Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Working on a 2003 Mitsubishi Galant due to a shudder in the brake pedal at speeds over 45. It is coming from the left front and I replaced the brake pads and rotor with no real change in the shudder. Any suggestions?

If you already did the brakes and rotor something else in that wheel is loose. Check for ball joints being worn out. how about wheel being out of balance maybe due to pot holes this winter? Also try this
find a place on that corner of the car where you can push down on the car to load the suspension (find somewhere that won't hurt the car like top of the shocks under the hood) while bouncing up and down watch the steering wheel. If it is moving something is damaged in the suspension. If this helps please reply
good luck

Transmission shudder on 1997 Mercury Gran Marquis

When you get a shutter- drag the brake pedal lightly-
that will turn off the torque converter clutch if the solenoid
is working

The rpm should go up with any brake pedal application-
if the converter is releasing

If you determine the torque converter clutch is bad & the
shutter,then the trans has to come out

Check engine & trans mounts also for wear

Check to make sure your body grounds are good at all points. Particularly from the battery to the body. If ground is good to the engine for starting it, and it runs, but the ground wire from battery to body is disconnected or dirty/corroded, then that would be your problem. There's not much as far as ground between motor and body because of rubber engine and transmission mounts. Try a jumper cable from ground to body at the clean metal of maybe the bumper. Unless of course the bumper is rubber. But test this with a jumper ground to body.

Braking problem

check all brake lines for breaks or tears, then check the brake master cylinder, finally if problem persists, check brake booster. Master Cylinder and Brake Booster should be mounted together on driverside against the firewall.
