Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

I have a 2000 galant. for a couple of months it would hesitate between 40 to 50 mph and act like it was jerking. after a drive to the grocery store i was cruising at 35mph and then I felt a **** and all the sudden i heard the motor accelarating but the car was slowing down. all the sudden i had no gears at all. could this be a bad switch, a bad converter or my trans is just gone completely? is there a way to diagnose the problem? please help?

The best you can hope for now ,is,replacing the trans filter,and replacing the filter,also a additive if the filter change helps.If this does not help,take it to a transmistion man.

Most common problems with hesitation is low fuel pressure or a faulty throttle position sensor.

I think the truck may have a vapor lock. The reason I think this is because when it is cold it runs great but when it gets the least hot or even warm it acts like it is out of gas and tries to shut do

Has a engine misfire or ignition control module is bad . Your best bet take it to a qualified repair shop that can diagnose the problem by testing an not guessing .

My 2003 Mitsubishi Galant (V6) started to hesitate and die. It starts back up fine and will die again when I let off the gas or stop. It will run fine for a couple of months (and a few tanks of gas) and...

It is your idle air control (IAC) motor. Its located on the bottom of the throttlebody. All you need to do to change it out is remove the air intake hose from the throttlebody, unplug the connector and remove 3 screws. But the part isn't cheap. I would suggest finding on online because at a local parts store it will be around $250

Engine looses power and jerks on 1500-2000rpm

Did you get a Check Engine light? Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. If no light, then I'd say you have an ignition lead (spark plug wire/insulators) arcing inside one or more spark plug wells.
