Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Galant

2 Answers

My 2001 Mitsubishi Galant shut down while driving on the highway.

I still had power for the lights and radio, but car would not turn over to start.
Had to have AAA tow the car to a local shop (not Misubishi).  They are telling me it is a bad crankshaft and they need to take apart the timing belt to get at it?

Hi.
Remove computer , take to TV repair shop and ask them to replace electrolityc capacitors .
There is 3 of them . All should be renewed .
For good quality stuff they should charge you max $ 15 .00 plus service fee.
Problem is , that this caps are design to work for max 5 years .
Hope that will make your car running .One of the cars I fixed was cutting off when driven ,
very dangerous - no brakes , no steering .Other will not start at all - sometimes .
Sometimes will start after 5 minutes or next morning .This is cheap and should be done anyway.

Why does it shut down while driving?


First, do not run engine low on oil. Next, run tests when it has failed. Spark to plugs? Correct fuel pressure?

My 2001 mitsubishi galant was traveling 60mph on the highway when the car lost power and came to a stop on the side of the road now it wouldnt start


Check the alternator fuse. It is either located in the fuse block under the hood and is a block type fuse or is part of the positive battery clamp. If you charge your battery and the car will drive for a while and quit again. You probably just have a blown fuse.

Driving down highway no signs of touble, totally stopped


a bad cam sensor will definitely make an engine not fire. I would start with replacing that.if that doesnt help, then look into the oil pressure sensor or maybe the oil pump? I know some cars have a safety circuit that disables the ignition if the pressure gets too low.

Needs tuning. Also replace fuel and air filters. If that doesn't help then it may need piston ring replacement.
