effect the Operation of the Tranny. I am pretty sure that your Tranny is Fine, Just Really Cold. Depending also on where you live, I use Valvoline Quick Change to service my Vehicles when I am on the Road. Have never had a Problem with them. On the Fluid, They make so many Different Kinds now adays that it is hard to Choose. Look in the Back of your Owners Manual and Use what is Suggested in there.

SOURCE: After starting car check engine

Diagnosis must begin with scanning your Engine Control Module to find out why it has turned the light on. The car may seem to be running OK, but there is probably a problem that is causing you to use excessive fuel and/or is threatening to destroy some high dollar parts like your catalytic converter.

I have a 1988 chevy cavalair station wagon that runs fine until it gets warmed up than you stop at red light it shuts off it starts right back up again until put in gear than it turns off again


I have to ask, how long since a tune-up? Can you check for applicable trouble codes, if there are any?
Maybe it runs ok in open loop, open loop doesn't use the 02 signal until it warms up? Closed loop dies use the 02 signal. Changing the 02 sensor is part of a tune-up.
With idle issues, clean the throttle body and any small idle air passages. Check and clean the idle air valve. Check anything that has to do with air flow.

use a scanner that is capable to read transmission codes and data, if there is no codes, check the pressure from the transmission test ports, because is leaking pressure internally.

You do not need to reset the computer. The idle speed is low because the computer was reset when the battery was disconnected when the T belt was replaced, the system will slowly adjust the idle back up to the correct speed based on your driving habits, it learns as you drive. It will take about 100 miles.

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.
