Question about Mitsubishi Galant

Open Question

Flooded start I was driving up a on ramp, and sped up a little to catch the light, then i heard a small bang. Car stalled our during my turn, and turned off... I tried to crank engine and it kept turning over and over but no kick start... I look under hood, seems like a belt was ripped off, at the time it seemed like the timing belt cause the plastic guard around it was broken, and was able to remove about a foot long part of a belt. but upon inspection of car's diagram i found that both of my belts were intact and not ripped. so assuming this was a belt that was sucked up under the car and got stuck in my timing belt. the car was running at a funny idle before so i thought spark plugs went out, replaced them. still turning over but no starting... if i give it gas it kinda putts but never starts... 2002 galant

SOURCE: Timing belt and alternator belt both broke. Chance of cylinder damage?

hi 94 metro 180,000 on the clock save your money the valves will have hit the piston so they will be bent and only if your lucky the pistons might not be damaged but then you do the head it will blow the bottom half of the engine out before to long and you have to find out what the oridginal problem is and put right cut your loses sell the car as weigh in valve scrap you should get £100-£150 put it to another car

SOURCE: my 2000 mitsubishi galant es went dead, motor will turn over but

do you have spark? How do you know if your timing belt is good? sometimes it doesnt break just shed the teeth which could be missing under the crankshaft. The best way to check is to have two people. have one try to start the car and see if the camshaft is actually spinning. The crankshaft will always turn but if the teeth are gone on timing belt this would cause the belt to stay in one position not moving the camshaft. so if you can remove the upper timing belt cover and do this quick inspection with someone that will tell you for sure. if it does look like it is spinning then by hand turn engine very slowly with plug coil wires removed. and make sure teeth are all there. It couldve jumped timing. (valve timing)

SOURCE: 2000 Diamante, Timing Belt ? Loud pop, explosion, bang...

sounds like the belt tensioner. look for any drive pulley that doesn't actually drive anything but is turned by the belt... that is spring loaded and keeps tension on the belt... if it moves freely... it needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: 2000 Dodge Stratus - loud grinding squeal noise

if you have climate control the a/c comp. comes on
intermitently if the clutch is going bad thats a suspect also the idler pully bearing could be tired
or the ps pump could be binding.
one way to narrow the field is the next you shut it off
after driving a short time see if any of the is noticably
hotter than the others thats a place to start.
hope this helps good luck

My Polo Playa 1.6 2002 was driving fine, just heard a loud bang (backfire) and car stalled . Will not start sounds like engine is not turning. What could be the issue?

check the timing belt has'nt snapped , do not try starting engine until you are sure the belt is in tact, if ok get the OBD codes read as will narrow down if a switch/sensor is at fault , if nothing shows check the cylinder compressions

Flooded start

That was probably part of your timing belt and bang was a backfire when it jumped time, more than likely you will have to have new timing belt installed. The putts is it trying to fire on a non-compression stroke,don't crank it much, some models the pistons can hit the valves if it gets really out of time and that gets expensive.

Non so to speak without writing a book
You just have to check for codes & start
a logical diagnostic process of testing
You input is critcal for a shop to understand the
reason your there
You do not won't a tunp-up or anything else
You only want the immediate problem diagnosed
& resolved
Becareful not all shop know a lot or can solve all issues
Be part of the solution don't just hand over the key & not
be there sometime due their work on your car

Tercel flooding at random times, sparks coils injectors and filters all ok

Sounds like the "cold start routine" is missing its cue. The cold start sequence raises idle, and enriches fuel ratios. For a limited time during warm-up. Some cars use 2 sensors for the water temp. This means that the sensor which operates the water gauge or idiot light is different from the Engine Management sensor. So except for the flooding problem you would not know if it was working.

Did you check to see if the 4th injector was dry after replacement?

Another idea for richness is that fuel pressure is too high or that there is an air leak on the intake. This could coincide with not drawing in fuel to number 4 cylinder. Also, a lean condition on number 4 would ramp up the fuel to the other 3 cylinders as some metering systems are based on exhaust AVERAGES.

A simple test on a running engine with a spray bottle of water will produce a change in RPM once water is drawn into the air leak. This will pinpoint the problem.

I hope my solutions is helpful.

Starter suddenly stopped working. Loud bang when

It's most likely a timing problem, you may try too adjust it yourself; Loosen set screw on distributor and get a timing light. there also a chance it jumped a timing gear when you heard the loud bang..

1995 toyota tercel made a clacking sound and stalled

SORRY but I need a lot more information than what you have given me.
Where did the clanking come from under the car /from the engine/from gear box/back or front wheels/etc, and what is it doing now when wont start and just clicks ,,do the dash lights go out ,,
Turn on head lights and then turn the key to start (do the lights go outand clicking still there)
If so it sounds like the problem is in the converter
So let me know ASAP Ron
