Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Galant
I have a 2001 mitsubishi galant ES 4 cylinder it has 133,560 miles...I have had my car since August of 2009 and I havent had any work done on it before...Today as I was waiting in the parking lot with my car running...it just shut off...no noise...no ****....just a silent shut off...I tried to start it back up and although it would "CRANK" it would not start...Me and my husband walked to the nearest gas station and purchased some oil thinking maybe that would be the problem...even with the oil there was no start up and i have a full tank of gas. I noticed that if I turned my key right before I start it...I am able to hear a "WHIRR" sound...I really want to know what is going on...every mechanic I have spoken to...seems to just do alot of guessing!
That sound you hear, does it sound like it is coming from the back of the car, fuel tank? This is most likely the fuel pump starting up. I would still have your fuel pressure checked, if too low you'll have issues. If fuel pressure is good it most likely has to do with the electronics; does it have spark? Remove a spark plug lead and check while cranking the engine over. Also it is possible the timing belt failed, remove a dust cover off the cam, crank over and be certain it rotates. My gut says you have an electrical issue, such as cam or crank sensor. You'll need to check cseveral items to confirm.
If I may be of further service, please ley me know.
