Question about Mitsubishi Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My mitsubishi galant loses power while driving and the neutral light indicator starts to blink then suddenly picks up speed with a jolt. I flushed the transmission fluid to clean the bottom pan and strainer and know the car goes into gear but is unable to move backward nor forward.

SOURCE: mitsubishi galant stopped while driving and all transmission fluid spilled out

sounds like his transmission just died. On most cars whan the transmission goes, components inside fail and the car quits moving. But on some vehicles the transmission literally self destructs and blows a hole through the transmission housing, leaving a puddle of transmission fluid like you described. I've seen it before on Chystler products but not Mitsubishis, but from what you've described it sounds the very same.

If it is an automatic tranny, i had a similar problem in a 1989 CRX with an auto tranny. Your problem could be your torque converter, You may have knocked it a 1/2in or so when you connected and bolted the motor down to the tranny, in doing so you like i said, budged the torque converter out of its appropiate place. So it may or may not be grabbing like it should.....

If this is the problem, remove the motor from the tranny, (and you might as well replace your seal while at it if you havent), adjust the converter back into place, until it grabs ahold of the tranny, you will feel it, shove it back there. Take note of how it moves and what makes it come out of place, with that in mind, REPUT the tranny back in, bolt it down. Prey thats the problem

SOURCE: 2001 Mitsubishi Galant Transmission problem?

Could be a few things:

  1. Low on auto transmission fluid; this would cause you to lose a few of the forward gears (reverse is used less often so its the last gear to go Start the car and add fluid to the specified markings on the Auto Transmission dipstick
  2. Bad auto transmission fluid; Check the fluid, if its brown and gives off a burning smell, it needs changing along with the filter
  3. Bad transmisssion; if neither of the above are true, then it sounds like the clutches have burned out on the transmission or the transmission itself is bad; if 1 or 2 hasn't solved your issue the car needs to be diagnosed at a reputable transmission shop; Make sure they lay out all of your options and if you decide to have a major transmission repair done, the Kelly Blue Book value on a similar car similarlly equipted in exellent condition is about $6,800 retail
I hope this leads you in the right direction. Don't be afraid to post back with any questions. Best of luck.

SOURCE: 1999 F250 only goes in reverse, no forward gears.

I believe that reverse is operated by a brake band. So it seems to be stuck. It is operated by a piston, and the seal could have swelled and caused too much friction. But you could loosen up the adjustor so that it is disengaged, in order to get forward gears again. Perhaps you can force the piston to retract as well, once you drop the pan again.

The transmission computer has detected a malfunction. The 'power loss' may be caused by the transmission trying to go into 2 gears at the same time

The neutral light blinks whilst the vehicle is in drive


The blinking neutral light is an indicator of problems with your vehicle's transmission.

Have it checked by a qualified technician immediately. Be ready to answer 1) how often the vehicle is used, 2) average mileage (distance travelled) per day, 3) maintenance record, and 4) what was done/happened before the neutral indicator light started blinking.

Hope this helps.

I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT Neutral light blinking


Could be a wiring issue if you already replaced the speed sensor. I believe there are 2 speed sensors on that tranny though, and both are usaully replaced at the same time.
