I tried to start up my 2003 galant (31,000 miles) only to hear a loud clicking noise coming from the engine. The batttery was not dead, and i didn't leave the lights on. When I put the keys in the ignition all the lights show up on the dash like usual, but the car just wont get past the clicking noise to turn over. What could this be? I tried jump starting the car, but the car i didnt start.

But you can hear the fuel pump when I try to crank the car but when i stop trying to crank it you hear the fuel pump go off. So if you could help me someone, anyone I would be totally happy :) my car is a (2001 Mitsubishi Galant 4cylinder)
Uh oh Clunks are a real bad sound. Valves hitting pistons etc Check crankshaft turns by handand check valve gear rockers etc. To push in tensioner put it in a vise and SLOWLY wind in There is a small hole near piston end of tensioner that you have to line up with piston and put a small allen key or nail through to retain piston untill you refit it With belt in place only then remove pin
If the clicking noise is from the dash its the heater control valve and see below
I had the exact same problem, yes it was the heater control valve, the repair was 285.00. The tech that replaced it told me it is a common problem for the Galant. He said that if you keep your temp selector on either all hot or all cold that it keeps constant pressure on the plastic gear teeth in the valve. As they break off one by one you begin to hear that clicking noise as the dont catch. When you finally break off the last one it stops working.
According to him if you always leave the dial at least one notch from fully hot or fully cold you will not experience a failure of the switch
it is the heater control valve that is located next to your glove box the control valve has a motor atached to it take your glove box out and the lower part of the dash
then you can get to the part to replace it (Dealer item only ) around $150.00
