Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Oil light comes on and engine stalls out.

I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Galant. I bought it used. The problem I am having is when I press the brake/slow down the oil light comes on and the engine either stalls completely out or it sounds as if it is trying to cut off. I have had the spark plugs changed, two oil changes. There is enough oil according to the dip stick. I am completely at a loss. Can you advise as to what might be causing this problem!

My 2002 Mitsubishi Galant has 145,000 miles. While driving it started to shake, ****, and almost stall out, but not completley. It feels okay until you put the car in gear. When you open the oil cap there...


sounds like you have a blown head gasket or either a broken piston ring. Check oil to see if it looks milky or creamy colored if so you have water and oil mixing.

Engine rumbles hard


Sounds like it maybe a vaccum leak because when you apply the brake you brake booster uses vaccum to assist in braking so maybe theres not enough vaccum (air) going into the engine so its causing it to stall. Thats just a guess

2000 Mitsubishi Galant, EA3A 2.4l motor. Oil leal


don't use 20w50 that is too heavy an oil for that motor. the most i would use is like a 10w40 and that is a last resort. your valves need adjusting or the hydraulic lash adjusters may be gunked up. there is a chemical called auto-rx (search web) that could help you out. just follow the directions for it. the only other oil seals i can think of are oil pan gasket, oil filter gasket, rear main seal, valve cover gasket.

Service engine light on 2002 mitsubishi galant


it could be the spark plugs, at least that is what it was for mine, if you have over 50k miles without a spark plug change i highly suggest one, also a oil /transmission change would be great for your car too if you haven't done those reciently. I would also suggest using a higher grade gas, sometimes this fixes the trick too.
If you try all those and still experiencing hard transitions please let me know and i'll try a more indepth analysis on your car.
Thanks jyotsna.
