Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Galant
The purge flow in the evaporative emission control system is incorrect.
the purge flow valve is on the front of the engine bolted to the intake. has 2 big vacuum lines coming from it. the other working part of the system is the vent valve which is located on the evap canistor on the gas tank. you have to have a scanner and go into test mode to active each valve, you can hear them click when activated. if both of those valves are working properly then there is a blockage somewhere in the lines in that system, or the port on the intake is clogged. sometimes this problem can be difficult to find. the dealer can fix this problem, and it is fairly common on most newer mitsubishi's. carbon builds up and can break off and go into the system and get lodged somewhere causing a blockage and not purging the engine of excess unburnt fuel.
