Hle 81: You use "DOT 3" or DOT 4" Brake fluid.
As far as motor oils, Mitsubishi recommends 5W-30 in colder climates and 10W-30 in hotter climates. Using a good quality oil and changing it on a regular basis along with the replacement of a quality oil filter will give you a long life motor.
At my shop, I use Castrol GTX 10W-30 and usually the OE filters.
I suggest changing the oil at 3,000 mile intervals. Not all the tech's on line agree to the same intervals, but having owned and operated my own shop for 30 years and been in the trade since 1968, I have found that the common denominator for the longest lived motors were the ones with the scheduled changes like I had mentioned. I have customers with Toyota's, Nissan's and Honda's which have gone past 300,000 miles on the original motors without oil consumption problems.

If U look in your owners manual it tells U that type of stuff. If U don't have the manual for the oil it should tell on the dip stick. For the brake fluid its more than likely DOT 3 fluid.

Hope this helps

Check your fluids, oil and coolant. May need to check radiator fan operation. And check for trouble codes. If the cel light came on, it should set a code that can point to the problem.

How many liters of transmission fluid needs 2.4L engine? 2002 Mitsubishi Galant.


Hello, After you've replaced the trans filter and pan gasket, pour 3 Qts ATF into the fill tube and start the car. With your foot on the brake, move you gear selector from park to low and pack to park again. Leave the car running in park and check the trans fluid level. Normally after a service your transmission should take about 4 Qts, but it's easier to add more than take some out if you overfill it. Top it off to the bottom of the fill mark. As your transmission temp rises, your ATF will expand and your fluid level will rise. At that point it will be at the top of the fill line. Hope this helps, James Booth. PLEASE RATE THIS!!! :))

What kind of brake fluid does a mitsubshi galant year 2000 need?


Normal DOT3 fluid is the manufacturers recommendation for your vehicle.
If you are flushing the system out, DOT4 is acceptable, but not necessary.

Mitsubishi ONLY requires DOT3.
