Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

My son just took his 03 mitsubishi galant (61,000 miles) in to a dealer in Rockville MD to repair/replace a pwer window. They told him that he should also get a full 60,000 maintenanace (spark plugs, belts, coolant replaced) for $600. Also he should get a replacement for a main belt (?) on the engine for $1000+ or he might have a future problem with the engine, He will probably only keep the car for 1 more year. What do you recommend?

Hello. This sales technique, now so common with many repair shops is so aggravating. Do they recommend this 60K maintenance, absolutely. Is it critical, no. Do you have to replace the serpentine belt at 60K miles....no, not unless it is frayed and cracked and squeeking.

I recommend that you fix the power window now and visually inspect the serpentine belt. If you do need other maintenance consider a local repair shop after you shop around. Some dealerships are also called stealerships for good reason. Joe

Could be a bad chain guide or tensioner.I've got a 85 Nissan 720 4x4 2.4 with a Weber carb.Had her since 1993.It had 108,000 miles on it when I got it.Not long afterwards,Carb went bad,no one could rebuild it,tried 3 places.Finally took to Nissan Dealer,they told me that the carb was a bad design and they could not rebuild,they told me it was junk,they were right,not long afterwards motor went bad,so I got a remanufactured Jasper motor,with 3 year-or 100,000 mile warranty,got it in 2009,I now have 61,000 miles on it with a new Weber carb and it runs awesome,never ever had a timing chain issue,speedo now has 344,000 miles on it.Had the engine installed by a Jasper engine installer,a pro,seems like whoever has been putting timing chains in your engine is clueless on these 2.4 engines,our Nissan's have a history of head gaskets blowing,never timing chain issues.Here is a link on how to replace your Timing chain. Repair Guides Engine Mechanical Timing Chain And Tensioner AutoZone com Here is a photo of mine,need more help,let me know.

No heat on a 2003 galant. Could hear grinding


Call dealer service rep explain noise and I'll bet he suggests your heater control valve motor has failed. I just replaced mine 3 months ago. Same sympthoms. I could only get motor from dealer. and Had someone in my area who specializes in auto a/c work install it. It came out to be about $300. But you have to have heat!
